The game LOOKS fantastic, anybody know if these levels are completely scripted or is there some randomization with each play?

I have only put in about 15 minutes but it appears to be all scripted, no endless mode.

I have to admit I am a little confused with the gameplay. You basically travel from screen to screen, so I really don't know how big a level is. When you die, you go back to a check point and have to go back through the screens again but they are cleared out now, so there is no way to get nectar again. So if you cleared all of the flowers but left two enemies on a screen, you would encounter just the two enemies with limited nectar to fight them. It may start you with a small amount of nectar when you continue, not sure yet.

Also, when you move to the next screen the bird is at the far left, sometimes it is hard to have enough room to pull back to shoot the weapon. There appear to be three types of attack and they have different ranges. Each attack requires nectar to use.

Sorry my impressions are disjointed, I am really just trying to figure out how everything works. Honestly it looks good but I am not sure I like it or not.
