The project "Birds" was developed under 48hours in school at a small campe competition, so i tought it would be a nice time to try SFML out. As i said it all happend in 48hours + some sleep so the code is not so well written. I will rewrite moast of the code before i show it for you guys(ofc that is if you want to see it?).

The concept of the game was a small puzzle game were you had 3 characters with 3 different abilities. And you had to use all of the 3 to solve the puzzle. The main goal of this level is to take the green "egg" from the "fort" guarded by owls to your nest(the top left of the screen).

Some explenation of how you play it cus there is no available playable:

1. Use the small bird to get into the fort - the small bird is the only one small enough to fit into the entry.

2. Use the middle bird to defeat the owls - the middle bird is the only one with the attack function

3. Take the green egg and put it into the "teleporter" so the egg transports out of the fort - the big bird is the only bird strong enough to lift it.

4. Use the small bird to get out of the fort

5. Take the big bird an transport the egg to the nest

And the graphics is just placeholders which i "stole" from super mario & yoshis island.

 Also my delta timer is kind of crazy so when i run the program and record with fraps some of the things is acting a little wierd so the video have to wait until i fix it. The same goes for the playable. So here's some screens.


But i'm happy with what SFML performed and i think im gonna use it for 2D apps in the future, thanks!
