January's #1GAM Entry - Haywire

I'll be coming up with a post-mortem later in the week, but here's my #1GAM for January.

Fair warning: it's pretty buggy and not much of a game. The collision in particular is terrible.

The idea is to fly your little spaceship around, collect the animals at the bottom of the screen and deliver them to the mothership.

To pick up an animal you'll need to deploy the grappling hook (using A). However, this makes your ship a little harder to fly, so you won't want it extended all the time.

Once the animal is grabbed, take it to the mothership that floats around at the top of the map. There are five animals in total to rescue. After that, it's fun to smash the ship up.

Did I mention it's a bit buggy?

Nice work! Such a simple concept quite well executed.

If it wasn't for the need for a "restart game" button I'd be happy with it :)

Thanks :)

I tried to keep it as simple as possible, but maybe I went a little too far. There's still a whole bunch of features I'd like to add, so I might release an updated version further down the line.
