A downloadable game

The original Hungry Birds game was made in 48 Hours for the ZGBJAM2 (https://itch.io/jam/zgb-jam-2) game jam. The Game Boy ROM is available (hungrybirds_jam_version.gb) for download and can be played in your emulator of choice or on Game Boy hardware using a flash cart or other means.

An updated version was completed shortly after. High score, the ability to revive your birds, and graphics enhancements are included in the new version. The Game Boy ROM is available (hungrybirds.gb) for download and can be played in your emulator of choice or on Game Boy hardware using a flash cart or other means.

Story

The theme for the game jam was "I"M HUNGRY!!". Mother bird has appeared with a bevy of delicious worms for her three chicks. Unfortunately, she has also collected not so delicious rocks.

Game play

You control three chicks using the A (worth 3 points), B (worth 2 points), and UP (worth 1 point) buttons. Help the hungry chicks devour worms while avoiding eating rocks.

=GOOD
=BAD

Be careful as the speed of the worms and rocks will increase with your score! In the updated version the mother bird will occasionally throw a heart if one or more of your chicks ate a rock.

Good luck!
