GaCuCon: Feed your desire to murder pigeons with Flappin Nutz


Old man yells at birds

There's a soft spot in my heart for SHMUPS, right next to the hardened part where I want all birds to be deep-fried in canola. Though still very much a work in progress, I enjoyed a few ridiculous rounds of Flappin Nutz: A game about an angry old man who looks like Stan Lee (and whose name is Stanlee) who hangs from a helicopter to shoot at birds. Why? Because they shat on his car. I can relate to this. 

From the developer's site:

Flappin Nutz is a classic arcade style shoot em up where the player will take control of Colonel Stanlee "Hellfire" Mihalek in his war efforts against flock after flock of the enemies responsible for defecating on Mihaleks prized Bel Air. Enemies will attack the player from all sides of the screen and poison Mihalek with unique status effects. The war will not be an easy one however, as Mihalek will have to travel through different stages and battle against more than your average pigeon. 

The studio, Lonely Missile (twitter), hopes to wrap up production this year on PC.  I got my hands around this title at GaCuCon and it was pretty hard. Also, dick jokes.
