Game: Hummingbird Heartbeat

Hummingbird heartbeat is a mellow jaunt through the countryside. On your journey you will meet exciting challenges and no two trips will be the same. On the way you will encounter many different power ups and the game will become more and more challenging. Use the A & D buttons to help you gain height and fly though the world. Avoid the ground as it will cause you to end the game, you can go as high as you like but it will cause you to lose sight of your bird! Check us out on Facebook (www.facebook/HummingbirdGGJ) and Twitter (@HummingbirdGGJ).


Approved for All Audiences: The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…
Bigger Picture: The game touches on a political, environmental or social issue.
May the (Web) Force Be with You: The game runs in a browser with no plugin.
