Re: Flap Happy and Fancy Free

Added some lil bits to indicate score death and, finally just 3 lives ( although it's a bit late and they don't update in the display currently) The game now returns to the menu screen a-okay after you die, ready for the next game to begin. https://twitter.com/refreshgamesuk/status/96138606702585446...

Re: A Homebrew Game I made called Get It!

I can happily say it has passed the "let the kids play with i"t test!

They enjoyed playing through your game as best as they could, my littlest particularly liked the music :)
