I managed to put this together in well under a week using Stencyl.
Use the arrow keys to control the bird, eat fish for points, and watch the air meter!https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/285 ... LATOR.html
(doesn't seem to work well in Chrome)
I intend to keep working on this in the near future, adding sounds/music, more npc's, and perhaps multiplayer functionality.
Thanks for looking!
