Andrée's Arctic balloon expedition
Built during three weeks as an team building exercise, and follows S. A. Andrée in his expedition to the northpole in this 2D almost flappy bird game.
The balloon is constantly losing altitude and throwing cargo overboard will help lower the weight and maintain their altitude. Entering snow clouds will build up snow on top of the balloon and will cause the balloon the lose altitude faster, 🡐, 🡒 can be used to shake balloon to make snow slide off.
Seagulls are just dicks, avoid them at all costs.
"Andrée's Arctic balloon expedition of 1897 was an effort to reach the North Pole in which all three expedition members perished. S. A. Andrée, the first Swedish balloonist, proposed a voyage by hydrogen balloon from Svalbard to either Russia or Canada, which was to pass, with luck, straight over the North Pole on the way. The scheme was received with patriotic enthusiasm in Sweden, a northern nation that had fallen behind in the race for the North Pole." - Wikipedia
