Bunyan Bonker

It’s a beautiful day for some Bunyan Bonking! You are a large tree, home to many a squirrel. When angry lumberjacks (who all look surprisingly like folk legend and giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan) come and try to chop you down, it is up to you to protect your community. Tilt and wiggle to hit (bonk!) the lumberjacks and save the squirrels! HOW TO PLAY: Press and hold the space bar to tilt yourself back. Let go of the space bar to swing forward and hit the lumberjack enemies on the head. The longer you hold down the space bar, the further back you tilt - and the faster you swing forward when you let go. But if you press the space bar at the wrong time, you could lose all your momentum instead of building it up! So time your tilts correctly, and defeat the oncoming enemies!
