Description
A simple forward scrolling arcade shooter. You fly your ship through Toronto, defending it from the evil enemy planes. Supports up to 4 players (on the XBox 360)!

How to Play
Fly your plane around using the left thumbstick on your controller or the arrow keys. Shoot with the right throttle or the space bar. Your friends can join in by pressing the start button!

Installation Instructions
Heavy Install - XNA Game.
1. Install DirectX 9.0c+
2. Install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0+
3. Install Microsoft XNA Framework 1.0 Refresh
4. Download Game, Unzip and double click "TOBam.exe".

You probably already have DirectX 9 and .NET 2.0 installed thanks to Microsoft Automatic Updates. There were 4 other XNA games created at TOJam #2, so it's worth the trouble.

Technologies Used
This game was created using XNA and C#, with Xbox 360 support in mind.

Jim's Corner
Did you see all those planes? That's NUTS! While it starts seemingly like Capcom's 1943, the sheer number of planes makes this a different beast altogether. I love playing this game on hard. When level 3 hits - you're DEAD. Perhaps the most thrilling game created at the jam. The movement of your plane is subtle and classy, and Toronto makes the perfect scrolling background.
