A Quiver of Crows - exit the stage through here.

Crow Rescue!

Finding captive crows throughout the stages, and shooting the cages frees them.

In-Game Physics

Some bullets are heavier than others. Depending on the weapons chosen, shooting at the the tower of totems could knock it down. Running into it with the crow also causes it to fall, but it's more difficult.

Ragdoll Bodies

Following the theme of real world physics, dead bodies will ragdoll into unique piles. Bodies will stop most travelling bullets, but this laser can pierce multiple bodies. Collect upgrades (four levels) in order to make your four weapons even more powerful.
