Savvy Chopper was created as part of a game jam exploring possible applications of Gregg Tavares’ HappyFunTimes, a structure for networking phones together quickly and easily. Up to 24 players pair off and work in tandem to pilot fruit-copters. The first team to airdrop 3 hats on George Costanza wins. The game is run on a computer, and players connect to the local wifi via their phones. Players then twirl their phones to spin the props of the fruit-copters.
