Tickleplane is a six player game that uses the keyboard as a gestural input. Each key is programmed to move the plane in a different direction. To move, players must repeatedly tap each key to move the plane in the direction they want, surviving obstacles and attempting to outlast other planes. When the plane takes damage, words can be typed out to perform mid-air repairs. Tickle the different parts to pilot your plane, outmaneuver your friends to win!
