Great! I'd love to here them. The guy who did Airstrike.mp3 probably
won't have any more time for the game, so it's really great that you
are helping out.

This is a good idea even if we have a map "outside" of the
levels. I'll see if I can make it happen after the levels are working
as they should.

Yes, they have some small effects. For example if you take the bird bonus the
birds start following you around. We have to work a bit on the bonuses..

My ideal is the same feeling as the old game "Cannonfodder", I thinks it's 
pretty close to what you'd like. It's all about the graphics and sound..
