Time your speed and angle in an attempt to throw a Frisbee as far as possible. Then take control of the receiving player, and position yourself for the catch! If you do manage to catch it, quickly throw it again. Keep going until the Frisbee hits the ground, and see how far you can make it!

An update to the classic "Flying Disc" mini-game from California Games.

Update September 30th, 2016 (version 1.0):

Considering this game done! Moving out of WIP section.

Update September 18th, 2016 (version 0.4):

Full game loop now in place, including infinite levels (no more running off the end) and saving your high score.

Implemented a split screen mechanic (receiving player in one view, and disc in the other) but the limited view for the receiver made the game too hard.

Next steps:

* More level layouts.
* More sprites.
* Music and sound.
* Less Mario :)
* Power-ups (maybe).
* Randomized layouts (maybe).

Update September 13th, 2016 (version 0.3):

Basic game loop now implemented (although it is easy to go beyond the play area and break the game).
