This post is a translation of my post in Russian: http://www.hedgewars.org/node/2122.

UFO in the game works like a Birdy gear, you must permanently "wave your wings" pressing UP. Moreover, if you'll fall while you're using the UFO, you will drop your turn and health; if you incidentally touch a wall, your UFO will disappear!


  • 70% gravity compensation
  • UFO doesn't disappear when touch ground
  • UFO disappears when DOWN button pressed

As UFO doesn't disappears on ground collision, it may be used for one more interesting thing - if your piloting level let you, you can drop enemy hedgehogs down to the water (push it using the UFO).

This one will not happen. Completely unbalances it and makes it too easy. If we'd wanted to do this we bloody well would have.

Oh, what the heck. 1PLXzL1CBUD1kdEWqMrwNUfGrGiirV1WpH <= tip a hedgewars dev
