Installation Notes: 

Honeymoon has been developed using Microsoft XNA Framework 3.1.
In order to execute the game make sure that the XNA Framework
Redistributable 3.1 is installed properly. The redistributables
can be downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads.
You will also need two XBox 360 controllers (or compatible) to play the game.

Brief Play Description: 

The game is played by two players using the XBox 360 controllers.

Both players control a small monkey on it's planet. You can run
around the planet using the left analog stick. By running the
planet will revolve around its axis. You can jump with the A button.
Triggering the right trigger button mid-air, you
can stomp onto the planet's surface and move it.
Move around the screen by combining each of
these actions: jumping, running, and stomping.

To make life easier: You can walk without rotating
the planet by holding the left trigger button pressed (left and
right ctrl-key).

The games objective is to grow coconuts and send them over to the
planet of your friend. Rotate the planet such that the small coconut tree
faces the sun light coming from the top of the screen.

Once grown the tree will produce coconuts. The production speed
depends on the illumination by the sun.

Ripe coconuts will start to orbit around your
planet. Hit them with your monkey to send them
towards the other planet. The game ends once a
player sent a total 10 coconuts to the other player.
