warbl is a simple video game for Windows where you control the game with the pitch of your voice. As a spaceship flies along, you must use your voice to maneuver your ship safely through a series of obstacles in your path.

warbl was developed in OpenFrameworks in Code::Blocks under Windows 10. No OpenFrameworks add-ons were used. Ports to other OpenFrameworks environments should be relatively straightforward.

Future potential additions to warbl include:
