    # Installation

    - Download (see `assets` below), and unzip `` and copy the contents over to the `/switch/` folder on your sd card, so that you have a folder `/switch/Hurrican` with many folders and files inside.

    # Controls

    - Left analog stick = walk/duck/aim (hold up/down to look)
    - Dpad = walk/duck/aim (hold up/down to look)
    - Y = shoot
    - B = jump
    - X = hold for lightning beam (control angle with stick/dpad left/right)
    - A = powerline
    - R = grenade
    - L = cycle weapon type
    - ZR = smart bomb

    # Current Limitations

    - Don't try to remap buttons in the controls menu, it asks for a button press, but doesn't react to Joycon input. The only way out is to force quit the game with the home button. If you mess up preferences, just delete `/switch/Hurrican/hurrican.cfg`

    - The tutorial level (if you select "Start Tutorial" instead of "Start New Game") currently crashes just after loading.

    # Building

    git clone
    cd hurrican/Hurrican/src
    make clean
    make -j12
    the zip file is created in the Hurrican folder, not in src.
