Hate the game.

It's basically the old 1990's "helicopter game" (helicoptergame.net) themed like Mario and made ridiculously hard.

It's 100% frustration and 0% fun.

39? Geez, that's impossible from where I'm looking at now. Can't clear those low then high ones or vice versa. Have to be lucky enough to get them all in the middle.

I can't get pass the fact that this game is so popular when in 3 seconds, your game is over. Start. Boom. Crash. Done.

What is it about birds in a game that makes it so viral? Angry, now flappy.

And you literally get seconds or less to look at the ads, unless you pause.  But people pay for the ads, so they must be effective.

Thanks for the link. Fun, a little easier. Yeah, very similar. Not quite as funny when the bird hits the pipe though. Smack!

Up to 15!

Read some of the tips. One of them is "don't blink". Ha ha. I use a musical technique - when you count beats as you play your whatever instrument, I count taps. 2/2 works for me.

This is why I don't play the big computer games. I get totally immersed in them and everything else falls to the wayside.

I am also feeling the pain of my mortality and my hand-eye coordination being worse than I thought at the age of 30...  day 1: 27

Go on Twitter - lots of people struggling to get to 3, 4, 5 or even the first pipe. 27 is awesome compared to most.

Wow, that's a good score! I deleted the game in disgust - the best I could do was 25. Android or iOS?

iOS.  A little easier on the iPad than on the phone too.

Amazing how many times I hit exactly my high score without being able to improve on it.  Previous high was only 32....

iOS I hear is harder than the Android version. 53 - where does that rank you in Game Center? 3 million, 2?

I can't figure out a good strategy, to minimize the oscillation of the bird or to come in a little low before the pipe then flap to get more space between the pipe. I wonder if there is any randomness to falling because sometimes I swear I should have hit a pipe and other times I didn't but hit it.

My daughter introduced me to this game last night. I played it for an hour straight! I started to get the hang of it and scored 124 about 30 minutes in. I haven't beaten that score since...

    • Time to upgrade but ball but oh man!?
      Yeppers, I think this is where Im at now. Just gonna have to adjust to slightly less distance and a slightly lower trajectory, and a firmer feeling golf ball. Too many things suggest I need to be playing a urethane golf ball. 
    • My Swing (coop6)
      @Golfer2223 I do want to fix that look.l, but I never and I mean never hook the ball. I'm more concerned about the transition, I'm completely aware that my arms and hands need to move down together. Atm my upper body spins faster than my arms move out and down. I want to get rid of the hands dropping, just want them to keep up with the body and then pivot it on through p5-p8. I appreciate the information .
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      You use the S&D option of Rule 28 at any time you want. It doesn't matter if you can't see it, can't identify it or have it staring you in the face with your ID in dayglo pink. To use either of the other options you have to be able to identify it.
    • The Most Common Swing Flaw
      I'm sure there will be arguments later but there is one piece of information I think a lot of golfers can benefit from. I hope to save some people from buying the online swing tip scams. The most common flaw I see in swings is rotating the forearms one way or the other. Most people don't realize you don't have to rotate your forearms or hands at all in the golf swing, in fact it's better if you don't. The arms can stay just as square as they are at address. The arms follow the rotation of the shoulders on the plane. The arms slightly trail the body on the through swing, creating some additional lag to hip lag, and then eventually they pass the body much later. The club face can stay as square as it was at impact the whole time, many PGA  pros do this. Hunter Mahan is a good example. The only movement the arms really have to make is an up and down one. There is a popular drill where students are told to pick the club straight up from address, hinge it, and rest it on their right shoulder (for righties), and then turn the shoulders 90 degrees and voila, the top of the backswing. To get to this position people will do all kinds of arm and hand contortions all over the place, which is fine. The only problem is, is on the way down, you don't want to be doing these things, and the law of physics states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so you will likely do going down what you did going up, just in reverse. All you really have to do is rotate your shoulders and let the arms stay connected as they were at address, after all this is why you've spent so much time working on the set up position! The swing is a moving and rotating set up position. Some people actually get to the top perfectly, but then insist on going way beyond parallel, ruining the glorious work! The problem here is, the more your arms lift past your shoulders, the more you have to wait for them to come down, for that huge 1mph arm swing speed boost.  You're of course thinking, why the heck do people do all these things? One reason people do this is because it feels natural, at least that's the reason experienced golfers do it. It feels more repeatable to them, and they like it, it feels good. Power to them. But there are plenty of golfers who do these things that aren't happy with their game, so why do they do it? They do these things because it feels like they can get maximum strength this way. Doing it the efficient way would cost them a lot of power, because their strongest and biggest muscles have not coordinated yet to hit a golf ball. When we do basic things like jumping and lifting, things we've done all our lives, we use the most efficient muscles and most supported ones. But when we have to hit a golf ball, those muscles don't know how to get involved, so we use the smaller, weaker, faster ones, to get the job done with some short term speed. The truth is, we can hit the ball a lot further using the right muscles, but many golfers believe they are hitting it better with whatever move they currently have. They aren't wrong, at the moment they can't hit it with the right muscles, because the right muscles aren't trained. But if they stopped what they are doing and started training the right muscles to support the swing, would they hit it better, faster farther? You bet your ball washer they would. So put down the club, put your arms across your chest like you learned at your very first golf clinic, dig into your hip sockets, and rotate those shoulders. Do away with the crazy arm motions and the bending and unbending at the waist. The 4some behind you will thank you for it.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      Certainly. Only keep a record of pars in my notebook - nothing else, consequently my index could be anywhere between 16 and 36. Aim is to par every hole on the course at some stage.
