Can't. Stop. Playing. Doesn't look like much, but once you start...

Help... me...

Hahahaha, I'm the same way. What's your high score?
post #3 of 39

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?

post #12 of 39

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...
post #15 of 39

By far the best strategy on this game!
