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.

That's better than what I had on my first day, I couldn't get more than one. Now my high score is 39!

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.

Break through last night.  53!

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...

    • It sounds like you may just be overcompensating for the draw in your set-up. You know your stock shot is a draw, so you aim right; instead of making your normal swing, you intentionally play for a draw, and it curves even further to the left than normal.
    • You are a tad close. I would say the ball is about a ball width too close. When you move the ball away don't adjust to that by bending over at the waist more.  Even still, the ball looks to be in the middle of your stance. That is not a good ball placement for a 6 iron. I would say it's two ball widths to far back. Hover your mouse icon over the text A4 . 
    • Sorry we'll miss you, @Big C.  If this one is remotely successful, I'll try to see to it that one happens in winter (organizing it myself if I need to), and hopefully you can join us then. 
    • I do not like hot temperatures... at all.  Being from the northeast, if it got above 90 degrees, you'd find me stationed in front of the nearest window air conditioner.  Then I moved south and I quickly realized that if I took that mentality, I wouldn't do anything for 2/3 of the year.  

      Last September, I played a round during a weekday at a local course in 98 degree temperatures.  As I usually do, I packed 2 frozen waters, 2 unfrozen waters and 2 sports drinks.  I had learned earlier in the year that I need 128 ounces of fluids, at a minimum, during rounds in warm weather.  I almost never walk (puts too much strain on my knees throughout a round and I can't move the next day), and that day was no different.  I took a cart and found shade as much as possible.  

      I had been drinking more water than normal that day.  All 4 waters and the sports drinks were gone by the 14th hole.  No cart girl on the course that day.  I started looking for a water cooler on the 16th hole because I was starting to feel a little weak.  The only place I had seen to get water was at the comfort station between the 11th and 12th holes, but it was from a water fountain that had brown tinted water, so I figured I'd be find to make it the last 3 holes with no problems.  15 minutes later, after I hit my approach shot on the 17th hole, I told my cart partner that I'd walk up the path in the shade.  Truth was, I was felling really sick at that point and I didn't want to vomit from the cart.

      I sat on a rock off the edge of the path and things got REALLY dark REALLY quick.  Sounds were muffled.  I was dizzy.  

      The guys in the other cart stopped to see if I was okay.  I told them I wasn't and that I felt off.  I knew I needed water.  Luckily, one of them had a bottle of water in his bag and offered it to me.  I slowly sipped it and the other guy went to my cart and grabbed an ice pack out of my cooler so I could put it on my neck.  It took about 5 minutes before I could stand up.  

      After putting out on the 17th, I considered just packing it up and sitting in the cart for the last hole, but I managed to play out the 18th hole.  Got to the clubhouse and drank a few cups of ice water and a Gatorade while trying to cool down.  

      I was out of it for 2-3 days before I started to feel normal again.  I learned my lesson that day and now I will fill up my water bottles even if I feel like I 'have plenty' for the rest of the round.  It was easily one of the scariest moments, health-wise, in my life.  I was extremely lucky to have been playing with others that day otherwise, things could have been real bad.

      Stay hydrated... stay in shade... and if you feel even a LITTLE off, make sure to get yourself somewhere safe and around people in a hurry.  As others have said... it will overtake you in a hurry.

      ETA - By the way... I'm not in 'good shape' by any means, but I'm only mid 30s and not easily 'gassed' or anything.  It just hit me quickly and I wasn't at all prepared for it.  Also, the course I played that day is now closed.  I suppose that's why they didn't have water in the coolers or anything that day.  

      CY
    • I won't walk above 95 deg. and only 9 holes max if above 85 deg. (I carry). Don't get too hung up on being in shape.   Dehydration recovery is also a mini race that your replenishment effort could lose. The 'water-ade' you are drinking may not make it fast enough to all of your body to make up for the sweat loss. So you can actually drink more than you sweat and still dehydrate (and have a bloated belly). Happens to people all the time - "but, but, I drank so much water..!!"  If the de-hy % exceeds certain amount then you could be in trouble. Sometimes you don't feel/recognize till a few hours later. Also, core temps take longer to cool down once heated up.   +1 to the umbrella recommendation. Priceless. Scores? IDK, don't think much difference but haven't paid attention to heat vs. scores before.
