Bam – and it says “Game Over”. In “Flappy Bird” which is faster than one would like. Here, the game sounds so simple: The goal is to safely maneuver a chunky bird through an obstacle course made of green tubes. This is done by tapping the screen. With each clue the bird gains a little altitude, before it slides down again. The player has to estimate it, when and how often he has to tap the screen. Otherwise there is the infamous “Game Over” screen.

Ad-free version in the pipeline

One end of the success is not yet in sight. Soon there will be a paid version of the game, without disturbing ads. The game itself does not want to Dong Nguyen but change.
