The game was named as the most downloaded app on the App Store and its Android version released to the Google Play store on 30th January 2014. Words around have it that the game is difficult and almost impossible to score but the developer says that though difficult, the game was not fashioned to be impossible. From his view, the game is pure, intensely difficult and amazingly fun to play.
How it works
The bird flies smoothly to the right through an obstacle path of green pipes. The player is then required to control the movement of the bird as he or she moves it through the series of pipes while avoiding any contact. Unfortunately, the ‘flappy bird’ does not fly very well and it is upon the player to ensure its movement remains steady.
The player navigates the bird by tapping on his device which makes it flap its wings. Players also have the task to ensure that the bird does not get into contact with the green pipes. Any contact between the bird and the pipe brings you to the end of the game and you’ll have to start over. For each set of pipes a player successfully passes, he or she earns one point. The game has four levels whereby the proceeding level is more challenging than the first. In ascending order the levels are bronze, silver, gold and platinum.
