Flappy Bird is an addictively brutal, tap-to-play game challenging players to fly a beady-eyed bird through an endless series of Mario-esque pipes without crashing. With one-touch controls, explosively challenging gameplay and retro graphics, it defined the “masocore” game genre. Can you make it through the pipes?
Gameplay: Players tap their screen to make the bird Flap its wings and fly higher. Perched between rows of pipes, time each tap to pass cleanly through the gaps between pipes. Colliding with any pipe immediately ends the run, so razor sharp reflexes and timing are essential. Play across 3 dynamically generated pipe color schemes in both day and night modes.
Scoring: Passing through pipe gaps increments the score. Each pipe cleared earns 1 point, with bonuses for consecutive pipes cleared on a single attempt. Special floating Medals reward massive score boosts if collected. Rack up points and compete on the global online leaderboard. Can you reach #1?
Customization: Unlock a plethora of new bird and pipe styles by reaching certain score milestones. Bird skins include Classic, Beach, Ninja and more while pipe options include Wooden, Crystal and Space themes. Show off unique styles and stand out from the flock of Flappy competitors!
