Flappy Bird Mobile Game

First came Angry Birds followed closely by Candy Crush Saga and now there is Flappy Bird; games for your cell phone that you just cant put down.

Flappy Bird really does not have a lot going for it, Poor Graphics, repetitive game play and it is very difficult to get into a playing rhythm.

The game play is simple just keep tapping the screen to keep the bird in the air and lead it through a slalom of pipes.

Millions of cell phone users world wide are downloading the app and getting increasingly frustrated as they struggle to keep Flappy Bird in the air and beat their high Score.

Flappy birds is available to download and play on most smartphones and it is free which is about the best price around for any game, especially as you have unlimited game play.

How to Play Flappy Bird

The game is simple to play but difficult to master, just tap the screen and steer the bird through the gaps in the pipes.

Sounds simple enough but the game takes hours and hours of practice before you begin to even approach a respectable score.

It is frustrating, it makes you angry and it makes you lose all track of time, Oh! did I tell you how addictive that the game is.

Some players have been so affected by Flappy Birds that they have thrown their phones down in disgust and broken them.

Flappy Bird is fun for all ages and it is good hand eye coordination training.

Flappy Bird Cheats

The object of the game is to get the highest score that you can with unlimited lives you can try it as often as you have time to play the game.

At the moment there is only one way to cheat at the game and get a good high score and that is to get a friend who is really good at the game to play it on your phone and get that high score for you.

Practice,practice and more practice is the only way that you will get ahead in Flappy Bird and you will soon notice your average score increasing.

Flappy Bird High Score

As you can see after three solid days playing I have only managed a high score of 35.

More About Flappy Bird

Flappy Bird is such a simple idea with basic graphics and simple game play but it is difficult to master and build up a decent score but it is fast becoming one of the most downloaded games ever.

The game isn't very fast but it is really tricky and difficult to master. My children love it and I am not even playing in the same ball park as them when it comes to scores.

Suitable for all of the family including my 3 years old son who loves watching all of us playing and likes to put you off by tapping the screen at inappropriate moments.

My family hardly talk anymore all of us hunched over our cell phones playing Flappy Bird the only sounds are moans and groans when the poor bird crashes to the ground or the screams of pleasure when a new high score has been achieved.

How do you rate Flappy Bird

4.5 out of 5 stars from 2 ratings of Flappy Bird

Flappy Bird Rating

The graphics are quite poor and the game play is quite simple but the game really is addictive and fun to play for me this game gets a four star rating out of five simply because it really is a lot of fun to play.

Iron Pants

Iron Pants is similar to Flappy Bird but is a lot more difficult to control.

Iron Pants

If you are looking for an alternative to Flappy Bird you can also download Iron Pants which is almost similar in the idea but instead of tapping the screen to move your character you move the character up and down with your finger on the screen.

it is faster game play but most people who have played the game find it more difficult to attain a high score.

I have played both Flappy Bird and Iron Pants and in my opinion Flappy bird is simply better and more addictive.

Both games are free to download and work on most smart phones so even if you download them and don't like them you will have lost nothing but a few moments of your time.

      I found Farmville to be addictive. But more so than these types are the MMORPGs I play and write about. I once had a FB account with 800 FarmvillERS!

      I am sure my grandkids have heard of this game. I'm not a gamer, but I'm sure this may be the next app interest for many. Good information.
