Are you ready for something new and fresh from the creator of Flappy Bird? Sure you are, you were probably sad to see the original Flappy bird leave the Play Store. Perhaps you were delighted to hear the news of the Amazon Fire TV version of the game which could technically be considered Flappy Bird in a reborn state, called Flappy Birds Family, but this other game is something completely new. In a sense. Perhaps it’s better described as an entirely different game, but not so much new. At least not in the sense that it offers a brand new gameplay type. The game is called Swing Copters, and you can think of it like Flappy Bird but instead of playing the bird while trying to work yourself forward as far as you can, you control a little copter/live being type thing(complete with eyes, perhaps it’s just some mythical creature that is wearing a fully functioning propeller hat)that is trying to avoid dangerous looking hammers that are swinging at you with malicious intent.
OK, so I tried to make the game sound more exciting than it might be, but all the same whether you find it exciting or not, it will still be just as addictive as the last game, we all know that to be true. The question is, will it become so popular and “addictive” that creator Dong Nguyen pulls it from the store only after a month or two of great success? We’ll just have to wait and see. You can view the video below of how you’ll be wasting away a good chunk of your time once the game hits the public, thanks to the upload footage from Touch Arcade playing the game.
There you have it, you can see what Swing Copters is like in action. It looks just like Flappy Bird, graphics and all, just with different obstacles(this time they MOVE!)and a new playable character. Since this is Touch Arcade, we can readily presume that it will certainly hit iOS as they do coverage on iOS gaming, although there was no mention of actual platform support and that is completely a guess. Will it come to the Play Store too? More than likely yes, but for some of us, we hope not. There’s already enough of these types of games. Once the game does hit, it’ll be free and ad supported with the option of removing ads through a one time IAP of $0.99, and we’ll go ahead and assume this is the same for all supported platforms if it is more than just iOS.
