Mobile Game Review: Flappy Bird


Flappy

So if you have lived under a rock for the past few weeks, there is a mobile game that is sweeping the world. On the outside, it looks like a mobile version of a Super Mario game. But it’s really the Regina George of mobile gaming. So evil takes game form in Flappy Bird.

This game has a very simple concept- You tap the bird and try to make it in-between the green tunnels (hence where the Mario feel comes from. It doesn’t help that the bird looks like a fish from Mario as well). The only problem is that you have to clear the hole PERFECTLY. If you are too high or too short, then your life is over and you might as well just live in a box outside a 7-Eleven.

This game is kinda like attempting to lick your elbow. You know that you are unable to successfully do it but you just have to try because of the feeling of being able to say “hey, I licked my elbow” (which is a realistically stupid achievement and if that’s your life goal, you should really reconsider your life choices).

Now I downloaded this game and played for a good 5-10 minutes before I wanted to throw my phone. I managed to get a score of 3…okay, it was 2….before I realized that this game was a lost caused and I was better off donating my time to something more productive and less likely to cause me emotional and mental torture (hint: you’re reading it now).

Overall, this game is a game that teaches a valuable life lessons: You can only succeed in life if you are perfect, Angry Birds really isn’t that difficult, the only way to learn how to do things is by trial and error (with the error being death), and the most important one- Bird games are the invention of the devil.

I don’t recommend this game unless you want to make your friend’s life a living hell and have a good laugh as they flip out
