The description of Flappy Bird
Flappy Bird is an arcade game where you control a likeable bird that has to fly through many obstacles all made up of pipes.
The mechanics are very simple: you have to tap the screen so that the bird flaps its wings, trying to keep a steady rhythm in order to pass through the pipes scattered through its path. It won't be at all easy to do.
It will be a challenge to get more than five points (which means flying through five pipes), as it's really difficult to maintain a steady flapping rhythm. In fact, you will have to practice a lot before you start doing well and the game stops being so frustrating.
Each time you crash and start over, you will notice slight differences that make the game more interesting. You will play in different scenes, at different times (during the day or at night) and with differently colored birds.
Flappy Bird is an arcade game with very simple mechanics that presents a very difficult challenge. This is precisely why it's so successful, because it sucks you in with just the right amount of difficulty and makes you want to keep trying it one more time.
