While Flappy Bird still hasn’t made its way back to the Play Store, but creator Dong Nguyen has been hard at work on his next game. The new project is called Swing Copters, and it while it shares many of the same elements of Flappy Bird, it actually looks like it’s going to be more challenging, believe it or not.
The game puts you in control of a little man with a helicopter helmet. When the game starts, he begins flying either up and to the right, or up and to the left, and tapping the screen changes direction from left to right and vice versa. The objective is to float up through horizontal gates (similar to the vertical pipes in Flappy Bird) all while avoiding the swinging hammers attached to the bottoms of the gates. So instead of having only one obstacle to avoid, there are actually two pieces that will cause a game over.
Swing Copters definitely looks challenging while retaining the charm of Flappy Bird. If you liked the original, you’ll definitely enjoy Swing Copters, which is set for release on the 21st on the App Store and Play Store. If you didn’t care for Flappy Bird, this game probably isn’t going to change your mind. But hey, like Flappy Bird, it’ll be free and ad-supported, so you can at least test it out later this week.
