Flappy Bird - Top 10 Tips, Tricks and Cheats

WP - "Go look in the App Store at how many reviews Flappy Bird has. As of the time of this writing it's approaching 400,000, proof that Flappy Bird is what would happen if drugs were converted into app form. Yes, it's that addicting, because it's insanely frustrating, and it's insanely difficult to get past a score of 5 or even 10, usually. It doesn't have to be, though." (Android, Flappy Bird, iPad, iPhone, Mobile)

WTF?! Why is this article so hot? Didn't this happen the other day?
Shadonic  +   75d ago
popularity man. All i know is if thi game is whats viewed as one of the best of the ios/mobile gaming gen then I should have no issues becoming a success once I release my game. Even one guy from IGN said crap like the creator deserves money. IGN lost all of their respect as game reviewers from me after that.

Why doesn't the developer deserve money?
Shadonic  +   75d ago
@ buff srry about that was getting a bit too heated, The creator deserves some money I guess he got the popularity and his game has become a success and its entertaining people and thats all that matters.

I guess i just got heated from the surprise that something so simple could become such a huge hit even though I've always strived for creating a much more in depth game IDK I'm just extremely surprised that this became the big thing besides the countless other games that would be viewed as having more substance sorry about the outburst.

I think this news story has gone onto google and many people have visited it. Flappy bird is the most popular game so far in 2014! Everyone is addicted to it. I have made a blog about it here - http://www.flappybirdguide....

To be fair, I looked at the title, wondering the same thing. I came to look, so I reckon most people probably did the same as me. Most people are here to explain why this article shouldn't be hot, but can't see the irony that they're keeping it there.

9) How to stop the game from crashing

There's a problem when THAT is one of the tips...
foie  +   75d ago
The worst part of this article is that most of these "Tips, tricks, and cheats" boil down to "Be better".
I actually have no clue about which of them is even a "Cheat". Is simply playing the game considered cheating yourself out of a better existence?
JohnS1313  +   75d ago
There's really no reason to cheat on this game if you even can. Just play it a few minutes. You have to get used to how to tap. That's about it.

this game sucks, all phone games are terrible n boring after an hour
Shadonic  +   75d ago
After actually trying the game I fully understand why people were complaining about the controls it feels as though the hitbox on the pipes are kinda off sometimes though this could just be because of the birds hitbox. The bird also seems to jump up too high sometimes even when I tap incrementally. Either way congrats to creator, I hope that once i release a game it becomes as much of a success as this.

I just downloaded this game and got to 5. I like this kind of game for something you can play when you have a few minutes to kill. I'd never switch from console gaming to games like this though.
kingmushroom  +   75d ago
Same here, my score is 30 lol, its a good game if you got a couple of minutes to kill.
JohnS1313  +   75d ago
I'm just up to 8 now. I don't know if I'll ever get to 30. It's an addicting game though. The best part is it's free. The only problem I've had is a couple times the banner ads on top got in my way and I died. Maybe they should just have those on the bottom where they don't block your view.
Spartan119  +   75d ago
My wife told me download it while I was at work as on some days at work I have alot of time on my hands when im just sitting around doing nothing. At first I couldnt get more than 2 or 3. Its insanely addictive. My top score now is 44. I hope to get above 50 and then Iight stop lol
alejandroelputo  +   75d ago
My score is 205, did it in two days. Yeah I wasted like 5-6 hours on the game.

Wow, there's like 5 Flappy Bird articles with 3 more under review... Wit this one at 1000+ degrees... What the hell n4g?
SirNintend0  +   75d ago
Supposedly the guy writing these gets 20K+ views from N4G on his site because of this game. So something must be up.
SirNintend0  +   75d ago
For the smartass who "disagreed". I actually asked the poster himself if he was hacking or what was the deal.

Ahhh nice to see a story in which all the comments below are not going on about unit's sold and market share. I have simplified my gaming of late been playing sonic on megadrive, so this game begins to appeal.

don't need cheats though.
newflesh  +   75d ago
N4G sold out. Obvious paid article got to 1000+ degrees. What a shame
maniacmayhem  +   75d ago
It's really strange how some games as simple and straight forward as these just instantly take off on tablets/smartphones.

This game is blowing up and see everyone who has a smartphone playing this game.

I tried it myself and could not get past the third pipe. And the graphics seem ripped right out of Super Mario Bros for NES.

Uuuuum, why is the moderation for this particular story so heavy? I got marked for off topic and rather fast...

I'm going to try it out seeing as people are acting like this game is better than sex and all life in general.

"uuuum, why is the moderation for this particular story so heavy? I got marked for off topic and rather fast."

Off topic: They're marking down almost any comment that point out the abnormal heat of this article and how mods/admins can make an article hotter if they wanted. My comment was marked as trolling and it was nowhere near that. If you aren't saying what they want you to say, your comment will be flagged.

On topic: This game is pretty fun and addictive. I play it all day and everyday and absolutely love it. It's one of the best games ever made and I am glad to see this article reach such an abnormally large temperature that came out of nowhere. It deserves all of the positive press it gets. Tell your friends! Tell your family! Flappy Birds deserves to be this year's GOTY.

This game has exactly one gameplay mechanic: tap.

It gives zero f*cks.

It is pixel-perfect in its denial of your progress.

It is maddeningly challenging.

But...it's an iphone game. There is no reason this should be at 1200 degrees.
alejandroelputo  +   75d ago
1200 degrees. What a shit show.

I personally don't care if this gets marked as off topic. The comment of every individual here that mentioned the abnormally high heat for this kind of article is completely legitimate. Normally articles don't get such heat unless they are one talking about a stream for E3, TGS, or GDC and this game is none of those.

The last time this submitter posted pretty much an identical article about this game, Cat herself said the heat for this article was wrong and she fixed it. Now all of a sudden it's higher than the last article was and so many people are having their comments moderated and no explanation is given.

I find it immensely hard to believe that Hava Media is in any way partnered with a wordpress blog whose page is almost barren of content that most here would consider newsworthy, so what the hell is up?
