Flappy Bird developer returns with new frustrating game, Swing Copters

Swing Copters

Just when you thoughts the world was just starting to get over Flappy Bird, the developer has returned with yet another title, which has just launched on both iOS and Android. Dong Nguyen's latest hit, titled Swing Copters, puts players in charge of controlling a dude with a copter helmet. The object of the game is to avoid the swings and progress as far as possible, much like its predecessor.

We'll not spoil the gameplay for you, so be sure to head into the App Store and download the title. Is it addictive? Absolutely, we've tried it already. Will it be as successful as Flappy Bird? We'll have to see, but we bet Nguyen sure hopes so. Let us know how you get on in the comments.

Flappy Bird developer returns with new frustrating game, Swing Copters


I wondered the exact same thing. The App Store description has the directions, which is an odd place to find them.

- Tap to change direction.
- Get 4 medals to unlock more characters.

My gripe about the app store... this app is completely unsearchable. Typing in the game name or the name of the author doesn't yield this game (at least as of this writing). Frustrating.

By the way are Stephen C F Burt?
Because your profile picture remind me of my teacher hehe

I also cannot see anyone else. This game is really very very very hard! My high score is 1. I do not think that anyone can go beyond 10 in this game!!

I thought that of flappy birds then I saw scores of 7, 12, 20 and even 50 something. Not human! I mean how!?!? Hmmmm maybe a clever app deployed by the NSA to distinguish humans from aliens...

Isn't this the same guy that brought out a dog and pony show about pulling Flappy Bird because it was too hard and addicting and he was worried about wasting people's lives away? And we now have a more challenging and potentially more addicting game?
