Swing Copters Review (Galaxy S4): More Frustrating Than Flappy Bird, But Also a Bit More Fun (Video)
Yes, that time has come! We have played Swing Copters and we’re here with a verdict. As you can see, we managed to score 22 points, obviously off camera and obviously after updating the app. The initial version of Swing Copters was impossible and you were dead in the water before scoring 1 point.
Then the update came and the game became easier. Coming from Dong Nguyen, the creator of Flappy Bird, this game is frustrating and it’s available for free. You can pay 1 dollar to remove the ads and this time the gameplay is vertical, not horizontal. You control a little character with big eyes and a propeller on his head. He will ascend to the top of the screen and all you can do is tap the display to make the character change direction.
The graphics and sound are of the 8 bit kind and overall I’d say this game is harder than Flappy Bird. The problem is that you’ll run into both scafolding and hammers that are moving around and will certainly hit you, as you ascend. Of course, the game is addictive and once you get a big enough score, you can achieve medals and unlock a new suit/helmet for the little guy. It’s a hard game, it’s frustrating, but still it’s slightly different compared to Flappy Bird.
We give it a 5.5 out of 10 and you can download it here.
