Who said Flappy?

Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen is determined to feed us with new material “so people can forget about Flappy Bird for a while.” (his own words). However, there a few chances we forget about it by playing its new game Swing Copters since gameplay's suspiciously similar.

In .GEARS Studio's Swing Copters you must guide a guy wearing a propeller copter hat upwards while avoiding touching beams and being hit by swinging hammers. Tap to change the guy's direction left/right. Be fast: the winds will be pushing you rudely towards the screen sizes.

Just like Flappy Bird, Swing Copters is an endless game: the goal is to get as far as you can. You’ll be able to submit your personal records to online leaderboards and challenge your friends to beat them.

Now there's another incentive to get further in the game, besides bragging off: if you get 4 medals new characters will be unlocked. Not a slam dunk. Swing Copters is way more difficult than Flappy Bird. First, because in the prequel, obstacles (green pipes) were static and in Swing Copters you have both beams and swinging hammers. Second, because in Flappy you had to deal with "predictable" gravity forces and in Swing Copters you are propelled by less formulaic hurricane-force winds.

Such level of difficulty make us wonder if .GEARS Studio hasn't already crossed the fine line between challengingness and un-playability.

Graphics are also similar to Flappy Bird: pixelated retro graphics, which is a formula that's working seamlessly on mobile platforms.
