Catapult Your Cows with CowCopter
Ever heard the expression “when pigs fly?” Well that still hasn’t happened, but those wishing to practice aviation with other barnyard animals may now have their fill. XDA Forum Member BubbleCow brings us CowCopter, a side-scroller game similar in game play to the popular helicopter games of yesteryear.
The controls are simple. You simply tap and hold the screen to propel the barrelling bovine upwards. Your goal is to collect stars while avoiding obstacles, which increase in difficulty quickly along with level.
Alas, you cannot keep flying forever. As with real life rocket cows, there is a finite supply of fuel. After all, you don’t want to break the game’s immense realism by offering an unlimited fuel supply. Luckily, collecting stars recharges your fuel and regenerates your health if you don’t have the best luck in avoiding the flying obstacles. You are also rewarded for doing well because it increases your score, which in turn allows for interesting power-ups and features.
Head over to the game thread to get started.
