Smash Flappy Birds Once and for All with Crushy Birds
While by now the majority of us have already kicked our Flappy Bird addiction, many still harbor some animosity towards the curiously addictive game for taking so much time from us. Luckily, there are a few ways to get back at that clumsy bird.
A few days ago, we talked about FlapShot by XDA Recognized Developer EatHeat, where instead of playing as the bird, your job is to shoot the bird. Now, there’s a new way to take out your aggression thanks to Crushy Birds by XDA Forum Member benjamin94.
Crushy Birds is a rather satisfying game. Rather than playing the part of a bird trying to fly through pipes, you are the pipe. And instead of letting the birds through, your job is to smash as many birds as possible. To crush the birds, simply tap on the screen. And to add a bit of added difficulty, there are also “Super Birds,” which require 3 taps to kill. The game features leaderboards (both locally and through Google Play Services) so that you can show your friends who’s boss.
Make your way over to the game thread to get started.
