In Summary,  What you get here is yet another Flappy bird clone. Depending on your stance depends on how you feel about that. At least here you get nice graphics,  and full Miiverse integration.  the addition of stamps is a good one and slightly elevates the game above the “just a cheap cash in clone” category. So in short it’s a reskinned Flappy bird,  Make your own mind up but the online leaderboard is a huge deal and more than warrants the cost.  The actual game however is up to you.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
