If you still can’t get enough of Flappy Bird clones, then here’s another one for ya.
When it comes to games that look and feel like Flappy Bird… Well, you got a lot of choice. When you look back at the game, it is actually quite unbelievable what that game did. It did not only make one guy very rich (by mistake?), but it also gave life to a new genre, we’ve called the ‘one button gameplay’ here on Android Rundown. If you can’t can enough of those games, here is another one.
This Flappy Bird clone is called Circle and is made by the same guys who made Escape Bird. In this game, you control a circle (hence the name of the game). By tapping on the screen, the circle goes up – just like any other flappy clone. But there is something completely different about this game: you must avoid touching the line on screen in order to progress through the stage. If you hit the line, it is game over.
Maybe you recognize the formula of an old TV show where contestants had to hold a magnify glass (without the actual glass) and guide it through an obstacle course without touching the rails. It was nerve wrecking just looking at it. Well, this game borrows some of that formula, but instead of being nerve wrecking, I felt quite zen playing this.
And God knows how many times a started a new game. Too many times, at least more than I would and should admit. This game has some a nice use of colors going for it and the fact that the circle always stays within reach, is kind of soothing. It helped me relax after a busy day of work and I think that is the best compliment a video game can get.
So in a way, and just the other one-button-gameplay games I’ve played, this title manages to give his own twist to a dying gameplay formula, by digging up the past and using warm color schemes. So if you can’t get enough of Flappy clones or are in the market for a new one, know that this game will help you relax – even after a dozen of continues.
