To play 'Flappy Bird' is to hate 'Flappy Bird', and wish to see it destroyed forever.
Before you do, however, it's worth hacking the easily cracked little game, so you can post a high score of about 4 billion and annoy your friends.
If you have a rooted or hacked iPhone, doing this is pretty easy. But doing it without hacking your phone isn't so straightforward.
But it is possible. So here's how to do it.
This game is incredibly buggy and annoying.
Often you'll fail even when you don't actually touch a pipe.
This is because the game doesn't work very well.
Accept it. Embrace it.
Life is confusing.
Like most arcade games Flappy Bird is easier if you clear your mind, don't think too hard and try to go with the flow.
If you can play with your mind totally relaxed, you'll do better.
Seriously, this game is awful.
You're life will be better the less you play it.
Try to keep your finger nimble.
Light taps, quick fingers, fast movements are the key.
Try to rise up into the passes rather than dipping down - it's easier to control.
Use a metronome in your head to try and stay in sync.
So 10 points gets you bronze, 20 and 30 win silver and gold respectively.
If you win a medal you win, well, nothing. But GOOD JOB.
Take off any case or screen cover on your phone.
This ensures the screen is as sensitive as possible.
The iPhone has a small screen and your finger covers up more of the screen compared to a big phone or tablet.
You will never win.
