Think you're good at 'Flappy Bird'? You're not. This guy is good. And look what happens when you reach level 999!
Ok, so it's not actually real but it is quite funny.
It is the creation of the chaps at pipocaVFX, more of their Mario themed work can be found here.
1. Learn to relax.
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.
2. Really, learn to relax.
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.
3. Take breaks.
Seriously, this game is awful. You're life will be better the less you play it.
4. Press Lightly
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.
6. Win medals.
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.
7. Get Naked
Take off any case or screen cover on your phone. This ensures the screen is as sensitive as possible.
8. Use a big screen.
The iPhone has a small screen and your finger covers up more of the screen compared to a big phone or tablet.
9. Give up.
You will never win.
