Clicking to control feels very odd. Level looks cool with all the movement.

Thank you for feedback! The controls were made for touch screens, that's why it feels odd when played with a mouse. We just decided to put an exe here so people can try it out without installing the apk.

The concept for challenge is pretty interesting. The UI for me just feels crowded.

Thanks! We will take some time to think about the UI improvements.

By the way, the game is released! There're many more features, compared to the old version uploaded here.

Idea looks fine, I'm unsure if scaling works properly but might be just Windows version issue.

Thank you! We've made the Windows version just so people can try it out faster, so it's not that optimized.
The Android version was released a couple of days ago on Google Play, here's the link if you'd like to play it: https://t.co/JoBm1PKENc

Everything is well done! Maybe you could add different power ups, for example slow down the pipes for a peroid of time or make the player faster. But all in all, really well done!

Thanks! Glad you liked it! We've been thinking about adding power ups in future updates, so we might add them in future.

I really enjoy these small games, as they are a great way to pass the time, but I do have one thing I always wish they would do; put more effort into the graphics. While I understand that's part of the charm, but seeing every single one of these small games like this using the same art style as the last one, it get's tiresome. I honestly would never have picked this game out of the crowd because of that.

However, the change of dashing under tunnels to collect coins rather than flapping a bird through tunnels to collect coins was enough of a change to be slightly different, and caught my interest. My kids also love it, so there's a plus.

I liked the premise, the controls were okay, better than a swipe to move. I loved that the way you teach the movement, by having the player move on spot, and still being safe. The graphics were instantly recognizable, because of Flappy bird, but I think this plays a disservice to the game, as it just looks like a flappy bird clone, until you actually download and play it, not good.

Thanks for reviewing the game. We agree with you about the graphics, but sadly we don't have other ideas for it, so we will have to keep the current theme until a new idea arises.
By the way, we would be very glad if you could leave a comment on the Play Market :)

Interesting game that will not take much time. Maybe I'll play it sometimes.
Looks good, simple mechanics. I do not think that it would be possible to add something else. :)

Yes, this game can be very fun. I've enjoyed playing it, it makes a great casual game for someone not looking for depth. The design is overly simple, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I would have liked to see a bit more originality in the character desing and in the selection of colors used, other than that I think it serves its purpose.

The 'Flappy-Bird-like' design almost made me to skip the game, i thought "okay, another clone", but i gave it a chance, thank god i did it. Because mechanics is actually so awesome, try to emphasize on it a bit harder.

It's like flappy bird, but better. Maybe you can animate the surroundings in a more original way that will stick out to players.

A nice, low effort game.
The lerping camera is nice, but when you move fast, it's left drifting behind, making it increasingly hard to see what's before the player, effectively punishing quick and skillful play. I suggest increasing the lerp rate and offsetting the camera to the right, so the player can plan what to do in advance while seeing more of what's next.
The Invisible Man skin is funny but bullshit.
The lootbox opening is super unsatisfying, I'd even animate it for you myself.
I liked how there's some room to move in the beggining to tes out controls and at the same time teach the player that right is the direction to go, BUT I hated that the first few pipes are always the same, and have a very disruptive pattern, making me wait until the game gets interesting. I'd make them randomized too once the player exceeds a hi-score of 30 or something.
Overally for a game this simple, you managed to fuck up very little, good work.

The graphics and even some of the sounds I noticed in the video were blatant rip-offs of Flappy Bird. However, the game looks pretty fun, but I can't make an accurate judgement because the game won't load on my Galaxy S7.
