Swing Copter now available to induce rage for Android and iOS users

teaser video of Swing Copters recently, and it looks like our assessment of the gameplay was spot on. You are a weird little dude with a copter hat. Tapping initially will start your ascent, and as the character goes up, it will quickly swing to one side. Tap again to change directions, and attempt to stay between the swinging hammers. If the character hits anything at all, you die and the game starts over.
Flappy Bird was difficult, but this game is even worse. It is basically vertical Flappy Bird, but the copter moves faster than the bird, and of course there are the swinging hammers to deal with. The Flappy Bird pipes never moved, which left a tiny bit more on your margin of error. There is no room to make a mistake with Swing Copters. In the minor testing before writing this article, my top score was zero after about five attempts, then the game was uninstalled.
That said, if you were the kind of masochist who enjoyed Flappy Bird, you'll likely find enjoyment in Swing Copters as well. Right now, Swing Copters is free to download on both Android and iOS, but for some reason there is no in-app purchase to remove ads in the Android version. On iOS, if you want to kill the ads, it will cost your $1.29.

Had a top score of 9 after about 30 minutes of playing. For some reason the speed of the helicopter fluctuates randomly between attempts.

We release Penguin Dodge one day before Swing Copters. It has similar concept (vertical dodging game with gravity) but much natural control (tap and tilt to dodge). Also it unlock new penguins. If you are frustrated with Swing Copter this could be a relief :-) Search Penguin Dodge on App store.
