Vector Bird - Flappy Bird with a twist

Hi all,

My friend Zein and I have just released a game called Vector Bird. We know. It looks (and plays) like a Flappy Bird clone (with Tron-Style!). And don't we have a lot of those already?

However, we have built in the ULTIMATE SCORE Game Center leaderboard. Basically that means:
1. Play an unlimited number of "normal games"
2. Play a little more, just to make sure you're good enough
3. Start your ONE AND ONLY try at a Game Center ULTIMATE SCORE...

You can continue playing the normal game afterwards of course, but for the Ultimate Score, each player in the world gets only ONE try. Which you can show off afterwards of course

Works on iPad and iPhone
AppStore-Link: https://itunes.apple.com/app/vector-bird/id823040124?mt=8&uo=4

Share your score with us! My highscore is 65

Cheers,
Gihad

Game Impressions

Not bad. The most stylish Flappy Bird until now. Way faster but even easier than the original. There is no flap sound (but acceptable bg music) and Game Center doesn't work here. Small ad banner at the bottom here on iPad Air (in game over screen only) killed by Weblock.

This is good but really needs a flap sound.

The best copy of Flappy Bird i've played...and I can say, I tried them all. Somehow different, but in a good way. Nice graphics and fitting background music. I made 67

Hmmm.
Interesting comments.

The hitbox is very bad in this.
Personally, I think it isn't even an average flap alike.

Agreed. Average at best.

Thanks for the feedback (both constructive and non-constructive). What exactly is bad about the hitbox? I've personally developed it and it's adjusted to fit the sprites perfectly.

If you go to the general game discussions forum there will be a thread called game of the week where forum members can vote for their favorite game of the week; I do t think devs can vote for their own though.
