Swing Copters

Swing Copters perfectly adheres to the old adage, 'easy to learn, but difficult to master.' Playing Swing Copters is as easy as tapping the screen of your phone or tablet, but if you actually want to pass through the swinging hammers of doom, then you are going to have to learn a few techniques, such as when to tap, when not to tap, and most importantly, how many times to tap. The premise is simple and it involves a tiny brown creature with prodigiously big eyes that just so happens to have a propeller beanie placed on his head. He sores through the clouds in a zig-zag fashion, and as the player, you have to tap the screen to keep this cute little creature away from the borders of the screen as well as the numerous swinging hammers. Tap too fast and you will lose control of the little fella. Tap too slow and you will not be able to recover in time.
There is definitely a bit of strategy involved, and similar to Flappy Bird, it can become quite frustrating if you take it too seriously and forget that the whole idea is to have fun. Actually, this is the word I would use to describe Swing Copters: fun. There is something inherently fun about this, and it is definitely the perfect way to tap all of your worriers away. :)

Swing Copters is currently available for download on the Google Play Store.
