1. Keep Your Eyes Peeled
Much like the protagonist of Swing Copters, it is important to keep your eyes open really wide while playing to maximize your chances of effectively passing each pair of hammers and thus gaining a point. Sure, not everyone has prodigiously big eyes, so just try to stay focused on the action, without letting anything distract you.
2. Tap With A Purpose
Your very first experience with Swing Copters will have you tapping your screen erratically. Stop. Restart. Every tap must matter. Remember that incongruous taps will never amount to anything, except frustration. Get a feel for the game. The little brown creature has a tendency to fly in a zig-zag pattern. Do not worry about the swinging hammers. Just try to keep the little fella flying straight up. Eventually, you will get into the swing of things.
3. Swing Widely
But not too widely. Learning when not to tap is just as important as actually tapping. Keeping the big-eyed fella in a straight line is a challenge all unto itself, but the position of the hammers and that of the beams from which they swing will constantly force you to make some intrepid manoeuvres. Sooner or later you will have to give him some leeway to go either left and right and avoid the incoming obstacles. This technique is the hardest to learn, but not impossible.
4. Take A break
Swing Copters was designed to be played in short bursts. If you feel tired or impatient, it is recommended to simply stop playing. Take a break and return when your are feeling better.
5. Have Fun
The ultimate goal of Swing Copers isn't so much as to have a high-score as it is to have fun. If you are not having any fun, then it is not worth playing it. Just embrace the game for what it is: a cute little mobile game meant to make you forget about your daily stress. Once you understand this, then will be tapping away with a smile on your face. :)
