Wow, this Canonball is really tough.
I only managed to reach the second level once and my current score is 1655.
A very exhausting game, it requires super reflexes and nerves of steel, which I don't have. ;)
Addictive for sure, but I didn’t really enjoy it.
Playing on hardest level (1. Muy dificil) in menu.

I appreciate the idea and the execution, so don’t get me wrong, but for me Flappy Bird is a sick game and I have no desire to play it and torture myself.
So I'll skip it.

After dozens of attempts in Flappy Bird, I've reached 5 points :oops:

It's bloody frustrating!

First scores.

Pssst: 15350 - Just as good as I remember. I put a lot of hours into this as a kid - can't remember if farming the bugs is the better strat or not... (see rule 2 - no cheese...)
FlappyBird: 21 - I wish you could remap space to something else!!!

Cannonball - 3590
Flappy Bird - 55

Getting some scores in early before the big-hitters arrive and put my efforts to shame!

Flappy Bird is another game that does weird things to your eyes. It's not as bad a Nohzdyve which I had to stop playing as it was making me nauseous. I'm pleased to say that Level 2 isn't any harder, but the abrupt colour change throws off my rhythm every time and I have to work hard to get back into the groove.

Flappy Bird - 63

Improved my score slightly but it's an annoying score as I think Level 3 will start on 64 points!
