La pesadilla no se va: un tercio de los nuevos lanzamientos en la App Store son clones de Flappy Bird
Flappy Bird did not succeed because of its graphic quality, nor because of the attitude of its developer. None of that. It was an avalanche due to its playability and above all its difficulty, which caused an almost unhealthy addiction in millions of people. Now it’s another game that wants to achieve the same thing: Snow Roll .
The combination is again the same as Flappy Bird or Swing Copters: you learn to play in seconds, but it is extremely difficult to learn to master the game. In this case our mission is to help a penguin on a snowball to dodge all obstacles that he finds on his way. Without braking, of course.
After trying it for a while I have to say that I had to quit out of frustration, as I did with Flappy Birds. The snowball moves very fast, and to make things difficult all the points we’ve hit become obstacles for future games on a temporary basis.
The game is free, but has its business idea in integrated shopping like almost all games now
As with all games free-to-play , there are game options that can only be accessed by achieving certain achievements (in this case coins) or by paying 3.99 euros to unlock everything. We can, for example, customize the snowball we roll around on and turn it into a watermelon or a world map.
Will it succeed? I don’t know. But I’ve already forced myself not to use it for a reasonable time for the sake of my temper. You can find it in the App Store, optimized for the screens of all iOS terminals.
