    This represents the new generation of "bare bones" video games. Only, instead of giving you the bones, they give you a single amino acid chain and challenge you to work it like an amoeba. It's genius.

    Catatonic. It is functionally catatonic.
  5. How can you say catatonic when these games are amazingly difficult. Catatonic can describe Zynga games.

    Tapping a screen to make a sprite accelerate upwards (Flappy Bird) or accelerate laterally (Swing Copters) is catatonic because it requires no thought, no planning, and no strategy.
  7. You make it sound easy. It is anything but. The timing has to be precise and the margin of error is 0. And when ending up at low altitude it sometimes is impossible to recover (fingers not fast enough). The game might not appeal to geniuses but it is definitely a challenge. To be successful, one would need a skill set similar to one needed for Street Fighter- reaction time, timing, and button mashing.
  8. Flappy Birds was a great game. This game sucks and is terrible. I hate it when sequences are never as good as the first or at least don't come close.
