A Bird’s Journey: Windows 8 Game App Similar to Flappy Bird

A Bird’s Journey is a free app designed for Windows 8 and 8.1 which allows you to play as a bird who has to fly over obstacles in a hope to achieve a high score. The app is very well designed, and it seems as if the world in which you have to control the bird is made out of paper cut outs. The bird has a limited health, and with each flap that it takes, its health gets reduced a bit. The aim of the game is to control the bird in such a manner that its health doesn’t run out and you get a high score. The bird’s health also recharges with time, and you can see the health meter towards the left side of the screen. The best strategy is to use minimum number of flaps to control the bird, so its health does not diminish quickly.

A Bird’s Journey is available for free from the Windows App Store.

A Bird's Journey Gameplay

In the gameplay screen that is shown above, you will be able to see your health meter at the left side of the screen. The controls of the game are similar to the FlappyBird game, where you have to click on the screen to keep the bird airborne and avoid it from falling into the sea or hitting the obstacles. As you flap the bird to keep it airborne, you will be able to see that the health of the bird decreases with each flap that it makes, but it also recharges when the bird is not flapping. The aim of the game is to find the perfect balance between keeping the bird airborne and not using too many flaps in order to make the health of the bird last longer, and allow it to go a longer distance. You can see your score at the top of the screen. Once the game is over, you will be able to see the various achievements that you have unlocked.
