Flop Rocket



    Flop Rocket's review

    Published: 2014-04-29, by .

    If you're going to play a Flappy Bird-like game, make it this one about rockets, caves, and rockworms

    • Surprisingly excellent cartoony graphics
    • Impossible and addictive
    • Top-notch sense of self-aware humor
    • You will explode, again and again and again

    "Can you survive enough to get devoured by a Rockworm?"

    Flappy Bird sucks. There, I said it. Flop Rocket does absolutely everything it needed to do in order not to suck, and yet still fits squarely into the FB-like genre. Massive kudos to devs Butterscotch Shenanigans for pulling it off.

    The concept is the same - pilot your guy through a sidescolling world rife with obstacles that will kill you with one touch: KABLOOEY. Unlike FB, though, controls are made one touch harder, requiring you to control the angle as well as the thrust. The sheer zoom on your spacecraft make it very nearly impossible to get past the very first rock in the infinite cave system.

    However! Graphics are fantastic! Sound is pretty good! Humor is through the roof! And if you DO manage to snag enough stray space-change, you just might be able to afford precious, precious upgrades to heighten your futile experience.

    Folks, Flop Rocket is the cream of the Flappy Bird crop.

    Pilot your Flop Rocket through a cave filled with stalactites, dangerous creatures, and other space-time anomalies as you try to prevent an underfunded space program from going bust. Why is your space program housed in a cave? GOOD QUESTION. Can you defy all odds and make it to space? BETTER QUESTION!
