This is one of those weird games that when you see it, you think "looks silly, no interest". Trust me, I know the feeling.

The levels of Birdy Bounce are generated by an intelligent level randomization algorithm which provides a new experience every time you start playing while avoiding impossible situations to keep the fun for a long time.
Version 1.5 was released today and it included better pause support, scoreboard, and some general fixes. It currently has a 4.5 out of 5 ranking and I implore you to try it as it's the perfect 60 second game killer.
(BTW, my high score is 16,469, which I'm guessing many of you could crush)
