Description: Spread your arms, and flap like you mean it to take to the sky in Flappy Arms, the premier VR bird simulator! Flap your way through a procedurally generated city of endless obstacles while flying past sky scrapers and fluffy clouds. Survive the ever increasing difficulty and find alternate routes for bonus points to try and top your high score. An online leaderboard lets you compete with players around the world to see who has the flappiest arms. The local leaderboard, wacky arm flailing action, and third person spectator mode make Flappy Arms a fantastic VR party game! Flappy Arms includes options to enable a “comfort cage” and floor marker to make the experience of flying more comfortable for those who are prone to motion sickness.

Review: There is a good reason why so many Flappy Bird games made for VR fail miserably and that is down to the game being far too nauseating to play. Sadly ‘Flappy Arms’ is just that, so unless you have your VR legs you can’t even consider playing this. But the game itself isn’t terrible and provided you can handle the nausea there is some fun to be had here. Its simple to play (you just FLAP!) and you can share that game between friends to eke out a little bit more longevity. So for £1.69, I do recommend it, but do be aware that this game is going to make most people feel very ill indeed.
