Flappy Bird – Pipes

Reading Time: 8 minutes
In the previous lectures of our Flappy Bird tutorial we have added the background, the bird, the gravity and the touch function. So our bird can fall down, and fly back to the air.

In this lessons we are going to add the pipes, what we have keep off from the way of our bird. We will have a top and a bottom pipe. Between them there is a gap, where the bird has to fly. Of course horizontally there is also a distance.

The closer are the pipes to each other the harder going to be our Flappy Bird game.

So how do we get a tap to be detected? Actually it is very straightforward.

Flappy Bird is a mobile game developed by Vietnamese video game artist and programmer Dong Nguyen, under his game development company dotGears.
