I hesitate to interrupt anyone playing it, but, did anyone pick this up? The pipes will be dreadfully familiar to anyone who's played a 2D Mario game...

I played it on a friend's phone and iPad and it's actually a fairly decent minigame, akin to the sort you'd unlock in the WarioWare games.

It's like the helicopter game but with a lot more consistency and a less unfair obstacle generation system.

One of my gripes with it, which stopped me from playing it more than a few times after I got a high score of around 120 or so, was that the difficulty, unlike the WarioWare minigames I so love (Paper Plane!), stays constant. So it's fairly mundane and ends up being more a test of perseverance than anything else. Though I was told this is also one of its strengths: if you mess up it's your own fault, not because the game just got more difficult.

Of course, all the above may have been a mere coincidence over anything else...

It was pulled from the Apple Store/Google Play by the dev, wasn't it?

Yes! There's been a big hoo-ha about it. Phones with the original game on them have been auctioned for what sounds like ridiculous amounts of money. It's all gone a little bit south. Shocked

The fact people are paying through the roof for phones with a cheaply made Helicopter clone on it is mind-boggling.

That fact kind of annoyed me in a certain way.
It's like the bloke who developed Flappy Birds nicked the pipes from Mario.

It is suspiciously like they stole them from Mario but I'm sure it's just coincidence.

Yeah... But Mario is very popular, and also I read somewhere that the bird seems to resemble Cheep-Cheeps or something like that...
The cheep-cheep part is likely coincidence, but I don't think the same as for the Pipes.
