Someone Made A Miley Cyrus Version of "Flappy Bird"

Numerous clones have appeared in the absence of Flappy Bird, some better than others. With Flying Cyrus, the developer(s) at Talo combined two of our loves. There's Flappy Bird, naturally, and then the master of twerking, pop superstar Miley Cyrus. Well, part of her, anyway. The goal is to guide Miley's head past wrecking balls and sledgehammers for a high score. Getting past three is hard by itself, but to add further distraction, Talo gave Cyrus a long tongue that is quite hypnotizing; it doesn't help that Flying Cyrus is significantly tougher than Flappy Bird.

Don't worry if you can't make it past the first wrecking ball. These Flying Cyrus tips will set you on the path to high score superstardom.

Use short and measured taps

Quick taps give you the chance to get into a rhythm while at the same time avoiding those dreaded wrecking balls. Ideally, you should only tap one-to-two times to clear one.

Check those corners

Tapping too soon will definitely result in Miley Cyrus hitting a wrecking ball or sledgehammer, spelling certain doom. Make sure your taps give you enough space to clear these objects completely.

Pick your blinking times carefully

The less you blink in Flying Cyrus, the better off you'll be. Make sure you blink plenty of times before starting a round, and go with quick blinks between pipes to keep your eyes moistened yet firmly positioned on the screen.

Avoid distractions like Miley's tongue

Multi-tasking is almost impossible while playing Flying Cyrus. Even talking to someone may result in failure. Drown out the family pet, your significant other and the TV, then enter the Miley zone; playing on an airplane or bus is not a great idea. Finally, avoid staring directly at her tongue. It is quite mesmerizing.

Take frequent breaks

Flying Cyrus will wreck havoc on your nerves and patience. People don't rage quit. They rage delete the game from their phones. That's why it's a great idea to put the game down and do something else. Go outside, get something to eat or meditate. It'll be there when you get back.

Don't get discouraged

Easier said than done, right? Let's say you have a high score of 100 and the next try you die at 99. That's a huge downer, but you have to shrug it off and restart. Accept that you'll fail playing Flying Cyrus more than you'll succeed, but relish the occasional victory. The higher your score, the more impressed and bewildered other players will be.
