Jumping birds is a free Windows 8 game app. It is a free platform jumping game app for Windows 8 devices. As the name suggests, the game has a yellow and black colored funny looking bird, that keeps on jumping all the time. And, with the bird you’ll get endless platforms, going up. All these platforms are suspended freely in the air, and has gaps between each other. All you have to do is direct the jumps of the bird so that he lands on higher platform from the earlier one, and reaches the topmost platform, that you can achieve without falling off the screen. Jumping each platform gives you scores. So, the objective is to get to the highest point to achieve your all time best score.
Gameplay of this Windows 8 game app:
Well, the game is flat simple. But, is sure fun. It does really checks how good are your reflexes and how fast can you make a decision. The gameplay is pretty good. And there are variations in the gameplay while playing the game. Sometimes you’ll get simple platforms aligned in a straight line, just one above another; making you do nothing, so you might end up getting relaxed. But, suddenly you’ll start getting platforms that are so far to each other, that it becomes difficult to reach to a safer higher platform. This a fact that makes the game challenging but fun.
From the twist and turns perspective, the game is really simple. There are no such twist and turns, or any complicated rules. All you have to do is help the bird reach the highest platform possible. And you can do that by directing the jumps of the bird using the left and right keyboard arrow keys. And, like I mentioned above, landing on a higher platform safely gives you points. So, the higher you go, the higher your scores will go. The previous best and current game scores are shown at the bottom of the screen. So you can actually see how well you are doing, and how more up you need to go in order to break the previous best.
Keep jumping safely and try to land on the platform, because if you fall off the screen you’ll die and the game ends. The game restarts from the very beginning with zero score.
I liked the fact that game quickly resumes, once you die. Hence removes all those cumbersome steps of going back to Main screen and restart the game, again. Also, this Windows 8 game app cleverly repeats the platforms and you won’t even realize that there’s any repetition. This Windows 8 game app runs smoothly, without any lags or crashes. And there is a good sync between the keys controls and the game actions.

Jumping birds, sure is a good Windows 8 game app. It’s fun and keeps you keyed in to the game. But after playing for a while you may feel bored with the game. But, for some it sure will stay interesting and challenging. The game is a good start. Although I wish it’s possible to play the game in full screen, because the game is played in a narrow canvas. Still it’s a good make, and is a good way to kill some time.
