A few days ago I tried out this amazing Instagram filter game called “Flying Face“, developed by dvoshansky (Instagram username). Some refer to it as Flying Face Instagram mask, although it’s not actually a mask. Keep in mind that this game wasn’t developed by the original developer of Flappy Bird. It’s NOT an official Flappy Bird Instagram filter.
What’s interesting about this Flappy Bird-like Instagram filter is the controls. Instead of tapping on the screen, what you do is blink with your eyes. Every time you blink with your eyes, the bird, which carries your own face, by the way, moves vertically.
It’s still a very hard game as the original and blinking with your eyes isn’t necessarily the most convenient way to play a game, to say the least. Still, it’s a very original way.
The game was developed using Spark AR, the same technology that enables all the other amazing face filters to come to life.
I highly recommend trying it out. I am really bad at this type of game. I tried the original Flappy Birds game and Flying Face is not less punishing than the original one. I was able to get like 3 points, but that’s about it. One of the things that are missing is a global leaderboard. I mean, I didn’t find a global leaderboard in this game. I think that this should be available for Instagram filter games in general.
If we look into the future, we can see that this type of selfie games are just going to be more and more popular. Right now Snapchat delivers the best gameplay experiences in my opinion, but Instagram AR creators are catching up and creating their own amazing AR selfie games. This is a great example and I’m sure there will be plenty more in the near future.
All in all, a fantastic filter so don’t forget to check it out.
