Loop Man is like a Flappy Bird inspired game. It is developed by Michael Werren, who saw lot of clones of Flappy Bird coming based on a template, but none match the originality. Just like Flappy Bird, this game also doesn’t have a fixed target to achieve. Just run, as long as you can. The controls are virtually just one. All you need to do is “touch”. Yes, those you heard it right. Just touch the screen to jump or swipe. Even though the game offers Easy and Hard modes, you really need some patience to learn it initially. One you get the timing right, you are the master of the game.
Unlike Flappy Bird, Loop Man provides some interesting additions to the game play. You need to collect points to get lives. At the same time you should avoid the obstacles to stay alive in the game. So with these two different objectives in the single game-play makes Loop Man very interesting.
There are lot of obstacles in the way of your run to make you fail. So you better look for the obstacles, rather than gold coins to stay alive. All you got to do is to jump over the flying objects coming you way like hammers, pans, soccer balls, and others. For the attackers emerging from the air like birds, you can fight with a swipe through the attacker. So the objective or motivation to play this game again and again. It is none other than beating your personal best score. Yes, you are the main and only competitor of you. That objective worked for Flappy Bird and it works here in Loop Man too.
Loop man is simply addictive. And to be more accurate, it is very compulsive. It is one of those rare game, when to fail after a try, your finger automatically presses the retry button to give it another go. But there here is warning. Remember your clock. If you are traveling in a public transport, you will forget your bus stop and get caught by the ticket checker.
