How do I start playing Fancy Birds?
In 2014, a mobile game took the world by storm. The concept was really simple: you control a tiny bird making its way through a series of green tubes while making sure that it does not hit any obstacle. Flappy Bird, a game developed by Vietnamese programmer Dong Nguyen, rose to popularity for its simplistic yet exciting gameplay.
Fancy Birds is a new, refreshing take on this popular game we loved. This NFT game allows you to play casually and still earn $FNC tokens. This pixelated game allows players to race, redeem, compete, breed, and earn in various game modes: PVP and PVE. There are also special events such as tournaments that give allow stellar players to claim their place in the Treehouse, a special place for the Fancy Bird community.
