Recently, there is a Flappy-Bird-alike game which is played by lots of people through Insta Stories. This blink game play mechanic called Flying Face, is created by @dvoshansky.

Tap the search button (magnifying glass icon) at the bottom of the app. Tap the ‘search’ field at the top of the window. Tap ‘Accounts’ and write ‘dvoshansky’.

How to play Flappy Bird (Flying Face) in Insta Story?

If you followed the instructions above, you now have Flying Face / Flappy Bird Insta filter available in the Instagram app. So how to play the game?

The game is very simple. Make sure you face the selfie camera (Front-facing camera). Tap the screen to start playing. The Flappy Bird character is controlled via blinking with your eyes. I tried single-eye blinking, but it best work when you blink with your two eyes. Continue blinking to maintain altitude. Every blink will make the bird fly up on the vertical axis. If you stop blinking, the bird will be pulled down by gravity.
