Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen has updated his latest game Swing Copters so that it's not quite as hard.

Of course, the whole idea behind Nguyen's games is to punish you for even the slightest of failures.

But, obviously, Nguyen decided that Swing Copters was just a little too challenging.

We agreed in our review, comparing it to the strengths of Flappy Bird when saying: "Swing Copters adds more uncertainties, more abstract values your mind must measure on the fly."

This is exactly the issue that Nguyen has addressed in the update that he rolled out for the game yesterday.

The movements of the character are more subtle than they were before, making them a little more predictable.

You should now have a better chance of getting as far up as you can. Though, it's still far from easy.

You can check out the differences the update makes for yourself by downloading Swing Copters on the App Store [download] and Google Play [download].
