Joust- Flapping Technique

<work in progress>

The button used for joust is called a leaf switch button.  It is two long metal bars that are pressed together by the button.  This allows very fine gradients of button movement so you can flap very quickly.

  • To take advantage of the button’s precision, when flying you will keep pressure on the button and press it repeatedly in small movements.  This is much different than slapping the button when playing Donkey Kong or Galaga.
  • Master players may choose to use a 2 finger flap technique called double flapping.  This allows your index and middle finger to alternate on the button allowing the bird to accelerate at turbo speeds.  Handy when battling the blue shadow lords at higher waves.
