Patrick O'Rourke of canada.com described the game as taking "one of the few things that was great about Flappy Bird". He saw its visuals as paying homage to the Nintendo Entertainment System without "completely ripping them off" as Flappy Bird had done. He summarised the game as a "decent pick-up-and-play iOS title".
