As a concept, Flippy Knife sounds like a great idea. In implementation however, the game is difficult to play, and extremely difficult to master. Controls is easy. Touch anywhere on the screen and slide in the direction and power you wish to throw your knife to. If it lands blade first, you win. if not, you lose. Seeing as you must land on the blade and you can't land it on side of the blade, the game might frustrate players as there's no guidelines or prediction to how the blade will land. This is a flick game where you have a 3.5/10 chance to proceed.

Thankfully, there isn't a penalty in failing to flip. The game resets swiftly and quickly, and continues to encourage you to get closer to the bonus chest by landing/progressing further. The ninja themed BGM makes players feel as if this is their ninja training, which helps to increase the patience of the players playing the game.

These are the four game modes.

  • Combo
    • A flat and small stage that does not move.
    • Doing complete flips in a row will award a "gold obtaining" flip buff that lasts for a few seconds.
  • Arcade
    • Multiple platforms in an endless room where the goal is to get from one platform to the other.
    • Most playable mode without being bored as losing doesn't reset the bonus reward progression.
  • Climb
    • In a two infinite walls room, you throw your knife from one wall to the other to ascend ever upwards while dodging obstacles.
    • Bonus reward is obtained after a certain height.
  • Target
    • Akin to darts, you flip your knife and land it in a target that moves after each flip.
    • Successive throws grants a bonus chest.
