Efi – A Beginner’s Strategy Guide to Our Bird Game

Efi is one of our newest and most popular games here at Coolmath Games. In Efi, players are controlling a mama bird trying to get her chicks back. The goal of this bird game is to glide across the map, retrieve the younglings, and get out of there!

This is not as easy as it sounds though. Players must use precision and path planning in order to get through the mazes. Don’t worry though, in this blog we will teach you how to play, along with some strategies to retrieve all 20 baby birds.

How to Play Efi

The controls in Efi could not be more simple. The only buttons that users need to use are ‘A’ and ‘D’. These controls turn the bird left and right, respectively. Don’t worry about having to move forward, the game will do it for you automatically.

There are two important aspects in Efi – Rescue your birds, and don’t crash.

Rescue the Birds

All players have to do to rescue the baby birds is to maneuver through the map and pass over them. They will automatically get scooped up right when you pass over them. You will need to be clever though, the baby birds are often in hard-to-reach spots on the map.

Don’t Crash

Crashing in Efi is just about the worst thing you can do in this bird game. There are two ways to crash – run into one of the walls, or run into yourself. Doing either of these will force you to restart on the level you were on, and if you picked up a baby bird it will not count.

Crashing will probably be common at first, but if you read about our Efi strategies and practice some, you will be flying through the map with ease in no time.

Efi Strategies

Efi can be a really hard game to win. Catching all 20 baby birds is a lot to handle. Don’t worry though, we’ve got a few strategies to get you through our new bird game.

Sweep corners wide

One of the most common ways to crash into a wall is to clip yourself in a corner. To avoid this, try sweeping out wide before cutting in to move around a corner. This will give you a much higher chance of success. Be warned though – this takes up quite a bit of room on the map. If you need to go back the same way, this strategy might cause some issues.

Be prepared for boosts

Throughout the game, there will be portions where players will have to go through a patch of yellow and purple boosts. These boosts will make you go much faster than normal. Be ready to turn very quickly, unprepared players often crash into the walls. At first, it is difficult to time, but with practice and preparation, we think that you will do just fine.

Plan out a route

While it can be hard to create a plan on the fly, it is a necessary skill that you must develop if you want to succeed in Efi. Oftentimes players must backtrack after retrieving one of the baby birds, so leaving room for your mama bird to maneuver around is key.

When playing our bird game, make sure to think about how you will get to the baby birds, as well as how to make it to the exit. Both considerations are equally important.
