Flappy bird clone takes <= 9 hours in Swift

Apparently it was 9 hours with some interruptions. If we're talking basic
functionality -- fly the bird, flap the wings, move the pillars left and
count how many the user has passed, collision detection, start/end games
and high score tracking -- then I'm guessing this wouldn't go much faster
in LiveCode. I might shave an hour or two off, which is significant when
starting from 7 or 9, but I doubt I'd have this running in <= 4 hours.

Curious if anyone else would estimate differently.
