I’m not so much a fan of Flappy Bird, but theres no denying that its a very addictive game. It’s interesting how such a small change (increasing the vertical movement speed, decreasing horizontal) from Helicopter can have such a huge impact on how the game plays.
I decided to give it a go building a similar game, initially as a joke and eventually convincing some friends to help me improving it into something quite well polished and enjoyable. The game was built in under 2 weeks by 3 of us, here are some of the notable releases:
I’m really happy with how its turned out. Its released as a free Android game.
