Flappy Bird haters: avert your eyes. All good? Ok. So the crazy Flappy Bird phenomenon has died down quite a bit since creator Dong Nguyen pulled the game from the App Store last month, but as we've seen with the likes of the Flappy Jam, some really awesome games have come from it. Noodlecake Games have thrown their Flap in the ring with their brand new release Flappy Golf [Free], itself a product of the Flappy Jam. It takes a similar structure and all the courses from their 2D golfing game Super Stickman Golf 2 [Free], but instead of aiming and determining the power of each individual shot you're simply flapping your ball along trying to get it in the cup. The goal is to get in the cup in as few flaps as possible. It's a simple idea, but it works really well and is a lot of fun.

Like Flappy Bird or hate it, Flappy Golf is something you should try out. It's a simplified but still fun game of golf, and it's completely free without IAP. In fact, I actually kind of wish it DID have an IAP to remove ads, but they're not so obnoxious that they diminish the experience. Flappy Golf features more than 30 courses with 9 holes each, so there's a ridiculous amount of content to play through, especially for free. Also, you have the ability to flap both left and right, and doing both in quick succession will cause you to flap straight up, so there's some subtle strategies to getting the best pars on each course. If you need something new to pass the time while you wait for the release of Hodappy Bird on this otherwise uneventful Tuesday, give Flappy Golf a download.

    A pretty interesting game AND TA gets to post about Flappy Bird again after a days-long hiatus -- everyone wins.

  • Peter Bohanna

    cool

  • Anotherkellydown

    Haha! Awesome, thanks for the article. Love the Noodlecake golf games and golf games in general. Plus I'm a flappy fan. A free game by that studio combining the two is crazy but I love it!

  • mclifford82

    I'd argue that any game without ads cannot possibly be a flappy-like.

    Our world is really coming to an end...

      It could get even worse, Chair could release Infinity Flap.

      • Stormourner

        PPPPPPPFFFFFTTTT!!!!!! Infinity Flap? I would buy that

    Society will be mining the rich vein of innovation that is Flappy Bird for generations to come. The world is forever different now. And for those who say they are sick of Flappy Bird news: that's exactly what blog commenters said at the time of the Declaration of Independence, the Wright Brothers' first flight, and Bi Sheng's first printing press.

    Off to play some FlapThulhu and Flappy Golf...

  • InkyTheGhost

    Wow, this game is actually fantastic. I can't imagine how difficult the later levels will be, but I'm sure going to play them.

  • Holcman

    This game is actually pretty fun! Haters, at least play the game before judging based on the word flappy please. :)

  • spokentruths772

    Oh no not again please don't start this again

  • lr1919

    Stop complaining. This is awesome!

  • GiHubb

    Those Noodlecake guys are simply terrific.

  • lancheta

    I hope there is an option to take off ads

  • GiHubb

    Give us multiplayer (race + async) and this will be a classic!
    Leaderboards would also be nice, SSG2 style.

    Very cool, when Eli first played this on Twitch I didn't know it was dev of Stickman golf who made Flappy golf :) So many levels to play love the game. I hope there will be a way to remove ads but I can simply turn off my wifi.
