Everybody’s doing a Flappy Bird clone nowadays. Noodlecake surprised us last week with the excellent Flappy Golf [Free] and even our own Eli Hodapp is starring in his own game called Hodappy Bird. This might seem like a joke but it isn’t. And no, you’re not the only one wondering if the world has gone insane.

The latest impressive version of Flappy Bird was made by Adam Saltsman that you may know from the excellent runner Canabalt [$2.99]. During the Flappy Jam he went on to develop Flappybalt [Free] a mash-up between Flappy Bird and Canabalt. Released on Github as an open source game it was just a matter of time before someone ported it over to iOS and Android. Well today you can play Flappybalt thanks to Steve Richey. It’s free, without any kind of IAPs so if you’re into Flappy games (I guess that’s a genre now?) download it right now. Don’t forget to flap over to this thread and share your impressions with the community. I might have to start working on Flappy Cow now…

      No, if I have to put up with countless "hardcore" rougelikes and dungeon crawlers, you have to handle this.

      • Pete Osborne

        Where are these countless roguelikes you speak of?!

    • Stormourner

      I think not XD

      Actually, this one is pretty good. It's unique and is distinguishable over all the other flappy-likes.

      God, have you even played Flappy Golf? It is so damn good.

    I'm perfectly fine with these articles. If you don't like Flappy Bird, read the other 10+ articles released today and ignore this one. It's simple, really. :/

    XCLNT! once again proof that their is no limit to innovation, no let's c something disruptive.

    This and Flappy Golf are actually really fun games. If they changed their titles and released them under some other name, all you people would have no problem with either. They both take the core flap element but add enough twists to make it their own original game, that ends up being extremely fun; not just some clone. These are two games that I will happily be keeping on my phone. Flappybalt even reminds of 1001 Attempts.

    In any case, stop complaining. These are cool takes on the flappy-likes and are both fun. Flappy Golf has plenty of levels, that are great for killing time. And they're free, and nobody is forcing you to play them.

    If you fly up the right side of the screen and flap around for a bit it will go on forever!
