    What started as a ridiculous proposal in a bar at GDC has since turned in to the game which will bring about a new era of iOS gaming. Forget everything you thought you knew about video games. Hodappy Bird is nearly upon us. It's going to be submitted soon, and will be quickly available as a free download.

    It has bitcoins you can find (and mine via watching Vungle videos) which are then spent to randomize Hodappy Bird's appearance along with ACTUAL PAY TO WIN MECHANICS where you can buy increasingly expensive continues. If that's not your thing, the alternate Super Hodappy Bird 64 is the pure pro gamer mode you're looking for with no continues allowed AND shifted color palette which makes Gunnar gaming glasses required.

    COMING SOON FOR... ZERO DOLLARS.

    I wasn't trying to offend you. It seems like a joke. Literally and intentionally.

    I'm not offended, I just realize that this game might just be too good for a lot of people out there to understand. It's like when you watch Citizen Kane as a child and your takeaway is "What the hell is 'Rosebud'?"

    Great 1! Lol. I wonder if anyone will believe this? I love that you have a screen shot of a video ad. It would be awesome if in the end the jokes on me. I wish I could add spoiler in the TA app.

    Hodappy Bird FIRST REVIEW

    Hodappy Bird in a word, is complete iPhone perfection. Similar to how Casablanca and Citizen Cane are taught in film schools around the planet as the greatest movies of all time, Hodappy Bird will no doubt quickly become the text book example of a excellence in iPhone gaming and will serve as a benchmark for all new iPhone developers to aspire to when searching for App Store greatness.

    Similar to JRR Tolkein's Lord of the Rings trilogy redefining the fantasy genre as we know it today, madgarden's Hodappy Bird has forever changed the flappy gaming scene. The game's protagonist, Hodapp, flaps in the air minding his own business. By tapping the screen, he begins flapping in the air towards small gaps between pipes that represent comments, PR e-mails, and toucharcade forum assholes.

    During flight through the air, you earn points by making it through gaps between tubes and collecting bitcoins. If you even come close to a tube you will die, but don't fear because you can spend your bitcoins to continue the game! If you don't have bitcoins, the game lets you mine bitcoins right there! I mean come on what more can you ask for? No IAPs! The game even includes a Super Hodapp 64 Pro mode that makes everything more amazing by changing the colors.:D

    Now you may think to yourself "oh this is just another dumb Flappy Bird clone!" However you would be mistaken! According to the creator Eli Hodapp, he actually met Grandmaster Dong and got personal approval for this project! That means this is the first officially condoned Flappy Bird clone EVER. Think about that for a minute. Doesn't that blow your ####ing mind?

    While Hodappy Bird has a limited GameCenter setup, the amazing art and sound design will have both art snobs and audiophiles alike amazed with the overall production. Hodapp is drawn with such absolute clarity that the game almost feels life-like. The sound effects, whether a bloop or a beep, are masterfully recorded and feature a warmth and tonality which is often lost in highly compressed iPhone audio tracks. These things combined create an immersive gaming experience which is rivaled by few other titles on the App Store today.

    But don't take my word for it, instead, watch the video- http://files.me.com/ehodapp/xm0wfh.mov

    My only regret is not having a camera capable of picking up all the subtle nuances in the art, and while I believe the h.264 codec is the best video codec available today... Hodappy Bird is a game which truly must be experienced to be fully appreciated.

    (Oh god please no one take this seriously.)

    No, not "rage-quit." Enlightened is more like it.

    Ever since I saw this game, I stopped playing all my other ones. Everything looks and feels like boring crap compared to just staring at the preview screenshots posted in this thread.

    Hodappy Bird will ruin gaming forever, simply because no game before or after will ever compare to the sheer amazement and unprecedented enjoyment that this game will bring. We are standing on the brink of both the apocaplypse and the rapture of the videogame universe.
