Someone made a Flappy Bird tribute for the Playdate that lets you use the crank to fly

Published by Engadget on Sun, 26 May 2024

Ah, Flappy Bird. It's been a long time since I last gave any thought to the game-turned-cultural-phenomenon that briefly had us all in a chokehold a decade ago. At least, that was the case until this morning, when I stumbled upon a Reddit post announcing a Flappy Bird tribute for the Playdate and, without a moment's hesitation, sideloaded it onto my device. Now here I am, absolutely hooked on this maddening little game once again. And, using the crank to control that silly looking bird, it's even harder this time around. FlappyBird by Chibisuke is free and available to download for Playdate on itch.io. You're welcome... or, I'm sorry.FlappyBird is just like the OG game, but in grayscale. You can play using the up button on the D-pad, the 'A' button or the crank to guide the bird between the pipes, but I've been going with the latter for the extra challenge it adds. It also just feels like a perfect use of the crank, and I like making the most of the Playdate's funky design whenever I can. There are other games inspired by Flappy Bird that you can get for the Playdate, like Cranky Bird and Flappybalt, but Chibisuke's FlappyBird is a direct clone of Dong Nguyen's infamous side-scroller.It's definitely one way to get your heart rate up on a Sunday afternoon. Just, please do not ask me about my high score, I' don't want to talk about it.This article originally appeared on Engadget at https://www.engadget.com/someone-made-a-flappy-bird-tribute-for-the-playdate-that-lets-you-use-the-crank-to-fly-160647496.html'src=rss
