5 Best Flappy Bird Alternatives

  • MORE

Imitation is the finest form of Flappery. Hit mobile game "Flappy Bird" has disappeared just days after its meteoric rise, and rival developers have wasted no time launching copycats. Games like "Ironpants" and "Flappy Bee" take the same tap-to-fly formula made popular by "Flappy Bird," building on that title's simple gameplay mechanic with unique visuals and power-ups.

The infuriating yet strangely fun "Flappy Bird" was no innovator in its own right. The iOS and Android flyer blatantly borrowed art ideas from games like "Super Mario World" and "Angry Birds," so it's only fitting that it has some clones of its own. If you're looking to scratch the painfully addictive itch created by "Flappy Bird," here are some alternatives.

    I agree with YBRBY, there are more deserving flappy bird esque games that deserve special mention. Especially those that add something new to the table like Power Up Bird.

    Deserving of special mention are the better looking Flappy Bird clones such as Amazing Cupid (Android; iOS soon), and Splashy Fish (iOS; Android port much needed IMO).

    Stop writing about this shit game. These games are terrible and not worth writing, or copying. Go back to snood and tetris. This game is the lowest comments denomination of games. The scum at the bottom of the barrel. If you miss this game than kill yourself, cause you are shit.
