Flappy Bird death creates void that crappier versions try to fill

Flappy Bird cyber

As you probably have heard- Flappy Bird is no longer available for download (click here for my review on it). As the world goes into Flappy Bird withdrawals, the app creators of the world decided to get the simplicity of the game and make really stupid versions of it. Here are my personal favorites (they are really stupid).

 

When I first saw this, I first thought that it was just a joke and thought “Fall Out Boy isn’t that much of a sell out” and then I remember that it was Fall Out Boy that we were talking about and they would be the band to do this. The game called “Fall Out Bird” is pretty much the head of the band members magically spurting wings (I wonder if my head will do that once it’s detached from my body) and having to dodge guitar’s head stock (the top of the guitar where the stings end out for those of you that aren’t guitarist). While it’s only out for Android devices now, I really don’t see it going that far because well….it’s Fall Out Boy. And it’s a pretty stupid game. Sadly, It’s not most stupid knock off on this list.

 

If this doesn’t get pulled from Google Play, it will be a miracle. “Clumsy Bird” is what I would expect to come out if “Angry Birds” and “Flappy Bird” had an angry flappy baby.  The best part of the game is that it doesn’t even try to hide that the game’s bird is based on the red Angry Bird.  Is it that bad of a game that the creators of “Angry Birds” just don’t care or do they feel bad for the little app that realistically sucks?

This game is just one big piece of crap (literally). “Happy Poo Flap” makes “Fall Out Bird” look like a genius game. The sad part is that it’s actually a better game than the original “Flappy Bird”.  You pretty much take this flying piece of crap through different levels and collecting coins and then cash them in for new characters and accessories. The even sadder part is that Happy Poo is actually what one make consider a mobile game franchise that isn’t in the toilet yet (making potty jokes is actually kind of fun). Maybe this little turd is what “Flappy Bird” creators should look at when they consider making the flappy sequel.

Our last knock off features everyone’s second favorite One Direction Member- Harry Styles (Niall is everyone’s favorite). Instead of making through holes, you must guide young Styles as he jumps, or dives, off a cliff in “Harry Dive” (that sounds like a porno). Now is it just me or doesn’t it seem like who every made this game wants Styles to know that they want him gone? Either way, the game is strange and a little bit weird (mainly for the person diving off a cliff aspect of the game and you helping them). It’s not the strangest, probably Happy Poo takes that flush, but it’s up there on the strange meter.

Mobile Game Review: Flappy Bird

2

Flappy

So if you have lived under a rock for the past few weeks, there is a mobile game that is sweeping the world. On the outside, it looks like a mobile version of a Super Mario game. But it’s really the Regina George of mobile gaming. So evil takes game form in Flappy Bird.

This game has a very simple concept- You tap the bird and try to make it in-between the green tunnels (hence where the Mario feel comes from. It doesn’t help that the bird looks like a fish from Mario as well). The only problem is that you have to clear the hole PERFECTLY. If you are too high or too short, then your life is over and you might as well just live in a box outside a 7-Eleven.

This game is kinda like attempting to lick your elbow. You know that you are unable to successfully do it but you just have to try because of the feeling of being able to say “hey, I licked my elbow” (which is a realistically stupid achievement and if that’s your life goal, you should really reconsider your life choices).

Now I downloaded this game and played for a good 5-10 minutes before I wanted to throw my phone. I managed to get a score of 3…okay, it was 2….before I realized that this game was a lost caused and I was better off donating my time to something more productive and less likely to cause me emotional and mental torture (hint: you’re reading it now).

Overall, this game is a game that teaches a valuable life lessons: You can only succeed in life if you are perfect, Angry Birds really isn’t that difficult, the only way to learn how to do things is by trial and error (with the error being death), and the most important one- Bird games are the invention of the devil.

I don’t recommend this game unless you want to make your friend’s life a living hell and have a good laugh as they flip out
