FlappyVort Beta

Post by Roobar » Tue Apr 01, 2014 15:53

FlappyVort

Well, you know, it's that time of the year...

FlappyVort is a Vorticons mod, a FlappyBird clone.

It's still under development, but you can already try the beta here.

I assume your screenshots are mockups? The working interface is a bit different.



Also, I am better than all of you:

Heh. When I made those screenshots, I thought "Why not make a real game out of this and fool those who would think "meh, another April fools joke"?". And I took this joke one step further and made an actual game :P.

well done wiivn. On both accounts, fooling me and the quality of the game.

Like the (still unreleased) XXX mod.

Anyway, this is cool. I'd like to see another version with a Keen character that actually flies, like a skypest, or a bip ship, or one of those jacks from the cave of oblivion.

Introducing... FlappyPest!

The 'pest doesn't actually respond to your taps, so you're pretty much guaranteed to lose the game quite quickly no matter what you do. This is very annoying, for that classic Skypest feeling.

As far as mobile games go, I'm more of a fan of 2D auto-run games like Bit Trip Runner. That one works better than the random ones, so you can actually memorize what's coming next on difficult levels. And it auto restarts the level instead of waiting for death to finish.
