I am sure we all remember the once hugely popular mobile game Flappy Bird. If you haven’t already heard, it is back, but this time, you won’t be flapping alone; you will be competing with 99 other players to be the last-man-standing, or in this instance, the last-bird-standing. It is the Flappy Bird you know and love, battle royale-style.
Every gaming is hoping onboard the battle royale genre and so why not this cute pixelated side scrolling bird too, right? Right. Flappy Royale, as it is aptly called, is not developed by the original developer, Dong Nguyen, though. It is developed by engineer Orta Therox and experimental game developer Em Lazer-Walker with contribution by Zach Gage.
Here’s the gist of the game:
“Flappy Royale is a battle royale-styled game influenced by Flappy Bird. It takes the competitive nature of a battle royale where far too many people play at once, with the un-forgiving nature of Flappy Bird.
Flappy Royale has two game modes: a royale free-for-all with up to 100 players and a daily top-score system to see who got past the most pipes daily where players have a limited number of tries.
If it flaps (and kinda if it doesn’t), we’ve tried to get it in the game, giving you the chance to play as all sorts of animals and glammed to the brim.
We think you’ll find it messy, frustrating, and very fun for 10 seconds. Then you hit a pipe, and start all over again. You know the drill.”
In the spirit of the personalization found in many of today’s battle royale game, namely Fortnite and PUBG, Flappy Royale features customizable flappy birds too. Actually, it is more inspired by Fortnite cos’ you and the 99 players will be starting off from a bus.
