As some of you might have seen, the incredibly hyped game Flappy Bird has been ported to the Atari 2600.

It doesn't really look that convincing and I am sure the O2/Vpac can do much better then that.

So my dear Homebrewers... I CHALLENGE YOU!!! Wink

If it could be done, it would be another game that only uses the action button (no joystick control).  Wink

Sorry, but every other Flappy Bird conversion is pointless now that the ultimate one has been created:

Flappy Bird is are really simple game in where you are a bird that has to avoid tubes while flying sideways. You have to make the bird "Flap" by touching the screen (or press fire on some of the remakes) to keep it flying.

It's a really hard game that has become so much of a worldwide sensation that the developer decided to remove it from the appstores because he wanted to have his personal life back. Smiley

More and more ports of the game for different systems are popping up including the A2600 and the Vectrex.
I am sure it must be realtively easy to make for the Videopac.

I haven't played the game yet, but it's basically the same game as Cavity from Revival Studios isn't it?

Here are some facts about Flappy Bird:

Downloads till february :        50 million

Banner advertising :             50.000 Dollar profit per day

He was earning till feburay :  1,5 million Dollar

Time to make the game :       3 days

Maybe a Videopac/Odyssey game is also a goldmine  Cheesy

If you don't Flap (hit the joystick) the bird will fall out of the sky.

Im sorry Janzl, I really not fan of this game. To be honest I think if it was originally release for a Vpac/Ody, back in the days, many people will dislike it. Theres a lot of games with similar formula that should be better. Ataris Dolphin, for instance, is at least more creative.

BTW: Cow Fever is far better than this Wink
