Flappy Bird clones, rip offs and replacements flooded the app store in February. Here are the 10 most insane, or incredible, Flappy Bird clones available.
Flappy Bird ushered in the month with a storm, shooting to the top of the iTunes and Google Play as gamers couldn’t get enough of the annoyingly difficult game. We even saw gamers looking for Flappy Bird cheats to get a higher score to share on Twitter or Facebook. But the fun couldn’t last forever, and earlier this month the creator pulled Flappy Bird from all App Stores.
In the two weeks since Flappy Bird flew off the app store dozens, possibly hundreds, of Flappy Bird clones and alternatives arrived. It got so bad that Apple and Google started cracking down on them. That doesn’t seem to matter as Flappy Bird clones like Flappy Wings, Hoppy Frog, Splashy Fish and Flying Cyrus Wrecking Ball still sit at the top of the free iPhone app lists.
It’s not clear if the Flappy Bird fad is past, so that gamers can move on to Threes and Bridge Builder, but as we close out Flappy Bird February here are the most incredible Flappy Bird games we could find.
Flying Cyrus Wrecking Ball
Flying Cyrus Wrecking Ball was the first breakout Flappy Bird parody to arrive. Switch Miley Cyrus and her famous tong for a bird and you’ve pretty much nailed this gameplay. In this game instead of pipes, Cyrus must doge wrecking balls and sledgehammers.
Tappy Bieber, which may as well be named Flappy Bieber, is a Bieber Flappy bird game that puts users in charge of the oft in trouble Canadian singer that teen girls can’t get enough of. The developer clearly missed out on a chance to swap in police cars for the pipes and make it harder to control Bieber as he eluded the cops.
Flappy Wings Free
Why ripoff one top game, when you can rip off two? Flappy Wings Free spike to the top of the charts by borrowing the bird form Tiny Wings and the gameplay from Flappy Birds. With over 100,000 reviews and a 4.5 star rating this formula works.
Fall Out Bird
Why let someone make a parody of your likeness in Flappy Bird when you can do it yourself and use it to promote a new tour. Fall Out Bird is a Flappy Bird clone that stars the members of Fall Out Boy who used the app to kick start a concert and give away some free tickets.
Flappy Beard Hipster Quest
Flappy Beard Hipster Quest is a late entrant to the Flappy Bird clones, but it’s hard to argue with a Hipster Beard and PBR. Navigate Hero Hipster through stacks of PBR cans without getting sick of the hipster’s barrage of quotes and complaints.
Forget birds, fish and frogs. Flappy Stache is a sophisticated Flappy Bird clone that is to be played with dignity, and humor. Tap to keep the mustache safe as it flies through razors to safety, perhaps to meet up with the hipster.
Forget birds and go underground with Floppy Worm, a Flappy Bird clone that puts users in a cave for a slightly more challenging version of this popular game. Collect gold as you go and aim for a high score to keep Floppy happy.
Hoppy Frog makes the cut, but it isn’t a true Flappy Bird clone. The game uses the tap, tap tap game style of Flappy Bird, but brings in clouds, sharks and golden flies to the mix. Users must collect flies and stay on clouds to make it through the never ending level.
If you are sick of tapping birds through obstacles, try catching falling Flappy Birds before they splat into the ground. Thanks to the popularity of Flappy Bird there is no end in sight for these falling Flappy Birds.
Flappy Monster Free
Flappy Monster borrows the fire bands from Mario and similar looking hills to up the challenge of getting though small openings. Reviews praise tis game for offering a good Flappy Bird alternative and adding to the challenge.
