It’s Flappy Bird In Space
Dong Nguyen yanked Flappy Bird from both Apple’s App Store and Google Play after announcing that he felt its addictive traits had “become a problem.” He’s since rescinded a bit, hinting that it’s not impossible for the bird bird to return, but that he’d still need a break from the madness before fully changing his mind. In other words? Don’t get your hopes up, fans. Dong must simmer in his thoughts.
Since nabbing Dodgy: Zero, I’ve long since forgotten about Flappy’s endless world of Mario-pilfered green pipes. I mean, Zero (which I’ve named the protagonist green blob, if he wasn’t named that already) navigates space. What’s cooler than outer space? A few things, but they’re not important, nor are they nearly as large or amazing. Plus, Zero ditches the need for oxygen without a second thought.
In all seriousness, though, Dodgy’s world is a fair bit more varied than Flappy Bird’s, all while maintaining a similarly Mario-inspired look. See the faces on those yellow blocks? Sure, they’re just two black rectangles, but they also bear a striking resemblance to the Power Stars collected in countless Mario adventures. The red multi-faced sticks popping up everywhere are a bit more of a mystery, but I’ll chalk it up to LedgeWizard games’ creative side.
