It's hard to believe that, but it's been five and a half years since the entire Flappy Bird phenomenon took the world by storm. Dong Nguyen's viral sensation left a lasting mark on the world of play, regardless of whether people liked it or not. After the success of Flappy Bird there was a flood of clones and imitators trying to make the Coattails of the original rich, but there were also many developers who played seriously with the Flappy formula. Do you remember the Flappy Jam? That brought us a lot of great titles. Or things like Flappy Golf or the newer Flappy Fighter that seem to make fun of Flappy Bird but in fact contain an absolutely solid and entertaining game base below. While the world of Flappy -inspired games has slowed down lately, apparently there is still some gas in this tank when it comes to flapping, and Flappy Royale is the newest Example of Das.
Yes, Flappy Royale is exactly what you probably think. You play a Flappy Bird game against 99 other players until only one remains. Just like any other Battle Royale, but with more flutter and less shooting. There is also a daily test mode in which each player has only 10 chances to make it as far as possible at a set level. The level changes every day and everyone plays the same layout. I know what you're thinking, and that's that Flappy Bird is crap and whatever comes out of it is crap, and why am I wasting your time telling you about it? The thing is, however, Flappy Royale is just damn funny. The formula works. It turns out that Flappy Bird is a lot more fun when you play in real time against dozens of other people (or at least against their ghosts in real time, who do not really know what it's about) with it yet).
Finally, Flappy Royale is the product of Orta Therox and Em Lazer-Walker with contributions by Zach Gage. Do you think that you would misdirect a lineup of talents? Of course not. But do not just take my word: Flappy Royale was released today in the open beta for iOS, Android and web browsers. Visit the official website and see for yourself. The full launch should take place sometime next month.
