For some reason, people really like Flappy Bird . Don’t ask me why. It’s just a tunnel avoidance game. Maybe everyone is just suffering from mass hysteria.
Anyway, Flappy Bird was recently taken off mobile markets, which has caused a huge stir in the mobile gaming community. Phones with Flappy Bird installed are literally auctioning off for hundreds of thousands of dollars on eBay. Several Flappy Bird clones have been made, allowing people to get their Flappy fix in new ways. The latest comes from Super Hexagon creator Terry Cavanagh, who has titled his creation Maverick Bird .
Maverick Bird plays, pretty much identical to Flappy Bird , but it uses the Super Hexagon code. Instead of a bird flying through pipes, Maverick Bird follows a polygon flying through other polygons to some kicking techno music. Unlike Flappy Bird , the environment changes in more than just barrier height in Maverick Bird . You’ll deal with sloped polygons, speed changes, and more in this freeware game.
Oh, did we mention it was free? Yep, you can play Maverick Bird right now on Cavanagh’s website. It’s unclear as to whether or not he will be putting it on any mobile markets, but we can only hope.
