Flappy Bird now available for the Unexpanded Vic-20

Classic mobile game, Flappy Bird, has made its way to the unexpanded VIC-20 thanks to VIC 20 Denial forum member, Hawks.

Flappy Bird was originally launched as a mobile game in 2013, and developed by Vietnamese video game artist and programmer Dong Nguyen. The game is a side-scroller where the player controls a bird, attempting to fly between sets of pipes without coming into contact with them. The bird flaps upward each time the player taps the screen; if the screen is not tapped, the bird falls due to gravity.

The game went viral and was hugely successful, but was mysteriously removed from both the App Store and Google Play by its developer in February 2014. Nguyen stated that he had taken the game down because it had become an “addictive product.”

Many clones of the game have since appeared on a variety of platforms, including the Atari 2600 and Spectrum Next. And if you’d like to play it on the VIC, you can download it from here.
