    I'll start by being absolutely honest:

    YES, this is yet another Flappy Bird clone.

    But it's done right with a level of polish and style that I hope y'all would be kind enough to consider as an "expensive knock-off" =P

    Check it out and have fun with it!

    @lungmemoriki: Did you know that flappy bird and al it's clones remind me of Battletoads on the game boy? Anyway, nice clone, alongside the other two nice clones i found and the other 10000 clones not worth playing...

    This is great! Very well done. Nicely polished, smooth gameplay. Thumbs up!

    You said this was your first game? I'm impressed! I would like to know how you got so many reviews downloads though. Is that primarily based off of the use of a high-traffic keyword in your title? Did you use any linkbuilding or any other tactics?

    Also for personal reasons...what's the application you used to create that initial colored sketch of Flabby Bird on the dev site? It looks real nice :)

    Anyways, I like it and it will remain on my phone

    @Disastorm: Haha, thanks for the love! Unfortunately, I don't think our shirt made it to production on threadless >< Would you honestly wear that tho? :p

    @Clopay: Thank you so much for your reply and keeping Flabby on your phone!! To address your questions, it was our team's first game. Our programmer has made other game projects in the past. Honestly, we were very surprised by the reviews and downloads as well. We didn't do any link building or other tactics. I think we were just fortunate to catch the whole Flappy Bird (clone) craze. At first we wanted to have the word "Flappy" in the title, but Google rejected us T^T Our designer used Photoshop creative cloud exclusively for her designs.

    In the meantime, check out our latest update!!

    We've fed a few of Flabby's non-flying friends some red energy drink, thus giving them flappy wings! Get acquainted with each of them today!



    Flappy Rabbit [DOWNLOAD]
    This is not the original Rody Horse toy.
    It's a rabbit.
    Sure, it's chubby like Rody.
    Yep, it's got long ears like Rody.
    Absolutely, it requires balance and coordination to play like Rody.
    But it's a rabbit, and that's that.
    Expect to see Rod... I mean Rabbit come Easter!

    Flappy Cat [DOWNLOAD]
    "How fine you look when dressed in rage."
    "Only the insane equate pain with success."
    "The uninformed must improve their deficit, or die."
    "Only a few find the way, some don't recognize it when they do - some... don't ever want to."
    Just a few quotes by the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland which sound insanely appropriate for this type of game.
    Unlock the Flabby Cheshire by getting over 100 points!
    Or perish trying...

    Flappy Dog [DOWNLOAD]
    Ever wondered how evolution *really* works?
    Like... How humans evolved from... germs?
    Or how Charmeleon evolves into Charizard?
    It's simple!
    As illustrated in beautiful pixel art here, said species merely need to pass through a certain number of highly deadly chocolate bars to evolve into a new breed!
    Can you unlock the secrets of evolution?

    Flappy AJ1 [DOWNLOAD]
    What do you get when you spill a red energy drink onto a pair of Jordan 1's?
    Mad at first, and then you'll also get:
    FLAPPY AJ1
    One of the most iconic and sought after sneakers must stay clean and clear from the towering chocolate bars of unwashable stains!
    Can you unlock all 4 colorways?

    Why... why would you clutter up the store with the same game with a sprite swap? You could have just offered it as an option in game to sprite swap characters. Why does Google even this kind of behavior.


    All this does it make it harder for other games to get noticed because of quantity of garbage like this in all the app stores. *You* should be embarrassed having your name associated with something like this. A few years from now when you go apply for a gamedev job and you put your 35 flappy bird clones on your resume you'll get laughed out of the office.


    One day when you make a real game you'll see that this garbage prevents even your own game from being listed in a visible spot and you'll realize what you've done to yourself. This isn't a personal attack, but more of some friendly advice.


    If you make a total of 100 flappy bird clones, I will personally paypal you $200. So keep at it, tiger--- some motivation!

    I believe there can never be enough clones. Imagine how many species of animals are out there...
    I always encourage people to create clones. The more people focus on making clones, the lager the market share for those that don't.

    Nice work man!

    Sorry to dig this topic out, but can you guide me how to capture the screenshot and share it on facebook ?

    Here is my code, I tested with a Debug.log("done") at the end of the TakeScreenshot() function and when I hit the button, I got the result: there is a word "done" in console window, the game is stopped just a bit of second (I think it's has captured the screenshot) but nothing appeared.

    Code (csharp):
    1. if (// share button)
    2.      callFB();
    3. void callFB () {
    4.        if (!FB.IsLoggedIn) {
    5.          FB.Login("email,publish_actions", LoginCallback);                                                                                                                                                                
    6.        }
    7.        else StartCoroutine(TakeScreenshot());
    8.     }
    9.  
    10.     void LoginCallback(FBResult result) {                                                                                          
    11.        FbDebug.Log("LoginCallback");                                                          
    12.        if (FB.IsLoggedIn) {                                                                                      
    13.          OnLoggedIn();                                                                      
    14.        }                                                                                      
    15.     }
    16.     void OnLoggedIn() {                                                                                          
    17.        FbDebug.Log("Logged in. ID: " + FB.UserId);                                            
    18.     }
    19.  
    20.     private IEnumerator TakeScreenshot() {
    21.        yield return new WaitForEndOfFrame();
    22.  
    23.        var width = Screen.width;
    24.        var height = Screen.height;
    25.        var tex = new Texture2D(width, height, TextureFormat.RGB24, false);
    26.        // Read screen contents into the texture
    27.        tex.ReadPixels(new Rect(0, 0, width, height), 0, 0);
    28.        tex.Apply();
    29.        byte[] screenshot = tex.EncodeToPNG();
    30.  
    31.        var wwwForm = new WWWForm();
    32.        wwwForm.AddBinaryData("image", screenshot, "InteractiveConsole.png");
    33.        wwwForm.AddField("message", "herp derp.  I did a thing!  Did I do this right?");
    34.  
    35.        FB.API("me/photos", Facebook.HttpMethod.POST, Callback, wwwForm);
    36.        Debug.Log("done");
    37.     }
    38.  
    39.     private Texture2D lastResponseTexture;
    40.     private string lastResponse = "";
    41.     public string ApiQuery = "";
    42.     void Callback(FBResult result)
    43.     {
    44.        lastResponseTexture = null;
    45.        if (result.Error != null)
    46.          lastResponse = "Error Response:\n" + result.Error;
    47.        else if (!ApiQuery.Contains("/picture"))
    48.          lastResponse = "Success Response:\n" + result.Text;
    49.        else
    50.        {
    51.          lastResponseTexture = result.Texture;
    52.          lastResponse = "Success Response:\n";
    53.        }
    54.     }
