    I have added Google play Game Services for $30

    First of all, I know that there are many Flappy Bird clones out there, but my version is different. It mimics Flappy bird in many ways, and adds many features to the game. It is compatible with Web, Android Iphone, Blackberry Windows Phone Windows Store,Flash and Desktop. Thanks.

    This game does not infringe on the intellectual property of the .GEARS studio.

    It is imperative that the graphics are changed in both the Skinned and Google integrated versions.

    Multiplayer will be with Bluetooth or a 3rd party service, like Photon.
    GPGS is complete. Cloud Save not done

    To buy the asset from me, go to my website, https://nitrolabstudios.wordpress.com/portfolio/flappy-bird-kit/

    Google Play Games Services Integration


    Unskinned

    Honestly I dont think anyone would pay for it. The simplicity is what flappybird makes flappybird, add too much content and its not fun anymore.

    I highly doubt many people will pay much for a Flappy Bird kit, also the visuals seem like they are completely copied off Flappy Bird.

    The kit looks good! I'm just curious if the code is in C# or Javascript? It would be helpful to see a video of it in action, but I'm excited for this. :D

    We the current visuals this should be rejected from the store as you have stolen art.


    Seems most popular price by far is free like the game!

    I would pay around $5-10. :) Yes there are a lot of clones out there but its always nice to have.. You could say the same with fps kits after all.

    So, you're basically ripping off someone else's fame to try and make money?

    Terrible.

    Actually, this is a kit, it is for others to use. and so youre saying, every FPS kit or Racing Kit is ripping off Battlefield, Call of Duty, CounterStrike, Need for speed, Forza, and others? Not likley. Thanks though.

    No offense, but the person who needs something simple as this should give up game development.

    No his not good at pixel art. He is good at stealing. If it isn't identical it is a few pixels different. It is a total copy. If you don't realise this is stealing you are joke.

    This isn't reskinning with similar mechanics(which is fine), this an attempt to steal from the creator. If this gets approved I will complain to unity.

    Maybe you are aware but your demo has a major flaw: Just spam the hell out of left mouse button to fly over all the obstacles.

    I know it is only a simple demo but I lol'd

    This has been a major concern with other users, and with me. I will go ahead with your advice and have the reskinned version of the kit on the unity asset store as soon as possible. I actually really appreciate your feedback. Im a young teen, and never thought that this could be such a legality. Thanks a million.

    That is such a dodgy site. Nobody should buy from there. There is no place to report the copyright infringements. I can't believe you are selling even though you know you have stolen.

    What do you mean stolen? I was ready to buy until I read that.

    If it's not stolen, I would like there to be leader boards, to see who is the best. Also it seems like the ground isn't moving.

    The game is being updated, both the webplayer and apk should reflect this in the next 10 minutes. Again, thanks. Also, that is my site, and it already has the updated unitypackage. i am currently changing screenshots, to relfect your advice. You have been a help, as i would not know how to cope with a lawsiut, being a 16 year old. I thank this community.

    In the app store there are tons of clones of the game so why not. Is the art included or not?

    Wait what happened to the art.

    The art had to go, since other forum users said they were stolen. I can give you the theme, and you can add them yourself, as I do not want a hand in the legalities.

    well to be fair the paypal portal is secured and you dont really need a huge website for 2 downloads... Currently there are 4 copies similar to flappy bird on the app store top 10. So I don't see a real issue with him trying to release a kit as many devs are making money off this app, we could easily re-use some of the code for other projects.

    He lifted or copied art assets directly from the game.

    That is because you are looking at the non-updated version of flappy bird.



    see... They are as close to exactly the same as I can tell. Both those shots are from the actual game.

    I have no issue with a clone or kit. I think it is great to see people interested in it.

    I do have a problem with the art assets being directly lifted. It appears he has realised what he has done and removed them.

    I spoke wrong. I checked your site, you are still selling the stolen assets...

    I seriously don't know what is wrong with you. Stealing is wrong! Do you not understand that?

    Buy the asset, and then decide if I was using stolen assets. You are basing this off an old video. I will change it.

    Do you have Skype? I'd wish to buy it because I don't have time doing the mechanics myself since I'm working on building an engine. :)

    You can't expect him to give you money in order to decide if you are using stolen assets when you publicly advertise it in your video by using them. It's really bad practice to use content from other people without any explicit agreement, so don't sell the skinned version if it indeed appears like in the video.

    I would also advertise people to refrain from supporting such behavior by buying this package.

    Please, look closley at the video! it is not stolen assets. Please, just look. I am being accused of doing something that is not occuring. All of the assets have been changed as of yesterday. Please, do not bad mouth my business if you are uncertian of the actions you are framing me for,

    Even if you changed one or 2 pixels, that is sufficient to not be stealing.

    They are practically identical, any reasonable person would said they are stolen. Even if you made the duplication by hand, still stealing.

    It is not stealing> i created the assets myself. I do not understand why youre picking on me. Just because im not an adult, you want to scare me away from Unity? Please. And Ive looked at your stuff, Cosmic Balance is a name of a game made in 1982, and the LightBox follows the same game mechanics of Rubix, which is heavily copyrighted. So please, dont shoot me down when I have done nothing wrong.

    If you can show me Cosmic Balance has a current trademark I will be happy to change the name.

    On the the light box, it is nothing like a rubix cube. Do you even know what a rubix cube is, or are you just saying it because the puzzle is shaped like a cube without actually trying?

    Obviously the museum not me handle the legals on that. However it falls with fair use and is free (no revenue made from it at all) and is designed to display the work of young kids from Thinkspace Minecraft classes. To think they haven't handled that properly is a mistake from you.


    If you copy Mario and change a few pixels, that doesn't mean mario is now your work. It still belongs to Nintendo. You are still using them to try and leverage sales even if they are not in the kit (which is fraud because you are making people believe they are included). I am not the only person who can see they are.

    I have no problem with you making a flappy birds kit, the problem I have is you using his artwork instead of your own. Remember copying it identically to make it look the same is the same thing as actually taking the image yourself.

    If you just sold the unskinned version then people wouldn't complain about it anymore.



    Now for a small review of the kit:

    It's a decent kit and it has all of the functionality of Flappy Bird. I was a little bummed when I found out the code wasn't commented as it's such an easy kit to assemble. There's also an issue with the text he has placed on the screen found under MainMenu and PlayGame in the hierarchy. if you remove the text areas which are labelled "cpyrhgt" and ",gears" the scene will not wipe away menu elements when playing/reloading.

    As far as mobile goes (I can only review iOS): the pipes become very close together, horizontally, when building for mobile. it's also not very smooth, framerate-wise, when running on my iPhone 5.



    does this mean that people who have already purchased your kit get this functionality for free?

    I'm definitely new to pooling. my other projects didn't experience any inconvenient lag but this one definitely does on mobile (first time making an app for iOS). do you know how to add simple pooling to this scene? do i have to remove the bar spawn/delete script and just use pooling? i'm just trying to wrap my head around it lol.
