Addictive Avian App Parodies

Flappy Doge is a Replacement for the Flappy Bird Removed Game

— February 11, 2014 — Pop Culture
With Flappy Bird removed, thankfully people on the Internet have already been at work to fill the void. Flappy Bird was a free-to-download app that was popular mainly because of how frustrating and extremely difficult it was to play. The Vietnamese developer recently removed the game from Google Play and the iTunes App Store because as Dong Nguyen said in one tweet, Flappy Bird “ruins my simple life.”

However, Flappy Doge is a web-based parody game that works just like the frustrating app, except that the bird is replaced by the face of Doge. The always-in-the-way pipes and the backgrounds are pixellated just like the original app too.

Having to play with a mouse and a computer instead of using a finger on a touchscreen proves to be just as difficult, so in essence, the game is a perfect Flappy Bird replica, although that aggravating little bird will be missed.
Trend Themes
1. Addictive Game Parodies - The popularity of Flappy Doge illustrates the opportunity to create addictive game parodies and fill the void left by popular games that are removed.
2. Web-based Games - The success of Flappy Doge highlights the potential for web-based games as a popular and accessible alternative to app-based games.
3. Simple Yet Difficult Games - The popularity of Flappy Bird and Flappy Doge indicates the potential for simple games that are difficult to master and provide a unique level of challenge for players.
Industry Implications
1. Gaming - The gaming industry can benefit from creating parodies of popular games that capitalize on nostalgia and tap into the desire for addictive games with unique challenges.
2. Web Development - The success of Flappy Doge suggests an opportunity for web developers to create engaging and visually appealing web-based games that can reach a wider audience.
3. Mobile App Development - The removal of Flappy Bird highlights the dangers of relying solely on one popular game, and presents an opportunity for mobile app developers to create and continuously update a variety of popular games.
