Blink Your Way to a High Score with This Flappy Bird Clone

Remember Flappy Bird? That oh so sweet mobile game that teens around the world were playing. Well, a clone of Flappy Bird has finally made it to Google Glass. To be honest, I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.


BlinkyBird, the Flappy Bird clone for Google Glass, was released by Rich Olson of Nothing Labs on Tuesday. The game sticks to the original concept of Flappy Bird where you keep flying past pipes as long as you can to rack up points. The only things that make BlinkyBird different from the original Flappy Bird is a few graphics changes and the fact that users have to (double) blink to keep the bird afloat and to keep the bird flying past the never ending pipes.

If you’re one of those people who thinks that double blinking will look too weird, then luckily enough there are some settings you can change to use the touch pad on Google Glass to control the bird instead of blinking. So, you don’t necessarily have to look like you’re seizing out to play BlinkyBird if you don’t want to.

I’m not surprised to see a Flappy Bird clone come to Google Glass, after all it was the most popular and addicting mobile game out there for a while. And, with all the mobile clones it still kind of is. Still, I’m not sure how many people are going to be playing this. It hasn’t even been out there that long and I’ve already seen a bunch of negative comments about it.
