I think there's more to the story than meets the eye, dev pulling app. We'll see. Just because it's pulled doesn't mean you can't play it. I think he still makes money from ads after it's pulled.

If you downloaded it you can still play it. I bet there will be workarounds. The addiction, strike that, demand, is there.

I think I am officially in full golf withdraw...

Flappy Bird got a little boring to me just trying to beat my high score, so I am going to set a "Flappy Handicap". I figure I'll average the best 10 of my last 20 rounds, divide that number by 10, and I'll have my handicap.

I've played 10 games so far today. Using my best five scores of these ten, my handicap is 7.4 (of the 10 games, my high was 108 and my low was 10).

Does not compute. Your average can't be lower than your lowest score. :-)

Hahaha. I have WAY too much time on my hands. I'm averaging the scores that count and then dividing by 10. So the average of my 5 best in my computations so far is 74 (7.4 X 10). I figure a 7.4 handicap sounds much more golf-like than a 74 handicap.

Boy, I need warm weather so I can get out of this house :)

The physics of Flappy Bird. More than you ever wanted to know about Flappy Bird.

 

TL;DR: Is the physics in Flappy Bird realistic? Yes AND no.

 

YES: The gravitational pull is constant, producing a constant downward acceleration of 9.8 m/s/s (if we scale the bird to the size of a robin).

 

NO: The impulse provided by each tap is variable in order to produce the same post-tap velocity. In real life, the impulse from each tap would be constant and produce the same change in velocity.

I'd be surprised if there wasn't a seize and desist order.  You don't turn down $18 million / yr in advertising because of you want a private life.    The game is too much like Nintendo.

High score now at 26.

He was making $50,000 a day off the advertising.  Not a bad ROI on the couple of days he said it took him to write the app!

 

BTW......I'm up to 83 on the iPad and 61 on the phone.  :-D

Ice in my veins today. Previous best was 62 (for about a week). Placed today and got an 82 right off the bat. Steadily increased it. I think the trick for me is no distractions.
