Yet another Flappy Bird headline has
graced today's news feed. Owners of the Pebble smart-watch can now
suffer enjoy a perfectly fine port of the fabled
game, courtesy of developer Stuart Ha. The Pebble-y
version is called Tiny Bird, and it seems to be doing an okay job at
scaling down the original game to fit the smart-watch, which has a
144x168 monochrome LCD display with no touch-capabilities.
Thankfully, Pebble's limitations are of no concern to Flappy Bird's simple gameplay. To play, all you have to do is press the smart-watch's Up-button to make the bird flap its tiny wings. However, the watch's hardware buttons have a deep travel to them, and having to repeatedly and quickly press them could become another obstacle in the thankless task of mastering Flappy Bird.
But, believe it or not, Tiny Bird is already at the top of Pebble's app store...which confirms everyone's suspicions that Dong Nguyen's creation is, indeed, enchanted with mystical dark magic that makes it conquer every digital marketplace it flaps upon; and the bird is, arguably, the spawn of Satan.
