Link Dump Fridays

DoraGone but not forgotten, Flappy Bird lives on in countless clones and a set of games made for Flappy Jam as indie developers unite to put their own spin on the simple yet infuriatingly addictive concept. It's sort of like channeling Helga Pataki... bird, how I hate you, with your brutally difficult and simple gameplay and yet... how I love you. Literally hundreds of games have been created, so let's take a look at some of our favourites and see if we can't get you to ruin a few keyboards and your mouse, eh?

  • Flappy Space ProgramFlappy Space Program - One small flap for birds, one big headache for mankind. Lecortex throws physics and gravity into the mix as your goal is to see how many birds you can launch and keep orbiting your planet at a time... without having any of them collide on their flight path, or get too far away from the planet itself. Do you think "like launching explosive robotic birds" is going to replace "like herding cats" to describe how hard something is?
  • FLAPPYBALTFLAPPYBALT - Adam Atomic's Canabalt universe is a pretty miserable place to live in if you're not a fan of repeated painful death. His spin on the formula is a little more restrictive, as you control a bird flapping back and forth in a single screen filled with spikes that move up and down as you go from left to right. How long can you last? I don't mean your high score, I mean how long can you last before you hurl your computer out the window and fall on your knees in the rain Shawshank style screaming "ATOMIIIIIIIIIIIC!"
  • Flappy DogeFlappy Doge - A more straight-forward spin but by no means easy, RoarBoarGames delivers a meme-tastic endless arcade game that features everyone's favourite Shiba Inu. Well... almost everyone's. Just click to flap your... uh... whatever and dodge between the gaps as long as you can. You'll need split second timing, patience, and appreciation for the finer things in life, and probably some blood pressure medicine.
  • Happy BardHappy Bard - They say music soothes the savage beast, but that's only if you can get more than three cords off without exploding. Shyam Guthikonda sends you traipsing around the world (literally) as a bard spreading joy and music why trying not to hit anything. You'll unlock special hats the longer you last, because if you're going to keep restarting you might as well be stylish, and if you can survive 100 jumps, you'll get a shiny rainbow hat that you can use to dry your tears on as you nurse your mangled jumping finger.

Flappy space program was refreshing fun.
hint:

Using both ctrl-keys makes it easier to attain orbit.

Emphasis on infuriating
