What’s the most popular mobile game since the days of Angry Birds? The answer is obviously Flappy Bird. This addictive game has seen so many remixes, that you were able to flap the Doge, Pou, and almost everything in between. The game’s developer had his 15 minutes of fame, and many others have created entertaining clones as a result..
Since Flappy Birds is so successful, why not try making a clone yourself? It’s possible, and there are some great guides to help you do so, such as the one written by XDA Forum Member VOS. The tutorial shows how to make a Flappy Bird clone using Basic4Android and LibGDX.
Admittedly, the steps aren’t short, but it’s definitely a great way to learn how to create a simple game, making it a perfect starting point for beginning game developers. The guide itself is very detailed and describes every stage of game creation, along with the required code resources and graphics.
If you always wanted to crate your own game, you now have the perfect occasion to try. It’s not easy and will require a few somewhat advanced programming techniques. But with a bit of effort and patience, you will make your own, hopefully even more successful game. You can find more information in the original thread._________
