When I first saw the game Flappy Bird, my reaction could be perfectly described by this meme. What’s so exciting about tapping a screen like a maniac to see a flapping bird going through pipes? But I decided to play, and I realized my mistake 3 hours later. Flappy Bird is simply addictive, and it’s one of the biggest hits in mobile gaming at the moment.
If you ever wondered about modifying Flappy Bird to see some other flying objects like your XDA avatar, a ball, or other things, you should check out a great guide made by XDA Recognized Themer and Contributor PulseDroid. With this guide, even a newcomer to the development world can learn how to change the game to fit his/her flapping needs.
The tool used by PulseDroid is the well known APKTool, which offers the ability to decompile an application to smali code and recompile it back. After following a set of simple instructions, your flying object will be the only one of its kind. The process is pretty simple and should not take more than 10 minutes if you have already made your replacement graphics.
You can get started by visiting the guide thread. So go there and customize your game experience._________
