Flappy 48 is as Frustrating as Flappy Bird and 2048 Combined

Flappy Bird is an maddeningly addictive, yet infuriatingly frustrating game. You know what else can be described by those adjectives? 2048. So naturally, it was only a matter of time before somebody combined the two, right?

Now thanks to XDA Senior Member sylsau, you can flap your way to 2048 rather than bothering with addition and complicated strategies. Flappy 48 works just like any other Flappy Birds clone. Simply tap the screen to make your tile flap its way up the screen, but watch out for the walls above and below the opening. With each passing barrier, your tile increases in number. And just like 2048, your goal is to eventually reach 2048.

To give Flappy 48 a shot, head over to the game thread and see how long you can last. And if you’re looking for another Flappy Birds vs. 2048 mashup that actually incorporates the mechanics of both games, head over to this other take on the concept on Google Play.
