Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
Much Flappy, So Bird–Flappy Doge Takes the Stage
Many have categorized it as an addictive nightmare. Everyone who has taken on it has fallen. The game that many have deemed as being inspired by the devil himself is here to stay. Yes, Flappy Bird, the acclaimed yet controversial new craze that has made us wish we had never downloaded the game, is here to stay (at least on Android). However, there is always someone who can take something awful and evil and make it that much worse by applying a mod or two. Ladies and gentlemen, what if I can tell you that there is a way to add yet another level of addiction with a dash of Internet pop culture to this spawn from hell? Not convinced it can get any worse? What if I give you doge mixed up with Flappy Bird?
It seems that the sudden demise of the Super Mario graphics ridden game on Apple devices has triggered a new culture of modders to come forth and revitalize the fallen angel. XDA Forum Member holabola decided to mash up the aforementioned meme with Flappy Bird, giving birth to Flappy Doge. This game is a modded version of the original, where the bird was basically replaced by an 8-bit version of the doge meme. The game and its objective does not change at all, but it is a fun and new way to punish your device for being able to run this thing. Most of the text and messages in the game have been changed to “doge style,” so expect to see some of your favorite doge-isms as you play.
As stated, the game is simply the modded original, but the dev who released this is open to suggestions on what other “fun” things could be done to improve this addictive yet nerve racking abomination. If you think you have what it takes to not want to throw your device against a wall or hit it with a blunt object, head over to the original thread and take it for a spin.
