Such addiction. So Doge. Wow.
Be it Flappy Doge, Dogecoin, strangely addictive online mining simulators, or the original meme itself, DOGE is pretty much everywhere nowadays. While the aforementioned Cookie Clicker clone certainly takes care your Doge-clicking needs on a desktop computer, there hasn’t been a suitable fix for your click-based addiction on mobile. But now thanks to XDA Forum Member Krzem, you can strategically and competitively tap away at your screen for hours—all while enjoying an image of a rather confused looking Shibe Inu.
Doge Breeding builds its game play on the same click for points concept seen in Cookie Clicker and Doge Mining Simulator. But rather than creating cookies or mining for cryptocurrency, you’re breeding doge. At the start of the game, each tap of the screen results in one doge. But in addition to mindlessly tapping the screen, you can purchase a variety of power-ups with your newly bred doge that either increase your doge-per-click or your doge-per-second. Sound simple enough? Not so fast. Another level of depth comes from how every time you purchase an upgrade, buying the same power-up becomes incrementally more expensive.
If you haven’t already had enough DOGE in your life, now’s the time to get some more. Get started by making your way over to the game thread and see if you can make it onto the game’s built-in leader board.
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.
