Default Not a Sequel: Flappy Bird Jr.

I can guarantee you won't regret it. You know you want to. And all of the un-original clones are making me angry.

Cheers,
Big Z.

With that quote, I downloaded this eager to experience what's next in the flappy genre. I knew I'd be looking at something groundbreakingly original.

Wait...

What exactly makes this one any different than the other clones? So far the closest thing to original I've seen is a Dikembe mutumbo and a Simon cowell cutout talking crap to you when you die. There's only two cutouts which repeat their self over-and-over.

Let me just name a few apps off of the top of my head and let's see what the relation between all of them is, shall we? Brave Bird, Splashy Fish, Flappy Dragon, Flappy Bird, Flappy Wings, Floppy Bird, Flap Bird Forever, Impossible Bird. Have you guessed it yet? That's right, clones. An app that appears to be a copy of an original form.

Yes, that is correct, it is in fact original. I'm guessing you've never heard of a parody before? Because that is exactly what the game is. Hence the title, "Not a Sequel." And the parodical commentary from the characters? Flying pizzas? Giant Bananas? Well, I'll let you figure out the rest.

I guess so. But I appreciate your 2 cents.

A parody is an exaggeration of a specific style or genre or work. What here has been exaggerated? So the name isn't Flappy or Bird and there are some figures that talk shit, but...that's it. The gameplay is still just Flappy Bird. The gameplay remains unchanged from the original. Dressing up the gameplay in a new skin and some other extraneous elements doesn't change that

You're absolutely correct. The gameplay is exactly the same, aside from the addition of the food for extra points, and it's supposed to be. Differing gameplay isn't what would make a parody, a parody. It would make it a whole different game. Just like if Weird Al Yankovic would not have used instrumental versions of popular songs, it would not have been a parody, it would be a completely different song haha. So I don't understand your logic here. But I guess that's your opinion, and you are fully entitled to it.

Cheers

I got to a agree with the others, it's not much different from the hundres of other apps all claiming to be original or a parody.
Not saying yours is bad, just that I don't think it's anything new or original.

To each their own. My intentions we're never to make another clone, but it appears that others view it as one.
