To the TA community:

After being a huge fan of iOS games for over five years, I figured it was finally about time to try to make a game. My partner had never even touched a Mac before we began our project about a month ago. The crazy guy took a leap of faith and went out to buy a desktop Mac just to make games with me, after some convincing of course!

Man, we have had quite the adventure making this first game. We experimented with just about everything you could put into a simple game like this one and even had to deal with Apple for the past few weeks. Heck, our second game, which I am extremely excited about, will probably be out this week! That is how long the process for Flappy Friends! took. Nevertheless, I look forward to the next few days and weeks. We have already completed our first update, which includes a ton of updated art and visuals to make the game look much more appealing.

I have been a proud member of the TA forums for many years now. It has been my go-to place for a long time; I mean, I have over 13,000 posts here and am a moderator! Heck, I probably haven’t ever missed checking what games were going to come out on a Wednesday night.

I hope you guys will take the time to check out this first game of ours. It is not original by any means, but I think it one-ups quite a few of the the Flappy derivatives out there. We did not know the first thing about developing games for the iOS before we started, but I believe we made a pretty decent first game after a myriad of experimentation.

You can support us by doing just about anything: 1) posting in this thread, 2) sharing our game link, 3) downloading our game, 4) clicking an ad, 5) buying an in-app purchase, etc. If you do decide to take the time to download and play our game, we hope you will rate and review it. We would love to read any feedback, especially comments about the things we can improve.

Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you guys will look out for our second game too once it is out in the near future. We truly enjoyed the time we spent making these first two games.


Best,

Sean

It already looked good on the ipad but who can no to full screen. The thing that I like is you have the bird fly straight and not in a slant position I hate that so much with these games

Are you going to add some sounds like the "Yeah" in Endless Rain? I laugh still every time I hear it

Hmm haven't really thought about other custom sounds, but now that you mention it, maybe when you rez your partner in co-op we could add in a "Thanks!" or something lol.

I quite long time on this forum and your name is very known. You have cool story bro. And I'm trying to go the same way like you and your friend.

What about the game? The game as your first project is great work even if it's simply clone of flappy bird. But anyway the game has some nice features like upgrading your character and so on. It will be great if you also add different difficulty modes and some power-ups, for example extra live, teleport and something that doubled your points. Or simply add like in-app purchase the feature which will double your points.

Nice and addictive.... graphics needs some work but a good game otherwise.

Stars we collected should be a currency to buy character and hats.

Yep we made a number of changes!

-Two multiplayer modes (1v1 and Co-Op)
-Full Statistics! See your performance with each flyer!
-New difficulty progression: the game gets harder every 10 obstacles passed, and some of the crates may move! You'll probably want a friend along in co-op mode to try to get past the harder levels.

In Co-Op you can resurrect your friend after their death animation if you are alive. All they need to do is tap on their side of the screen to come back to life! As long as at least one person is alive, the game continues!

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 10:36 AM.
