    Introducing a port of a 6-year-old game to a 14-year-old console that nobody asked for...

    Flappy Bird DS


    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    For fun, I remade Flappy Bird for the Nintendo DS using libnds and NightFox's Lib. My goal was to remake the game as accurately as possible, so it has most of the features that the original game has, like this intuitive splashscreen on startup:

    Crazy, right? :rolleyes:


    Download


    If you're somehow interested in trying this clone for yourself, you can download it here (direct GBATemp link). You can alternatively get the game on my itch.io page!


    And if you want to know how I went about creating this game, I made a video explaining the entire process!




    I hope someone finds enjoyment out of this, or, at the very least is inspired by it to make a DS game!

    Awesome. I'll give this a try later.

    I've actually never played the original, but having a portable version is reason enough to finally try it.

    This is really impressive! It launches fine from TWiLight Menu on my DSi. Is the source available? It seems like this would be a nice framework for others to toy around with getting other simple homebrew games going.

    I won't be releasing the source for this game, since, as it was my first attempt at making a DS game, there are definitely things I could have done better (ex: NFLib has a sprite move function, but instead of using it I redraw sprites and reset their properties every frame) and I don't want to misdirect any newcomers.

    I plan on releasing the source for all of my future DS homebrew projects though, which will probably be easier to learn from :)
