Flappy Bird: Code Your Own Flappy Game [Tutorial]

February 26, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Flappy Bird was hugely popular and addicting.

A coding organization–Seattle-based code.org–is giving people the opportunity to code their own flappy game.

“Flappy Bird recently met its untimely death. We might’ve been tempted to cry all day and give up on spreading computer science (not really, but R.I.P Flappy Bird),” the organization said on its blog.

“But we just crossed two huge milestones today: On our one-year anniversary, we hit 1 billion lines of code written by students on Code.org! So instead, we built a new drag-and-drop tutorial that lets you build your own Flappy game – whether it’s Flappy Bird, or Flappy Easter Bunny, Flappy Santa, Flappy Shark with Lasers, Flappy Fairy or Flappy Underwater Unicorn.”

The website’s eight step tutorial is here.

The tutorial and finished games can run on a tablet or browser and games can be shared on Facebook and Twitter and played within the social networks.
