‘Flappy Bird’ Spoof, ‘Hodappy Bird,’ Soars In Pakistan And Kuwait

The Flappy Bird craze continues. While mobile users anxiously wait for Dong Nguyen to re-release his popular game, which won’t be anytime soon, Eli Hodapp, editor-in-chief for TouchArcade, has released his own version onto Apple’s App Store.

Hodappy Bird is just like Flappy Bird, but with Hodapp as the main character.The goal is for users try to get past pipes and collect bitcoins against a Chicago background. Of course, the bitcoins aren’t real and can’t be used for anything outside of the game, about which players are warned before they proceed.

In an email interview with Cult of Mac, Hodapp said the Flappy Bird spoof was developed by Paul Pridham over the course of one weekend. He is not making any statement about the Flappy Bird craze with the creation and release of his game.

“The fact of the matter is I have a silly sense of humor and very dumb things make me laugh,” he said.

He even wrote a fake review of the Flappy Bird spoof on TouchArcade, and awarded it the site’s “most coveted rating ever” of 20 golden nuggets.

“The entire point of Hodappy Bird is to just be silly as it’s been a running joke on the podcast and on our Twitch streams forever,” he noted after the game review.
