Of all the Flappy Bird duplicates cluttering the App Store right now, simply a portion of those games is in fact usable– meaning that they’re totally practical and could be made use of without glitches, slowdown, or outright collisions. Of that tiny group, there is but one that I have actually located which is worth your time: Ironpants.


Ironpants plays nearly specifically like Flappy Bird with the only genuine distinction being that you hold your finger on the screen (as opposed to get) to obtain your tiny superhero to fly greater. You still should browse with slim passages without touching anything, the game takes place for life similar to Flappy Bird, and it’s likewise punishingly tough.

As a matter of fact, Ironpants could be even much more difficult compared to the game on which it is based, which’s stating something. The tiny onscreen character moves a bit a lot faster compared to the titular avian in Flappy Bird, and due to that it’s much tougher to make adjustments just before pounding into a wall. My high score on Flappy Bird is a reputable 51, yet I could simply manage a 6 on Ironpants. It’s that hard.

To be completely clear: If Flappy Bird were still on the App Store, I ‘d most likely not suggest looking into Ironpants because it is indeed the substandard item. Nevertheless, with Flappy Bird’s developer guaranteeing to never ever re-publish the game after he removed it from the App Store, it’s the only halfway respectable alternative presently readily available.
