You play as a bird (wearing a baseball cap) on a search to find a new floating island after their first one crumbles. Instead of jumping off platforms, you flap your wings in mid air to propel yourself in the direction you're aiming.

There are four levels in total.

Controls:

  • Z: Flap
  • Left / Right: Aim

The updated version has gameplay music, a revised scoring system, and some assorted other bits of polish!

You can also get it on itch.io.

Maddening but quite accurate physics. Takes a while to get use to the rotating pendulum that indicates which direction the bird should flap.

Quite a bit more control in this game then in FLAPPY. I like the depth of and the very tricky levels.

The control works great, I love it!

Would be nice with some music and a flapping sound.

Nice with different themes in each level, thunder and the big balloons :)

@dw817 Yeah it seems to vary by person how easy it is to get used to the controls. Glad you liked the levels!

@Risto Thank you!
Yeah I didn't get to even start on music until about the last hour of the jam and had 0 inspiration so that's why there isn't any, but I definitely agree the game would benefit from some. If I ever decide to revisit this in some form I definitely would add it.
Also there is in fact a flapping sound, it's just relatively quiet.

Controls take some getting used to but I like it! I wish there were more levels though.

Very nice take on the Flappy thing. Much more depth and fun to it.

Great work.

@WingedRobot @Dreemer @Roysterini Hey, thanks so much folks!
Perhaps surprisingly this wasn't actually ever intended to be a Flappy Bird-like, but apparently that's what happens when you try to make a platformer without platforms where you play as a bird flapping through the sky. But I definitely can't deny the resemblance.
