Apple II Game – Flapple Bird (dagenbrock.com)

I stumbled across this hosted on archive.org a while ago. Their in-browser emulator seems to work a bit better for me, so you might want to try it if you are having trouble with the version linked above: https://archive.org/details/flapple_bird_dagenbrock

I wonder if it would be practical to programmatically generate an audio file for the game so that it could be loaded straight from the web without using a disk. Similar to the Apple Game Server http://asciiexpress.net/gameserver/

Flapping doesn't seem to work.

EDIT it seems to work now. The first minute or so it was like my key-repeat was stuck on.

Is there a reason that Flapple is spelled "Flapplle" in the title screen?

I think it is a play on the IIE model of the Apple.

Most boring flappy bird clone ever =/

What's the best flappy bird imitation for those who don't have their hands on the original?

android and iphone

This seems to be one of the more inaccurate clones (gameplay wise) I've seen.
