We knew it was going to happen at some point!  I do like that it uses an established Jaguar character, though.  :)

When they finish the game and release physical copies I will probably grab one. I've never played any of these Flappy clones, or the original even for that matter so I want to see what all the fuss is about!

What's the point? I don't get it!

Didn't the guy who made Flappy Bird refuse to take any more money due to embarrassment on such a poor, poor game? Why would anyone buy/play this?

People became addicted to the game and it has been ported to just about every system out there.  This is not the only port on a retro system and I doubt it'll be the last.

It was a poor "Game" but it was very popular so this was always a given.

One of the most cloned games of all time!  I really like the Trevor McFur twist.  It's interesting enough for me to try.  I actually really like The Crescent Galaxy (although it would have been a perfectly good shooter without superimposed big cat heads on everything) on my Jaguar arcade cabinet.  Most Jag games are greatly improved by using arcade controls. 

My kids also mentioned the situation with the creator of Flappy Bird.  They said he was suicidal due to people hating on his game, too!?!

Great looking port/clone anyway!  One of these days I'll have to slap a Jag CD on my system (if not just for the CD light show)...

Looks like the physical version of this is up for pre-order. Anyone interested can order  here (http://williamthorup.com/product/flappy-mcfur-boxed-cartridge-atari-jaguar-homebrew/).

I think I'm going to pass on it but it's not a bad price for those who do want a copy.

Looks fantastic, I guess [member=5476]Saturn[/member] will have 3 on order.

I'm planning on it. Ordered one for now since availability sounds like it will last a while.
The price is unbelievably low so that's a definite bonus and reason to support it. With so many projects/games raiding my bank account atm, I'm actually trying to manipulate funds to make everything work lol.
Also, holding back to go for broke on 2 other releases that should eventually happen and can't risk not going in full on when they do. Great stuff happening and just ahead! 8) 8) 8)

Been waiting ages for just an update on FM and here it is with a sudden release. Can't wait to get this plugged in and start the challenge. The demo is addictive enough so this should be a real prize for the library :D
