Flappy Bird is now playable in Minecraft



The sandbox game that is Minecraft has spawned many incredible creations. Examples include a recreation of the Starship Enterprise, the space shuttle on its launch pad, and a functioning 16-bit computer. There’s even a playable Sonic the Hedgehog mini game.

With the latest craze surrounding Flappy Bird, it was inevitable that someone would take the time to recreate the game in Minecraft. So if you are getting little bit bored playing Minecraft you can now go and get frustrated playing the infuriatingly hard and addictive Flappy Bird rather than, say, logging out and going for a walk.



The creator, going by the name of Nick_Azn on Planet Minecraft, said he made the game because he was bored. He hadn’t seen any other implementations of Flappy Bird in Minecraft, so decided to have a go at making one himself. He succeeded, even to the point where your character has to keep tapping a button to make the bird fly. As for the level layouts, they are randomly generated, so you’ll get a new challenge every time you hit a pipe and die.

In order to play Flappy Bird in Minecraft you’ll need to be running at least version 1.80 otherwise half the map won’t appear. Then it’s just a case of downloading the map and saving it to your Minecraft saves folder. Reloading the game should then make it available to play.

Nick’s version is marked as completed, but I doubt this will be the last Flappy Bird recreation we see in Minecraft. I’m expecting a much larger scale version to appear, and possibly even one that uses AI to train and play itself.
