Epic Games’ Releases Tappy Chicken: Flappy Bird Clone Created in Unreal Engine 4
There’s a point to it though, we promise.
You’ll find tons of clones for Flappy Bird across the Google Play Store and Apple iTunes but Tappy Chicken is something completely different. It’s still a clone but it comes by way of Epic Games. It was also created using Unreal Engine 4. The kicker? It was created by an employee artist who had no coding experience at all.
“Tappy Chicken is the perfect showcase for the ease of use and flexibility of Unreal Engine 4. While it may not flex the full graphical muscle of the engine, it shows how almost anyone can make a fun and pretty game fit for mobile devices and web browsers,” said Epic Games. That’s certainly an excellent point to make.
Tappy Chicken is currently available for iOS and Android while a browser version is also planned. Have you played it and what are your thoughts on the ease of us with Unreal Engine 4? Let us know in the comments.
