The Flappy Bird sensation is not yet dead, and might live on through handhelds. If you're looking to get your fix, or you're curious what all the buzz is about, you're now able to look to the 3DS and DSi, where fan Bluerobin2 recreated Flappy Bird.
Now named Flappy Bird - PTC Edition, Bluerobin2 replicated the Flappy Bird experience using a DSiWare programming tool named "Petit Computer" and added the ability to flap using actual buttons on the handheld in addition to using the "classic" touch mode. Unlike creator Dong Nguyen, this fan is willing to expand the game's features to include checkpoints or other ideas that someone happens to come up with.
It may not be an iPhone, but at least you won't have to bid over $50,000 on eBay to find a phone with Flappy Bird installed if you really want to play it.
Overnight iOS success story Flappy Bird was taken down earlier this week after creator Nguyen apparently decided the game was too addicting, and he didn't want to change his whole life around to continue maintaining it. Raking in an estimated $50,000 a day from ads in Flappy Bird alone would be a pretty solid reason for other app developers to quit their day jobs, but not Nguyen.
