What do you get one you combine two of the internet’s most popular games; Flappy Bird and Wordle? Well, you get Flappy Birdle – the latest in a long line of Wordle spinoffs. It combines the speed of Flappy Bird and the accuracy of Wordle in order to score big points. Unlike Wordle, Flappy Birdle gives you unlimited plays. How else would we lie about how many tries it took us to get the word right? Because we totally beat Flappy Birdle.
“Yeah, we beat Flappy Birdle“
Flappy Birdle is simple. Or rather, simple to learn. Mastery of Flappy Birdle isn’t something that comes naturally. It requires practice. It requires dedication. And, as we said, multiple attempts. Start a game as you would with any Wordle – by choosing a starting letter. Straight away, you’ll begin to see some differences to your casual game of Wordle. For one, the accompanying Flappy Bird takes off, kicking your mind into hyperdrive. To keep the Flappy Bird ‘alive’, it’ll need the next letters of your five-letter Wordle. Whether they’re wrong or not makes no difference to Flappy Birdle.
After the first five letters (spelling mistakes and repeatedly incorrect letters are allowed), the completed word will flash which letters are right and in the correct place (green), which are correct but in the wrong place (yellow), and anything left over is greyed out. With that knowledge, you can start your second word. That’s it. Keep the bird flapping until it either falls out of the sky, or you guess the correct word. But you’ll have to keep guessing, more or less as fast as you’re able to type.
You won’t succeed on your first try. You won’t succeed on your second try. Actually, you may never succeed. But there’s no harm in trying over and over again.
If you do eventually defeat Flappy Birdle and suddenly feel like you could take on anything, turn on hard mode. It makes the Flappy Bird move faster and hit the ground quicker, and turns the green pipes into more than the decorations they are in easy mode. Oh, and guesses will be limited to six. If that’s just too difficult, it may be time to head back to easy mode.
