Flappy Whale v1.3.0 (Animated Whale)

It has taken us this long but our Flappy Whale is now actually flapping when you tap :D Play the game and check it out yourself by clicking on the show button below!

We toyed between the idea of having the Whale constantly flapping or having it flap only when you tapped. In the end we liked having it flap whenever you tapped as it provided extra positive feedback to the player. Note the Whale will remain stationary as it plummets, reinforcing the need to tap/flap.

Animating the Whale and the glowing rocks has really given me a profound respect for the intricacies involved in animation. It's fun to see how a handful of static images can produce motion but incredibly painful to tweak all the timings to produce the perfect effect.

Flappy Whale v1.2.0 (Pulsating Rocks! - ewry games)

We have decided to pivot and changed the flying obstacles to floating rocks :D. Try to enjoy the gentle pulsating glow of the rocks without crashing right into them! Click the show button below to launch the game.

We're starting to wrap up the game now and there are only a few more visual items we need to tweak. Depending on feedback I may ramp up the difficulty for the Killer mode as well :P

Note that I've bumped the resolution and changed the aspect ratio to make the game better suited to modern displays :) The scrolling background is very simple but I was very pleased with how easy it was to put together. We are definitely going to start polishing everything a lot more, our current targets are:

  • Introduce new difficulty modes
  • Update the whale graphics
  • Add new fonts
