Ah, Flappy Bird, the game that simple would not stop invading classic retrogaming consoles. It is quite interesting that, so far, we have not seen a release of this infuriating game on the Sega Genesis yet. It has hit nearly every other retro console out there so why has it taken so long to see the light of day on Sega’s 16-Bit console? Surely it is not lack of qualified programmers, or lack of interest- judging by the response these articles is receiving there are plenty of fans out there. Maybe it is just that the Sega Genesis, Mega Drive in this case, was a slight after thought for developers? That wouldn’t make sense since this is not a single person making all of these ports. Nah, it is probably a case of it taking this long for someone to sit back and think, “why not” and make a Genesis/Mega Drive version of Flappy Bird.
At this point it would be easier to list the consoles that Flappy Bird has not seen a release on than it would be to list the ones it has. Just for fun, and we like backlinks here, below is a list of platforms that we know of Flappy Bird seeing some kind of release on.
Atari 2600 (Flappo Bird)
Atari 2600 (Flappy)
Nintendo Game Boy
Nintendo Game Boy Advance
Nintendo Entertainment System
Nintendo Virtual Boy
Texas Instruments TI-99/4A
ZX Spectrum (Type in Program)
And now the Sega Genesis can be added to that list. That is quite a long list for a free game that “so many hate”. Someone is supporting these ports, some cost money and see physical cartridge releases even. This is not even listing all of the myriad of ports, copycats and downright ripoffs available on mobile devices.
I would show some actual footage of Flappy Bird on the Sega Genesis but the download link on PSCD is currently down (maybe too many people are downloading this game at once?). Somehow, Flappy Bird continues to find a new home to build a nest and fans keep supporting it.
So who out there is playing all of these Flappy Bird clones? I should say who else since I do play them when there is a download available, you know to verify quality and the like. Yeah, that is it. I suck at Flappy Bird by the way.
