There are two C64 versions (one by Roy Fielding who was interviewed in RG recently) and a Vectrex version too.

That's a tricky question that philosophers have debated over for decades. I'm confident that Flappy Bird does not hold the answer.

But its a nice easy project that requires minimal skill to put together and needs very little in the way of graphics or audio resources.

Also, I found it very interesting that I could mimic flappy bird in 98 lines of Sinclair basic!!
