Click here to play Flappy Benj!

One day I was noodling about on my phone, when suddenly I had an idea. An idea for a videogame. A completely original, ground breaking idea for a videogame. Deciding this was probably the kind of idea that could net me in the region, of, let’s say,$50,000 in ad revenue per day, I fired up Unity and proceeded to fail vigorously at coding for a long time.

Thankfully I found this helpful tutorial that just so happened to guide me through making a game very similar to my brilliant, original idea.

So here it is, my first venture into Unity development. I’ve dedicated it to Benji, a cat who always loved flying, but really hated pipes. Thanks go to quill18 for his helpful Flappy Bird tutorial, and to the guys at Unity who offer an admirably robust set of learning tools to help out even the rankest coding amateur.

Also thanks to Oscar the cat, and his owner Department64 who uploaded the sounds of Oscar the cat to Freesound.org.

So click here to enjoy the fruits of my labour. Post your high scores. My current record is a staggering 43. See if you can beat that before the sound effects drive you mad.

If you can’t play the game you might need to download the Unity Web Player, which is here.

You have to not hit the ground or the pipes. I mean, you probably know how this works by now, right?
