Reviews for "FlapBound"

If Flappy Bird and Earthbound had a baby, this is definitely what it should look like. The background graphics are amazing and the music is good on all the levels. Adding bonus levels as presents was cool, and pencils/pencil erasers were a great add-on the mechanics of Flappy Bird. My only complaint was that no other levels had the level of detail as did Onett. Why doesn't Saturnville have a hotsprings? This no Kay-O!

Really, though, this was cool, albeit short. 4 stars.

I hate flappy bird, but I totally love your game. Fix those laggy levels, but everything else is perfect. The music, the graphics 10/10 Don't make it harder as I read someone suggested, I think big numbers are ok and probably make you enjoy the game even if you can't make it to the high scores :)

I've gotten a few reports of lag, but I haven't experienced any myself. I'm not quite sure what could cause it to happen, even after playing the game for half an hour and keeping an eye on the framerate, CPU and memory usage. If anyone has more information on when and where the game lags, that would be really useful. Is it just on the levels with the trippy backgrounds? Browser and Flash version might also be useful to know.

Thanks for playing.

This is actually a really sweet take on Flappy Bird.
Props for making such an awesome Earthbound themed game.
It makes me want to go play it again on the SNES, well done :D
Keep up the great work!

I really enjoyed the game a lot. This is a very creative mash-up between Flappy Bird and Earthbound. The only issue I found was the recurring waves of lag which were really overwhelming at some points.
Music: awesome (great job with these remixes!)
Gameplay: good.
Difficulty: It was hard, but not as hard as the original due to the fact that the houses had slanted edges which made it easier to maneuver.
Overall I think 4/5 stars. Keep it up and good luck in the future!!

(regarding the lag issue: I played in Chrome (v.33) and Firefox (v.27) and experienced lag in both. A lot less in Firefox, In chrome I couldn't even play at 1tt without lag in every flap. I found 4 levels/maps And the laggiest was Tech, Followed by Peach. I'm using a Windows 7 Starter Laptop [dunno if this info helps at all])

I don't give a rip about flappy bird, but i played this just to see how deep into earthbound it referenced. As soon as i saw "lost all motivation in battle" I had to definitely comment on how cool this was
