Remember when Doom porting to obscure systems was a thing? You were only a true nerd once you had Doom running on your Ti-83. Now it’s Flappy Bird as witnessed by this C64 port.

As the product page notes, the game was coded by a Vietnamese developer, .Gears, and later ported to C64 by an indie game dev, Sos.

The overnight rise and demise of Flappy Bird only increases the app’s draw. It’s a dumb game, sure. My top score is just 17. But that’s part of the desire. I for one sleep well at night knowing there are at least several developers out there keeping the legend of the Flappy Bird alive by porting it to obsolete platforms.
