Flappy48 mixes Flappy Bird and 2048, will give you something to complain about this afternoon

Flappy Bird and 2048 inspired game will teach us about the birds and the bricks.

Remember how much you hated Flappy Bird? Do you also remember how you played 2048 non-stop for a few days until you realised it was a clone of superior mobile puzzler Threes? Good news! Now you can burn through your afternoon slump by playing Flappy48.

Flappy48 can be played in a browser (with the Unity web player installed) or downloaded via the Google Play store, and has your little 2 tile leaping between pipes and bumping into other numbers, which will combine if it's a multiple of two. Not a multiple? Then the blocks start to add up.

It's really hard. My highest score is eight.

But has this product of two clones already been cloned itself? Enter: Flappy 2048. The game starts you out as a particularly flappy 2 tile, and you must glide your way through the course while colliding with the right multiple at every junction. I'm not sure if it's possible to finish it, because I haven't reached the 2048 tile yet.

It's quite easy to get 32 000 whatever tile in Flappy 2048

It's rather fun... For 5 minutes... Not as hard as either games... Plus, 2048 was fun.. I remember having a party when I managed to get the 4096 block.. Was my favourite moment as a "Mobile" gamer

I think that was a complaint about us complaining so much in the comments. Let me try the opposite:

Oh, Flappy Bird and 2048 are such great games and now they've merged. What a delightful experience!

So much heavy handed throwing around of the term 'hate' these days. I don't hate Flappy Bird, I just didn't bother to play it. I dislike it and I think it is stupid, but I don't sit around yelling about it and getting all pissed off about it. I save my actual hate for terrorists, rapists, those who force children and young adults into prostitution and drug addiction, murderers, politicians and so forth. Disliking something does not equal hate. But I know everybody thinks it sounds cool to throw around the word 'hater' for such mundane things as this lame game.


You were right and wrong GS, you gave me something to complain about this afternoon but it was not the actual game itself.

Two false statements. You suck.

I thought this was referencing WipEout 2048 at first.

That's disrespectful Martin, I am fully capable of complaining in the morning, I don't need no afternoon.

What the fuck is 2048?


...BESIDES the number of MB in 2GB.  :P

Wow, I really do feel like complaining about this.

1. It's shit.

@Adam_Orth  I was going to reply to this with something, then I saw your username, then I spat out my coke. Now I'm cleaning that up.

@allyouneedisluv @DrKill09  

There is 2,048mb in 2GB's. :/

No, there's 2048 MB......................

Most people just round it up like that .

@brxricano @martingaston @allyouneedisluv @kerrman  Sorry pal, I've had a long afternoon and I'm spent. It took me about 15 minutes to come up with the 'birds and the bricks' bit. That was the last of my creative energies. I need a nice buttery crumpet to get my pep back.

@Adam_Orth No, mega is a prefix for a multiplication by one million, end of story. Yes, it's useless while talking about memory but that changes nothing.

@faizanhd @allyouneedisluv  

It amazes how much ignorance there is here.

Only on Windows does 2GB = 2048MB, and for RAM maybe, and that's only because they show GB but they mean GiB.

On other OS and for hard drive manufacturers, 2GB = 2000MB.

That's why on Windows the size of the hard drive is less than it says on the box.

Windows confuses everyone because of that.

@allyouneedisluv @DrKill09  Just because you made a webpage once doesn't make you a programmer.

If you were it is likely your wouldn't need to quote Wikipedia to start with, you'd just type it from memory.

@Adam_Orth  tranfers speed are differentials of time, do you see any measurements of time.


Your argument is invalid. 

DrKill09

@Adam_Orth  Yep, there are people out there that don't know the difference.


But then again, his source was wikipedia.

@allyouneedisluv  No confusion at all.  1GB is 1024MB.  They even teach that in college in basic computer courses.


Also, your source was wikipedia, lol!  :P


God, I make a lame joke, and this guy gets a bug up his ass.

@allyouneedisluv  

You are using transfer speeds to make you point, when he used mb's, not megabits. you are wrong. It's 1000 megebits, but it is 1024 megabytes

Base 10 definition[edit]

1 GB = 1000000000 bytes (= 10003 B = 109 B) is the definition recommended by the International System of Units (SI) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).[2] This definition is used in networking contexts and most storage media, particularly hard drives, Flash-based storage,[3][4] and DVDs, and is also consistent with the other uses of the SI prefix in computing, such as CPU clock speeds or measures of performance. The Mac OS X file manager from version 10.6 and higher is a notable example of this usage in software. Since Snow Leopard, file sizes are reported in decimal units.[5]

Base 2 definition[edit]

1 GiB = 1073741824 bytes (= 10243 B = 230 B) is the definition used by Microsoft Windows in reference to computer memory (e.g., RAM). This definition is synonymous with the unambiguous IEC standard name gibibyte.


I understand your confusion. 


Is a misconception between GiB and GB
