Flappy Bird legacy continues unofficially on 3DS

Flappy Bird: PTC Edition brings the former mobile release to Nintendo 3DS using Petit Computer, a DSiWare programming app available through the 3DS eShop.

The programming tool, which launched in 2012 throughout North America, lets users create - and in this case, recreate - games using an adapted version of the classic BASIC programming language. A series of QR codes are used to begin setting up Flappy Bird for the 3DS system with the programming tool.

According to programmer "Bluerobin2" on the Petit Computer wiki, future plans for this 3DS clone could include custom modes, checkpoints and moving pipes and hills. You can try your hand at bringing Flappy Bird to the handheld system using the QR codes available here.

Since Flappy Bird's demise on mobile platforms, developers have quickly begun work on a number of games based on or inspired by the original title. The results of the so-called Flappy Jam include work from Super Hexagon's Terry Cavanagh and Canabalt creator Adam Saltsman.
