Flapping Bird Kick! 'Street Flapper' mixes Street Fighter with Flappy Bird in all new, free iOS app that looks cooler than it sounds

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • April 4, 2014 at 10:58 a.m. PDT
Well, we all knew it was only a matter of time...

If you haven't been living under a rock for the past year, chances are you've heard of an app called Flappy Bird. It's a game that puts you in the driver's seat, and lets you control a small, round bird with the touch of the screen. The goal is to navigate through obstacles formed of green pipes from the Super Mario Bros. series, and try to get the highest score. (I'm not making this up.)

Now, a new, free app has hit the market, only this time it is Street Fighter 2 themed. "Street Flapper" mixes classic sounds, sprites, and backgrounds from SF2 with the foundation of Flappy Bird.

Although this may look like a lawsuit waiting to happen, the iTunes description states that there is absolutely no monetization or advertising going on here, and that Street Flapper is just a silly, fan-made project for people to enjoy. The description goes on to say that if Capcom requests the app be removed, it will be taken down.

The new app is available for iPhone and iPad, and you can find all the information you need on Street Flapper by hitting the link. Ffeel free to let us know if you try it out for yourself.

I like how each character floats and falls at a different speed rate. Tier list coming soon? Kappa

It'd be nice if they used more than just the SF2 characters, i'd love to go at a course as Dan.. I wonder if they'd take him seriously and have him do Dans, or if they allow him to Jump Taunt his way passed the obstacles

Chun Li is the best. No, seriously.

I just finished watching a Flappy Bird video like 5mins ago. Weird, this must really be a "Ghost of Flappy Bird."

Is Chun-li saying "Kickstarter!"? Lol.

actually Blanka and Sagat are the easiest ones because they occupy less room. Guile's flash kick has a few invincibility "hit frames"(no collision) during flash kick.

Lol, grabbed this and I love it.

Chun and Sagat top tier easily.

Ryu and Ken are beyond difficult lol. They fly all over the place!

She'd break the game simply because she could hold a charge and phase through the limbs.

Bison: Ryu, Guile, Chun Li, Guile, Chun Li, Ryu Akuma: Bison, Sagat, Guile, Chun Li, Ryu, Ken. Warning they are beyond impossible to use! They both have a weird double-tap for their devil reverse and demon flips.

#26
Quezacoatl said on April 4, 2014 at 4:57 p.m.

They are actually really easy to use when you get the hang of it (takes like, 2 games)

Chun > Akuma/Bison > Guile/Blanka/Honda > Sagat/Ken > Ryu

He must have godlike aim if he can manage to do that while your character is infinite jumping like an idiot.

Btw this is my first time seeing any gameplay of Flappy Bird and similar things and honestly that was pretty boring to watch in my opinion..

Oh man, remember when they made games without save points and then gave you limited lives?

Games from my childhood were hellish. It's a wonder I'm not psychotic.
