One creative Overwatch player has made a clone of the popular mobile game Flappy Bird using Overwatch’s new Workshop mode.
Flappy Bird was the most-downloaded game in the Apple Apps Store during 2014 and for a brief moment it was the game everyone seemed to be playing.
Now Reddit user Thriver9 has created a perfect clone of the game inside of Overwatch’s new Workshop mode for players to try out.
In the minigame players play as Pharah (who else?) and just like the mobile version have to make their way through a series of gaps in “pipes” to get a higher and higher score.
As players get through more and more gaps, the sidescrolling movement speeds up, just like in the real Flappy Bird game.
Thriver9 didn’t explicitly mention if “Flappy Pharah” was endless, but based on their comments about the mode it seems to be enough that players will be able to go as long as they want to (or can).
For players interested in trying out Thriver9’s Flappy Bird clone in the Overwatch Workshop, the code is: 4QY7N.
Workshop Mode: the best thing to happen to Overwatch?
Overwatch’s new Workshop mode was introduced on April 24 and creative players have already come out with a mountain of new game modes, minigames and even heroes and abilities since it was released.
Games like CS:GO, Rainbow 6 Siege and even skill trainers for players to improve their aim have been made and it shows no sign of slowing down soon.
For now the Workshop is still on Overwatch’s Public Test Region, which means it’s only available to PC players at the moment.
The Overwatch team has said they intend to take the feature live for console players to have access as well, but for now we don’t have any information about when that might happen.
Update - Flappy Pharah Multiplayer
The creator of Flappy Pharah has now produced a multiplayer version supporting up to six Pharahs, so players that want to challenge their friends to see who can last longest in the mode can now go head-to-head directly.
The green "pipes" will continue to appear with random configurations for as long as at least one player can keep going, with the difficulty increasing as the game speeds up the longer it goes on.
The share code for the multiplayer version of Flappy Pharah is P3DNC.
