Twitterrific 5 Updated With A Flappy Bird Mini-Game

OllieSoars

Did you miss the Flappy Bird phenomenon?

Well, if you’re a Twitterific user, no need to download one of the seemingly infinite number of clones: an Easter egg within the popular Twitter app lets you play a great 8-bit Flappy Bird clone with just a gesture.

Called Ollie Soars and featuring the official Twitterific mascot, the minigame is accessed in app just by dragging your timeline all the way down.

Once you’re in the game, you play until you die, and then can tweet your high score from within the app. It’s actually a harder game than Flappy Bird, if you can imagine such a thing. How high a score can you get?

If you don’t already own Twitterific 5, it can be purchased on the App Store for just $2.99.

    I think this is just Twitterrific’s lame attempt at getting more users. I dumped Twitterrific because the company just doesn’t care about the Mac version anymore and Twitter’s own native iOS app has a far better user interface / user experience.
