Flapthulhu Gets Even Better With Addition Of Shoggoth And New Battle Mode



Of the endless barrage of clones that emerged after Flappy Bird’s surprise success, Flapthulhu is the one that I go back to over and over again. Not only is it a clever parody of both the works of H.P. Lovecraft and the Flappy Bird phenomenon in general, but it’s a genuinely better game than Flappy Bird, with a subverseive sense of humor, fantastic 8-bit style graphics great style. Now, Flapthulhu has gotten better thanks to a version 2.0 update, which adds to major new features.

The first is a new flappy creature, Shoggoth, a floating Eldritch horror who controls very differently than Flapthulhu himself. There’s also a new battle mode in which you need to kill other Lovecraftian monsters by swooping down on them from above.

Both Shoggoth and the new Battle Mode can be purchased in-game, but refreshingly, not as in-app purchases, but rather using a virtual currency of skulls that can be found over the course of your escape from R’lyeh. Flapthulhu remains free on the App Store, so grab it now: you won’t regret it.

    I think I understand how this works, it basically bounces from phone to phone(device to device) until it reaches a internet connection to go out into the inter webs. Cool! But wouldn’t this destroy the end persons data cap / data plan? So if I was the person living on the edge of town with a junk 2gb plan, barely getting 2 bar 3G in a few days my plan would go belly up because every person living in a non cell area would end up onto my pipe to the web. (Assuming everyone has this app installed)
