Floppy Bird is a
clone of the infamous Flappy Bird written in
16 bit (x86) assembly.
In other words it works on RAW METAL and doesn't require an underlying operating system, it is an operating system on its own.
If you just want to try it out there's no need to install the development tools because you can use one of the provided 'disk images'.
However, if you really want to 'compile' it yourself then you'll need to install the following tools:
- NASM (required)
- QEMU (optional, needed for testing)
- GIMP (optional, needed for altering "graphics")
To build it just type in any terminal:
make make iso
build/floppybird.img- Image for Floppy / USB Drives
build/floppybird.iso- for CD-ROM Drives (with Floppy Emulation)
QEMU and VirtualBox have been tested and fully supported.
qemu-system-i386 -boot a -fda build/floppybird.img

BE SURE TO BACKUP THE CONTENTS OF YOUR FLOPPY/USB DRIVE.
Linux/Mac (in other words *unix)
You can use the
dd utility or your favorite CD Burner like
dd if=build/floppybird.img of=/dev/sdb
In the example above,
/dev/sdb is your USB Drive.
It is also possible to run
Floppy Bird as a regular
.COM executable in any
DOS-like environment, like DOSBox for instance.
To build it type:
And then to run it type:
Note: Make sure to set the cycles to a reasonable value like 10000 for an enjoyable experience.
