Introducing Flappy Mac!

A New Game for Vintage 68k Macs!



What is Flappy Mac?

Flappy Mac is a new fast action arcade game written in C and designed for vintage 68k Macintosh computers. It supports both 1-bit and 8-bit graphics. 

It's free to download and play!

This game features 10 unlockable characters, several scenarios, and a ton of fun sound effects! Can you score 100 points and become a master of Flappy Mac?

How to Play:

Click to Flap! Don't crash your Mac!


Smooth Sailing! - Flappy Mac Color



I crashed my Mac... - Flappy Mac Black & White


Recommended System Requirements:

Mini vMac or Mini vMac II variation (for color!) emulators. Tested on System 6.0.8, 7.1 and 7.5.x. I recommend using System 7.5.5. I have included a bootable disk image for emulators.

For a good time, set emulator speed to ‘All out’. (Hold Ctrl-S then press A)

Real Hardware Requirements:

68020 or later. Ideally a Mac SE/30 or Quadra, but the LC or Mac II line of computers would be other good choices! It flies on my PPC Macs!


Minimum System Requirements:

8mhz 68000 w/ 1MB RAM running System 4 or later. (Plus, Classic, SE) Game runs at a reduced speed, but is still playable.

Sound doesn’t work correctly in System 4, but the game will run. Use System 6 or 7.

The sound is not compatible with some CPU upgrade cards.


Why did I make this?

This was a fun 2 week long project to learn about classic Macintosh programming. There's a lot that goes into the production of classic Macintosh apps, and I found it fun to learn how to put one together. 

I grew up with the Mac and it is sad to see how very non-existent the software support is for these oldest Mac systems. Most other retro computer platforms still get new games - now it's the Mac's turn!

LIMITED FLOPPY DISK RELEASE!

I'm putting out a limited number of physical floppy disks that contain the game + the source code & assets. You can see how I put this together with my fully (hilariously) commented source files!

 I'm doing these by hand and not a lot will be produced.
