Flappy Herbie PlayBook

For you folk that are still rocking a BlackBerry PlayBook you may well want to grab some flappy action thanks to Flappy Herbie Saga: Trolls Of The Forest. We recently announced that the Flappy Birds spin off was available for BlackBerry 10 and it has now made its way over to the BlackBerry tablet. 

Priced at £1.50/$1.99 it's a bit more pricey than the free version on BlackBerry 10, but for you flappy addicts I suspect that playing the game on the 7 inch tablet will be a whole lot more fun. 

If you recognize Herbie it's because he's the star of FlyCraft - also available for the PlayBook and BlackBerry 10 devices. In my opinion, Flappy Herboie is a much better game than the original Bird one, but whether you are willing to part with your cash for the PlayBook edition is your call. 

And before you ask - no, you can't have my Herbie mug! 

Features of Flappy Herbie include:

  • Simple one touch controls so you can play anywhere and single-handedly 
  • Featuring the hero from the award winning game FlyCraft
  • Share your scores on Facebook
  • Sweet graphics
  • Collect red life gems
  • Use Life Gems to continue from where you died
  • Relaxing Zen quotes and music for calming down when feeling the need to throw your phone on the wall

Hit up BlackBerry World on your PlayBook to download Flappy Herbie

Good thing for playbook users.

So what about that mug, James?

TightDebbie

If everyone supposedly agrees that the PlayBook is dead, why does this post even exist?

Either update the PlayBook, support it and carry on, or stop the publicity stunts with the PlayBook.

This doesn't make sense....none at all

You do understand developers can release apps for the PlayBook if they want right? This has nothing to do with BlackBerry or publicity.

Hey tightdebbie, I think you're pants are a little too tight.

Everyone + supposedly?? Hmm nope, I don't agree with you at all. PB isn't dead. No huge updates will come to it anymore, but dead? I turned mine on this morning. Looked quite alive to me!

If you already have a BB10 phone and a screen size fit for you, that makes sense.

For other with only a Playbook and another phone or a small Q10 screen, they might prefer playing on their tablet.

Awesome! First new app in a while for my PB, or should I say my wife's Pinterest server.

My wife's hogging mine for some portable TV app, and uses it as her portable flatscreen on her lap.

iPhone for me? Scr... ahem Q that! (posted from the latter)

Nice to see it being used. It really is/ was the perfect from factor for surfing, reading etc on bed and couch. Full size tabs are too big n heavy for that.

The playbook still gets love? Didn't think they had it in them anymore.

Well as much as I feel $1.99 is steep, picked it up anyway to show support.

Yeah we PlayBook fans got it raw last year but there's as much life left in it as people want there to be.

You may also be interested in the original Flappy Bird game which is available for free for the PlayBook from the Good eReader app store.

May be, but to me the graphic presentation and smoothness of play are better on this dev's app. I'll support BlackBerry devs.

Thanks dev!
I didn't think you'd really do it. Will most definitely support you on this.

Thank you guys for the support! PlayBook is a great piece of hardware, and Herbie looks so great on its big screen. It is so sad that BlackBerry decided to drop support for it. I wish it would make sense to get it out for free, but the PlayBook user numbers can't really support the freemium model. So I had to make a choice of either not supporting it at all, or make it paid. I hope you agree I did the right thing!

Happy flapping!

Thank you

Hmm now if only Clash of Clan was available on the PlayBook ....

Yes I know we would need BB10, but one can dream. Oh well...

Why are they charging for a playbook app? That's just mess up!

Aljean Thein

Do you not read the comments? The dev just explained it above you

craigdh1

Most of the time.... But if I'm working, no :)

AWB70

Couple or three things worth mentioning here.
Firstly, I didn't think that every one agrees the PlayBook is "supposedly dead" I think you might be confusing it with blackberry not making tablets anymore.

Secondly the use of the term "finished " it is finished as far as we know although no one has officially said as such. In a way it is finished, same way my cars finished, my tvs finished and so is the wall a round my garden. It does what it's meant to do. Plenty would say it could be better including me but I could also say the same thing about my car, my tv and the garden wall. I can't see anyone coming out to improve any of them anytime soon.

Finally, really appreciate the love from devs and if they want to charge to take the time and effort to include playbook users in current titles then fair play to them. Max respect from me and I'll follow their work.

Also nice find flappy bird on ereader. Didn't know it was on there. More of my life to waste :)

Very well written AWB70.

Ya.....I've heard this story before from other developers. You're not the first one! Yes I appreciate your attempt to support PlayBook. However, I've purchased other apps in the past only to find I never get any updates. I don't think I'll be spending anymore money on PlayBook. I have no idea what you're trying to accomplish, unless you know something about the future of PlayBook that CB members don't know. In the meantime, I'll buy a Large Coffee at Tim Horton's instead.

Cheers!!

Buh bye now and enjoy your cup of Joe while others enjoy the game on their PB.

I don't know about others but this one is going to have a very nice update soon! Stay tuned! ;)

Puz_zled

Some devs commit to a platform and others don't. Harkal has and I'll support his work......AND go to Tim's tomorrow....I support their work too vs. other coffee purveyors.

Karan Mohal

What do you mean you don't know what the dev is trying to accomplish? He set out to make a game for the playbook, and then he made it. Pretty clear to me!

Support your developers if you want more apps, people. He gave it to you for FREE on BlackBerry 10. Two bucks isn't asking a lot. Think about the future.

I used my Q10 to create this CrackBerry madness!

nerdydaddyo

What Harkal is saying is that for two bucks you get all the features on the PlayBook. This is because there aren't enough active PlayBook users to support a freemium (in app purchase for bonus content) as there is on BlackBerry 10. So he took the time, ported the app to the PlayBook, and you basically pay him the same amount that a milkshake costs. You're buying him a milkshake to say "Thank You".

I used my Q10 to create this CrackBerry madness!

Playbook007

I personally think all apps should have a free shirt trial. Then buy if you like for a buck or 2. That way no one gets ripped, including the dev. Everything has a price.

Short trial....lol

Thanks Dev for the effort. I will purchase this tonite, to support the Dev, not f#*%*ng Blackberry!

emericksdad

Not even worth the download on either device. Just trying to cash in on a fad, guess what? It's done.

From my Z10.

TightDebbie

Why do we see or even hear about anything PlayBook anymore, if when on does ask, make a post, comment, give insight or new ideas, concerns about updates, we then get botched at and get told "the PlayBook is dead".

I don't really see the point in fuelling the fire anymore if the PlayBook isn't going to be supported anymore......Just doesn't make sense.

And thanks for the comments on my jeans. ;)

I wish that Crackberry.com would fix the issues I constantly have with not being able to edit my posts......that in itself, would be quite the accomplishment.

Now that's a BlackBerry 10 device. No front facing buttons, the way it should be. The way it was designed to be.

Awesome. Will get it for my Playbook. That sucker keeps on going and going. My son uses it on road trips. 12 hour bus ride and it still was going powered on! We have had a Kindle Fire and a Samsung tablet die on us. But the PB still keeps going strong. So sad that it cannot be update to OS10.

Defiantly wouldn't even think about buying it, when you can just sideload the real flappy bird..

Love this character. Makes me laugh every time. Maybe it's the different size eyes.

I've loaded Flappy Bird on my PlayBooks and it works just fine. Its as if it was built for it. Very easy sideload.

Ok reading a lot about just sideloading Flappy Bird...that's fine but also support PlayBook Developers. Flappy Herbie looks great on the PlayBook and I would say plays better than Flappy Bird on all devices!
