In the same week that Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen yanked his highly successful smartphone game from app stores world wide, the wonderful people at Sesame Workshop have released their version of the game with their new title Flappy Bert on their Sesame Workshop site.
In this flash game you play as Bert’s pet pigeon Bernice. Your goal is to guide Bert through a maze of columns by clicking the mouse. If you run into a column you will hear Bert, in a somewhat disappointed tone, say the name of his long time friend/roommate Ernie. So I guess that means that in this game you are actually Ernie, who is controlling Bernice, who is guiding Bert through the maze.
Give the game a try and share your thoughts. You can find additional fun and educational at SesameStreet.org
