The First Unreal Engine 4 Game is Tappy Chicken, a Flappy Bird Clone – and it’s Actually Pretty Important

May 23, 2014

Unreal Engine 4 promises to shake up gaming by supporting a wide variety of platforms, and at costs that make it accessible to developers. Sure, plenty of visually-stunning 3D games will be made wit hit, but Unreal wants to show that there’s more than just 3D games to be made with it: so they released Tappy Chicken.

Made by “a single artist with no traditional programming skills,” this app is meant to show that Unreal can compete with Unity, which is capable of many powerful things, but also serves as a convenient way to make multiplatform games. Unreal wants to show that they can have something similar, so Tappy Chicken.

The game is your fairly standard Flappy Bird inspired game, perhaps with smoother animation than most, but it shows that Unreal Engine 4 is capable of a lot of things, from powerful FPS games to, well, Tappy Chicken. You can download it for yourself on Google Play.
