This is a game I made and entered for Mini Ludum Dare #71: The Retro Challenge .
I made the game from scratch in QuickBASIC Extended 7.1 with some x86 assembly for the graphics rendering.

This game is based on the popular mobile game Flappy Bird where you are the flappy '>' and you must flap your way through the pipes without hitting them or the ground!

The funky twist I added to this version of the game is instead of graphics everything was done in DOS text mode using ASCII characters!
