How to play a Flappy Bird clone on the Pebble Smartwatch

Flappy Bird continues to be all the rage even after it was removed from the App Store. In fact, it’s so popular that a Flappy Bird clone named Tiny Bird was created for the diminutive Pebble Smartwatch. The gameplay is much the same, although it is significantly less forgiving than the game that inspired it (if you can believe that).

Inside I’ll show you how to get Tiny Bird on your Pebble watch. And yes, I even have video of my embarrassing hands-on gameplay.

To get Tiny Bird on your Pebble watch, you’ll need to make sure you have the Pebble Smartwatch application installed on your iPhone. Launch the app, tap on Games and you should see Tiny Bird under the Recently Updated section. Tap the Add button to add the game to your Pebble.

It’s a painful experience…you’ve been warned

Once installed, the game should launch immediately. If you want to ever relaunch the game, press the middle button and scroll down until you find Tiny Bird.

Playing the game is similar to Flappy Bird, but as mentioned, it’s much less forgiving. Instead of using taps on the screen, you have to press the up button on the watch. It’s excruciatingly tedious and downright frustrating to play. Flappy Bird is like a walk in the park when compared to playing Tiny Bird on the Pebble’s tiny e-ink screen with its horrible refresh rate.

You’d be best off just watching the video above and saving yourself the pain of experiencing Tiny Bird. It’s so frustrating that you probably won’t bother playing it after the initial try.

        19’780 / 69 = ~286.67
        286.7/4 = ~71.67

        “just working on the internet for a few hours” -> just working 72 hours a week

        I just realized that these spam comments are aimed at people really bad at math ^^

    I played Flappy Bird… I don’t see the attraction. Played for like 2 min, died 100 times and was like… back to Candy Crush.

    • Jonathan

      Same, except for Candy Crush. I’ve never played it, and ever will.

  • Victor

    OMG idownloadblog makes $6,000 a day!!! ( American dollars)

    • Abdl

      …and how did you know that?!

      • Victor

        Look it up on worth of web they don’t even repay their users (78,000 daily) maybe once or twice with 5 t-shirts no one really commented about getting.

    • Jonathan

      You just posted this…

      • Victor

        Sorry my phone had crashed

  • Abdl

    Please enough with this Flappy bird shit! Enough!!

    • Adam

      100% agree – this game was for 20sec on my iphone – not worth having it – get us some useful information please

  • Keabsy

    I’m kind in a dilema. I really like the Pebble, but all these iWatch rumors make me want to wait. I’m not a work-out or fitness person, I want a watch for the useful features it has. What should I do? Wait or buy?

    • Gbruno

      I was in the same boat. I’ve been an iPhone owner since the first generation…but I love my Pebble. I actually LIKE the fact that it does NOT have a touch screen. The battery life is fantastic (6-7 days) and it’s got a ton of cool features. Wait for the iWatch if you must, but if you’re looking for a sweet piece of technology right now, get a Pebble. Even if/when the iWatch comes out, it’d REALLY have to impress me for me to give up my Pebble. Hope my impressions help.

      • Keabsy

        Well I’m a student, and I can’t be spending hundreds of dollars unfortunately. Wouldn’t it be better to save the $150 and just wait until the iWatch gets released? Then I’d be wasting. :/ That’s the problem, there’s no guarantee it’s going to be worth it, nor if it’s going to be really good. Yet, I’m going to be able to pick a gift soon, pebble, or money?
