Flappy Bird Forced into Super Mario World Through Glitches

When Vietnam-based  Nguyễn Hà Đông released Flappy Bird onto mobile devices back in 2013 it was criticized the for using assets that looked like they were taken directly out of a Super Mario Bros game; well over the past few weeks glitch speed-runner and youtuber SethBling took this to heart and decided to injected custom code from Flappy Bird directly into Super Mario World game in order to create a ‘glitch-made’ Super Mario variation of Flappy Bird.

It’s a relatively complex process, something which takes over an hour to do; but by using the elements which made the end-credits glitch in Super Mario World, something which SethBling managed to pull off in a previous video, he learned that by using additional controllers and following a strict set of movements he could inject custom code into a retail copy of Super Mario World.

The results are, as seen in the video at the top of this article, extremely impressive and as such a working version of Flappy Bird, using Super Mario World as the base game, appears playable and accessible.

You can play Super Mario World on the BLAZE TAB, JXD and GPD XD; all of which are available to order at www.funstockretro.co.uk; alternatively if you own the original cartridge you can play it on the Retron 5.
