Since the demise of Flappy Bird we’ve seen a slew of games making their way to the app store, vying for the chance to reap the benefits of people SOL when they search for the addicting game.
Not all that aesthetically pleasing and not in the app store, visit the Flappy Braille website to play.

The goal, much like the beloved Flappy Bird, is to pass through the pipes, or, through the braille, using your arrow keys, you can control your dot and move it through the characters.

In 2011, a developer named Corey Johnson created URL Hunter. You play as an O that wants to “eat”the letter A. Similar to Flappy Braille, you can move left or right, and then use the space bar to eat your prey. You only have 30 seconds to rack up your high score.
