Flappy Bird in the macOS Finder: Flappy Dird

Eieio has made this version of Flappy Bird that wildly runs in the macOS Finder using directories, symlinks, AppleScript, and most importantly emoji for graphics:

It has instructions, high score tracking, and marquee banner ads. You double-click to start a game and select any file in the window to jump. It runs at 4 frames a second and can’t run much faster. It occasionally drops inputs for reasons that you’ll understand if you finish this blog.
