Flappy Bird, a mobile game developed by Dong Nguyen, burst onto the mobile scene back in 2013, and since then, countless clones as well as spinoffs have been released. What makes this game particularly addicting is its endless side-scroller format, and now, you can enjoy it directly within an Apple macOS notification box. Sure, this isn’t a game you can just install, as it requires some time to get it working in a macOS Big Sur notification. Read more for a video and additional information.
Once you do get it working, the game runs as usual and is actually based on a clone of Flappy Bird. For those who’ve never played the game, you can control the bird Faby, which moves persistently to the right. Simply navigate it through pairs of pipes that have equally sized gaps placed at random heights, while Faby automatically descends and only ascends when tapped. As you successfully pass through a pair of pipes, the player is awarded one point.

The UserNotificationsUI framework was added to macOS in Big Sur. But for some reason there’s no Xcode template for Notification Content Extensions on macOS. So you have to make one for iOS and then change all your UI’s to NS’s
