Tappy Chicken HTML5 FAQ
- Q: Why do I get a message about my browser not being supported?
Please note: If your browser does support WebGL, you should be able to try Tappy Chicken HTML5, though it may result in a browser crash or other similar issues. As WebGL becomes more widely adopted, these issues should be resolved with later browser versions.
- Q. How do I play Tappy Chicken?
A. Click or tap to make your chicken flap. Collect eggs, but don’t touch the posts, or you’ll have to start over from scratch!
- Q: Can you explain a little about the technology that makes this possible?
- Q: How do I modify or make my own Tappy Chicken?
A. First, sign up for Unreal Engine 4. Download the UE4 tools, and install example content, including Tappy Chicken, from Marketplace.
Through your subscription, you can also access the UE4 C++ source code through GitHub. This, however, is certainly not required for making your own Tappy-style app.
Check out UE4 tutorials and our Getting Started docs. Pay special attention to the UE4 Blueprint Tutorials playlist, as Tappy Chicken was created entirely though Blueprint visual scripting.
When you're ready to dig into the content, open the Tappy Chicken sample game in the Unreal Editor.
From here, you can study the Blueprint network in-depth and make changes as desired.
