Flappy Bird

Flappy Bird, the game everyone loved to hate, will be making a refreshed return later this year according to its developer, Dong Nguyen. During an interview with CNBC, Nguyen says that a new version of the game will be multiplayer and less addictive. A main reason why the game was originally taken down by Nguyen was because of its addictive nature, he claims, though that led to reportedly large amounts of revenue from ads with Flappy Bird being played by tens of millions of people while it was still available.

Details on the new release are slim at this point, but we can only hope the game has a bit more polish this time around. Though the crude nature of the original was fun to scoff at, it wasn't all that fun to look at or play, to be honest. Let's see if the new multiplayer version will turn as many heads when it is released.

Because after all, most developers' goal is to make games that people don't want to play.

It'll be interesting to see if the graphics still look like they were ripped off from Nintendo.

I have a feeling it will be tweaked so that it wont... But I also believe that's why he removed it originally, to avoid any potential lawsuits from Nintendo. No one takes a product/App off the market because its TOO addictive.

Let the rage recommence.

I don't think people will care much that it's back. There are already so many clones and spinoffs available to play. People will get bored of those and not care anymore.

I factory reset my phone last week and just assumed it wasn't going to reinstall from the play store and it did. Played it today. 9 is all I got.

You need to devote 500 more hours to it, then your life will be better, promise*

Unless some other game goes super viral right before this gets released, then it will certainly get tons of downloads. I'm just interested in seeing how far it will go.

Clak says:

Better hope it doesn't still use Nintendo assets, or he'll need the money to defend himself in court.

fuzzylumpkin says:

Oh for science sake! Hopefully it'll die on its arse. Very little respect for this particular dev.

334 no big deal. All you other cry babies just suck at it that's why you "don't get the hype" or don't like it. Sore loser's.

Lol or maybe some people aren't a huge tool like you are and they don't need a stupid game like this to brag about in order to feel good about themselves. ;) Keep chirping there little bird.
