Flappy Bird RETURNS! But There’s a Catch and You Won’t Like it
After being shut down by its creator, Dong Nguyen, the most addictive game of the first half of this year will return to our handsets. But it’s not the same game, it’s now called Flappy Bird Family and multiplayer option has been added, as well.

The game hasn’t returned completely yet. Because it’s only available at Amazon’s Appstore for Android, but not for Apple App Store and Google Play services. The game is compatible with the Amazon’s Fire TV platform, and comes with the new obstacles, like ghosts, for example. The description of the game says the following
“Flappy Birds now are on Amazon Fire TV with incredible new features: Person vs Person mode, more obstacles, more fun and still very hard. Enjoy playing the game at home (not breaking your TV) with your family and friends.”
Flappy Bird gets re-released, but not for everybody
The game is expected to return to Google Play Store and Apple App Store later in August, but until then, only the Amazon users can enjoy in this addictive game.
Flappy Bird was one of the most popular games of the first half of 2014. Although its concept was very simple, and it took only a couple of days for Dong to make it, the game was enormously addictive and millions of players were tapping on the screen in order to avoid pipes and achieve as best score as possible.
On the other hand, Dong was uncomfortable with the huge popularity of the game, and although he earned more than $50.000 from ads daily, he decided to shut down the game.
Besides the return of Flappy Bird, Dong Nguyen said that he is working on the new game. The game has similar interface as Flappy Bird, but the exact concept of the game, as well as the release date are not known yet. Dong said on twitter:
“I am making a new game. So people can forget about Flappy Bird for a while.”
What do you think of this? It was a bad decision to release it for Amazon Fire TV or perhaps the developer has received good money for that. Sound off below.
