The ultra-popular time-wasting phenomenon Flappy Bird will soon have a successor. The upcoming title by the same game developer will be named "Swing Copters".
Swing Copters will feature similar gameplay as Flappy Bird, except it will reportedly be even more difficult. The key difference between the newcomer and its predecessor will be the direction of the action.
The propeller-headed main character of Swing Copter will be moving upwards and will try to avoid the obstacles with swinging motions. The little fella in Flappy Bird on the other hand, moves horizontally and tries to avoid obstacles by flying up and down. Check the Game Demo Video Below.
The simple, but highly addictive game "Flappy Bird", was pulling in a ton of advertising cash each day, making developer Dong Nguyen wealthy. But Nguyen decided to pull the game, fearing its addictiveness. At least that was the reason he gave when asked about his actions. Perhaps he was worried about the addictive qualities of the game leading to the downfall of modern civilization. Still, it was a once-in-a-lifetime oppotunity for the developer, and someday he just might rue his decision.
Flappy Bird is back, and available for your Android Wear powered Smartwatch thanks to Android developer Corbin Davenport. The process of sideloading the game requires you to use a modified version of the apk, and an Android Debugging Bridge.
