Flappy Bird

Flappy Bird will make triumphant return in August

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.

It just kills time. Wasn't meant to be a funny game. Just a difficult game to beat. That actually is fun.

Kevin Michaluk says:

I still play the original! :)

Me too. At age 40 !! Can't get enough of it either. I hope the new version has diagonal tubes. That would raise the bar. Can't get past 26 tubes since launch day. Trying at least once a day. Also would appreciate retina graphics. But I really like the game. :-)
