Flappy Bird creator releasing latest game, Swing Copters, this week

Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen will be releasing his latest game, Swing Copters, on the App Store this Thursday. Like Flappy Bird, Swing Copters has an 8-bit art style, and asks you to guide your character through obsticals to get through the levels. It also shares a similar addictive nature to Flappy Bird, according to Touch Arcade:

Swing Copters captures all the "just one more try" of Flappy Bird, and seems even more brutally difficult. In the game, you play as a little dude who has a propeller on his head. Swing Copters coaxes you to tap the screen, at which point you're airborne, wildly flying to one side. Tapping changes your flight direction, and the goal is similar: Fly through as many gates and get as high as you can. Sort of similar to Flappy Bird, but going up instead of to the side.

Swing Copters will is set to launch on the App Store this Thursday, August 21. It will be free to download, with a $0.99 in-app purchase to remove ads. Will you be taking Swing Copters for a spin? Let us know below in the comments.
