Flappy Bird Creator Delivering Another Addicting Game
Although Flappy Bird was taken down from the App Store and Google Play earlier this year by its creator Dong Nguyen, the game was supposedly going to make a comeback this month. Apparently, a new game that shares the mechanics of Flappy Bird is going to be released by Nguyen instead. The new game, known as Swing Copters, is a vertical scrolling title in which players must navigate a small character with a propeller attached to its head through gates and swinging hammers. Players attempt to avoid obstacles by tapping on the screen in order to change the direction of the character as it flies.
Swing Copters looks just as difficult as Flappy Bird was, and with it being available on August 21, 2014, gamers will soon be able to see if they can beat the high scores of others. The game will be free and ad-supported, though the ability to remove advertisements will be available as an in-game purchase for 99 cents.
