Flappy Bird

Flappy Bird is a rather special mobile game, illustrating what can happen when a seemingly unimaginative concept goes viral and the developer subsequently wishes to remove oneself from the spotlight. The game has also split communities in two with many wanting the name to simply remain dead, but that hasn't halted numerous developers across all platforms from attempting to ride on the success that is Flappy Bird.

Now the creator of Flappy Bird has said in an interview we could well see the game again.

We're just about as sick and tired of Flappy Bird as you all are, but it's worth covering news that a super popular clone of the mobile game is available on the Windows Store. This means should you have a tablet or Windows PC, you'll be able to enjoy the highly addictive, yet soul-destroying title on larger screens. Pass the break for more details and links.

Flappy Bird. The game that won’t die. That actually did die. This morning, a new update came out for the ad-based clone for Windows Phone. Many of you are reporting that the game crashes. Indeed, we’ve noticed on our after a few game plays that it is now crashing too on our Lumia 1520. What to do?

Luckily, there’s a new clone on the Store and it’s actually much, much better. Read on to find out why you want to uninstall the old version and grab this one instead.

We're sure you are all sick and tired of reading about Flappy Bird and how the game has been pulled from both iOS and Android, never to officially arrive on the Windows Phone Store. We even provided a collection of similar games for Windows Phone that are available for download, including a Flappy Bird clone. But today this clever rip has been updated to version 1.0.0.1. Head pass the break to learn more.

We’ve seen gamers ‘ragequit’ games before, but this weekend we were treated to a developer doing it instead. Yup, on Saturday Dong Nguyen, the mastermind behind Flappy Bird, announced that not only was he quitting the Flappy Bird biz, but he was removing the apps from the iOS and Android Stores...forevevah. Indeed, by Sunday afternoon the games had vanished.

That presumably put the kibosh on the Windows Phone port that he was working on. But fear not, we have some alternatives to keep you busy, and some would argue that these are even better.

Flappy Bird! It’s the game all your friends are playing and cursing over. Last week we heard from developer Dong Nguyen that a Windows Phone version of the surprise hit would be coming sometime in the near future. That near future was later clarified to be on or around February 13. The hype around this game is insane. We even had to do a public service announcement letting the Windows Phone community know that clone/fake version of the app in the Windows Phone Store wasn’t legit. Mostly because the amount of tips coming in was sky high.

Well, we’re a few days away from that date of February 13 where Flappy Bird was expected, but it’s actually not coming to Windows Phone. Ever.

Since yesterday, our email box has been flooded with ‘tips’ about a certain fad game right now: Flappy Bird. Evidently, it’s now on Windows Phone. So where’s the link? Where’s our coverage?

Simply put, that game – and every other iteration – is a fake or pirated copy. That’s right. If you’re playing Flappy Bird on Windows Phone, congrats, you’re playing a clone, a rip off, a stolen version of the game, something made by some neckbeard in his mom’s basement. We tweeted that out, but we’re guessing many of you missed it or aren’t on Twitter.

Dong Nguyen's hit-game Flappy Bird is on its way to Windows Phone, that we already know. But what we didn't know was an expected date. The developer took to Twitter to reveal that Flappy Bird has been submitted to the store and needs to be approved by Microsoft. This means the game is well on its way and it shouldn't be too long until we're able to ragequit while mobile.

File these under hopeful thinking, but Windows Phone users may be in a treat for new apps and games for their devices.

First up is Wunderlist, the popular task management service available on iOS, Android and elsewhere. True fact, it came out on Windows Phone nearly two years ago. You can't download it any longer as it was unpublished. The app was largely ignored, and was rife with bad reviews.

Windows Phone Game Review: LineBirds

LineBirds has had success over on the iPhone and Djinnworks is hoping to see similar success by bringing the popular game to the Windows Phone platform. LineBirds is an obstacle course type game where you try to navigate your bird through a maze of lines and obstacles.

The goal of the game is to navigate your bird the furthest through the maze. Brush one of the lines and all you'll loose is a few feathers. If it's more than just a glancing touch, game over. You also have moving dangers to avoid (airplanes) that will ruin your day as well.

Continued after the break.
