Despite its barebones graphics and a single button for control, Flappy Bird turned out to be one of the most addictive if stupendously difficult games we’ve ever played. Some of us were sad to see it disappear from the App Store and Google Play Store, but it may be about to make a return!
When Flappy Bird originally disappeared from Android and iOS, Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen told the world: “I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.”
It looks increasingly like Nguyen may be on the verge of performing an about turn, however, with Flappy Bird flying back onto the small screen with a tweak to stop people getting so addicted.
The developer told Rolling Stone that next time around Flappy Bird would be launched with a warning: “Please take a break.” Having spent hours furiously tapping away at our screens to get a dismal single-figure score, it’s advice we’d be happy to take!
Flappy Bird isn’t the only title in the works for Nguyen, either, and the developer is also working on three other games: a flying game called Kitty Jetpack, an ‘action chess game’ called Checkonaut and a yet to be named title involving cowboys. If any of them are even a fraction as addictive as Flappy Birds, Nguyen will have another smash hit on his hands.
