Everyone remembers “Flappy Bird” the aggravatingly difficult mobile game where the player controlled a flapping bird through a maze of green pipes. It was a global phenomena of a game that frustrated some and was enjoyed by others but regardless, the creator Dong Nguyen removed the game from all app stores. The removal spawned hundreds of remakes and clones of the game and yet the developer remained silent until now.
Dong Nguyen recently released a new game titled ‘Swing Copters’ on the iPhone app store where it was featured on the stores homepage. The game is entirely similar to ‘Flappy Bird’ though the player controls an orange blob with a helicopter hat through a vertical maze of green beams and swinging hammers (a la Super Mario Brothers).
The game has received mixed reviews, much like Nguyen’s previous app for being too similar to ‘Flappy Bird’ though it can be noted that the graphics are at least originally designed this time around. ‘Swing Copters’ can be downloaded for free on iPhone and Android.
