Fall Out Boy creates Flappy Bird-like game


The creator of the popular and addicting Flappy Bird game has pulled it from the app store. Developer Dong Nguyen announced the decision on Twitter:

“I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.”

“It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore.”

“I also don’t sell ‘Flappy Bird’, please don’t ask.”

“And I still make games.”

The potential, yet reportedly non-existing, legal issues he is referring to are the striking similarities in art work and appearance between Flappy Bird and Super Mario Bros. Notably the font and green pipes.

Don’t worry though, if you were addicted and are having withdraws there are certain clones if you accidentally deleted the app. The newest of which is “Fall Out Bird,” from the punk rock band Fall Out Boy.
