In case you missed the news, the bestselling Apple app game Flappy Bird was pulled from iTunes by its creator because the game was addictive, and the author felt an overwhelming responsibility for ruining people’s lives. To fill the vacuum of addictive mobile games, developers everywhere have been rushing to release Flappy Bird clones. Some of the Android wannabees have unfortunately been laced with malware. But the majority are simply bad games.
According to the UK Guardian, as many as one-third of newly released iTunes games are Flappy Bird clones. At the moment, the bestsellers (they are all free, by the way) are Flappy Wings, Jumpy Jack, Tiny Flying Drizzy, Splashy Fish, and Flappy Fall.

It is the most oddest reason I have ever heard. A games developer spends all his time learning to create games and gets one on the App Store. Then gets what he wants with all the money earned and then says its not what he wants and pulls the game. I am sure it has left many games developers trying to do what he has done left feeling pretty miffed. Still there will always be the clones that might make it and the online versions like on http://letsplayflappybird.com/flash-flappy-bird-game/

My kids (ages 12 and 16) enjoy Flappy Birds, and they’ve been talking about copy cats. I’ll have to get them to weigh in when they get back from school.
