Should have known this would happen. After this past weekend's controversial pulling of the popular Flappy Bird mobile game, several mobile game developers have jumped on the bandwagon to fill that Flappy Bird void with numerous clones.
Of course, the original can only be copied and never fully duplicated. For example, Flappy Bird was completely free. Fly Birdie - Flappy Bird Flyer charges for every three lives, and Fluffy vs. Flappy Birds charges to remove ads or for a chunk of in-game coins.
Other clones include Flappy Plane, Flappy Bee, and Flying Flappy Unicorn Bird: The Frozen Sky Fall. Even Android-users can get in on the action with Happy Poo Flap.
If you're just dying to play the original, several people are selling their smart phones that have the game installed on eBay for quite the high prices. One auction has over $20,000 in bids!
Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen removed the game after saying he did not want all the fame he had received from it. Apparently money was not important to him in this decision, as the game brought in over $50,000 a day in ad revenue.
"I am sorry Flappy Bird users, 22 hours from now, I will take Flappy Bird down. I cannot take this anymore," Nguyen tweeted. "I can call Flappy Bird is a success of mine. But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it."
