Flappy Bird

The developer behind Flappy Bird left us all baffled when he pulled off the game from the Play Store a couple of months ago claiming that it had become too addictive. But the developer was expected to be bringing the game back, but we didn’t quite know when. And now, creator Dong Nguyen has mentioned that a newer version of the popular game will be making a comeback in August to all the popular app hubs. He claims that the new game will be more inclined towards multiplayer gameplay and will be less addictive as well.

There’s no word on how different this new Flappy Bird will be, but it’s certainly going to be interesting, considering that it’s going to be less addictive. We won’t be surprised if the game receives a visual refresh as well, shying away from the pixelated retro look.

Rovio recently launched its own spinoff called Retry, so the market might get a whole lot tougher to penetrate for the updated Flappy Bird.
