Fans of Flappy Bird, we have some good news. If you own an Amazon Fire TV console, you can now download the original game right within your fingertips. The game appears to work with the game controllers as well as Fire TV remote, so it’s clear that the game was built specifically for the device.
It is now known as Flappy Birds Family, which is an apt name given that the Fire TV is a family entertainment console. To make the game more intuitive and family oriented, the developer has built in a player vs player mode where you can compete with your loved ones in keeping the bird flying for as long as possible.
It’s certainly a fun addition to your living room, although we would have liked it if the app was available all across Android and not just on the Fire TV. But we’re sure the developer will have something for regular Android users in the coming days as well.
The widely popular game was removed from popular app hubs back in February despite raking in plenty of revenue. This came after the developer realized that the game was “too addictive”. Since then, we have heard that he has been keen to bring a slightly less addictive version of the game to mobile devices and this could just be a hint of things to come.
