This may not be 100% Android game related but it is pretty damn cool nonetheless. Someone has decided to port the ridiculously difficult Flappy Birds game to be playable on the black and white digital screen used on their Vape box mod. The game is running, fully playable mind you, on the screen of a eVic-VTC Mini e-cigarette.

The dust has just about settled from Flappy Bird’s viral success, a success so great it prompted its creator Dong Nguyen to pull it from Google’s Playstore and Apple’s App sore, and he’s released another one.
Aside from bringing Flappy Bird back to mobile devices, developer Dong Nguyen has begun teasing his next game which apparently doesn’t have a name just yet, or at least one he isn’t willing to share just yet. However he did decide to share a screenshot of the Flappy Bird follow-up on Twitter.
Dong Nguyen, the creator off Flappy Bird, has confirmed that the game will be coming back to mobile devices in the future but it won’t be as it was. Since it will be a changed up version of the original Flappy Bird game, Dong Nguyen is considering this to be a totally new game and states that it will be much better than the original.
It’s been an interesting few months since Flappy Bird’s release onto Android and iOS before being taken down from the developer of the game, Dong Nguyen. Citing everything from the game ruining his life to being too addictive, Nguyen pulled the game down. Subsequently a massive storm of clones ended up being released onto both platforms afterwards. I’m sure the game making $50,000/day had nothing to do with that at all.
Interesting news today in what looks like a little bit of regulation by Google regarding the Google Play store, something that doesn’t happen often unless it is about copyright infringement or hazardous apps and games. Apparently Google is taking down games with the word Flappy in the title.
Alright, we don’t post anything about iPhone or iOS generally at all, mainly because we are an Android gaming news website. So if we are posting something related to an iPhone, although the game Flappy Bird itself was on Android, you know it has to be a pretty decent WTF moment.
Yesterday we posted that we wouldn’t be posting anything more related to Flappy Bird due to the developer wanting some peace. Since then we have seen statements and other things posted by other websites involving the Flappy Bird developer which is fine, we will stick to our word for the most part. However Terry Cavanagh, the creator of Super Hexagon and other games, has published his own spin-off of Flappy Bird called Maverick Bird.
We were going to post about this news yesterday but we felt that some more details were going to come to light about Flappy Bird being pulled from Google Play and the iOS App Store. Sure enough some more have been released. Aside from the initial statement that it is ruining the creator’s simple life, he is now saying it is also being pulled to save everyone from addiction to the game.
The enigma of a game called Flappy Bird that has seen a rather huge surge in popularity since its release onto Android and iOS isn’t just a mindless, frustratingly difficult, yet somehow addictive game that you downloaded and now probably waste a ridiculous amount of time playing. No, Flappy Bird is much more than that. It’s a pretty big success when it comes to revenues.
