Flappy Bird is one of those games that no one really expected to take off the way it did, but somehow proved itself to be quite a major hit. Last we heard, the app, despite accused of using stolen graphics, was pulling in about $50,000 a day from ad revenue alone. It is apparently lucrative enough for a clone to be created for the Windows Phone platform where the game has yet to be launched. As you can see in the screenshots above, the clone of the game is literally a copy and paste job as the graphics and gameplay have been copied from the original game.
Then again like we said, Flappy Bird has been accused of copying graphics from older games, so we’re not sure if the original developer really has the right to be mad about that. The app could eventually be taken down at the original developer’s request, but in the meantime for those interested in seeing if the clone is just as good as the original, you can get your hands on the game via the Windows Phone Store. For those who would rather play the original, you can rest assured that it will be making its way onto the Windows Phone platform in the next week or so. In the meantime has anyone figured out what the fuss is over that game?
