While Flappy Bird’s creator Dong Nguyen returned to app development with Swing Copters, we’re sure that many of you guys would have preferred if Nguyen had updated the game, introduced some different modes or maybe even enhance the gameplay a little. Well if you don’t mind Flappy Bird clones, how does the idea of a Google-made Flappy Bird sound to you?
Now Android 5.0 Lollipop has yet to be released to the masses, and with every update there are bound to be Easter Eggs to be found, and thanks to YouTuber Sam Nalty, it seems that he has discovered a Google-made variation of Flappy Bird as one of Android 5.0 Lollipop’s Easter Eggs. As you can see in the video above, Google’s version does away with the bird and uses the Android mascot instead.
The pipes have also been removed in favor of, well, lollipops. In order to access the game, users will have to perform a series of taps in the phone’s settings menu, after which the game will launch. There seems to be a score tracker although we have to wonder if it will be able to retain your high score from earlier efforts.
It is also unclear if the Easter Egg will make its way into the final release, but given Google’s penchant for Easter Eggs and silly little games, we don’t see why not. So, anyone else looking forward to Android 5.0 Lollipop?
