Flappy Bird Clones Under Attack by Apple and Google

Flappy Bird simply features a yellow bird flying through the air and a pipe-like cylinder making occasional appearances to sabotage its avian efforts. Yet it became so popular that a number of lookalike clones got created along the way. 

Believe it or not, there are hogs, fish, trolls, felines and even a Justin Bieber among the substitutes lined up as alternative versions of the game. This copycat behavior caused the founder of the game to make an announcement that he would pull it off the market. That in turn increased demand and now things are chaotic beyond belief. 

The demand for the highly addictive game has reached monumental levels. Enough is enough! That is why Apple and Google, the two mobile app players, are hurriedly rejecting any twin games that bear an uncanny resemblance to Flappy Bird. 

A man who submitted a game termed Flappy Dragon got a notice discarding his patent. He is quite frustrated but that is the way it goes! Apple is especially getting tough on games with titles that contain the word “Flappy”. And Google is following suit. Many new game developers are trying to hoodwink the public into buying into their creations merely by attaching the “F” word to them. 

Flappy Bird was based on a simple mechanism yet it was difficult to play. That earned it the loyalty of billions of fans who would rather die than be deprived of playing their favorite online game. The current situation is such that Nguyen, the founder of the game has pulled it off the cyberspace environment. This of course has led to further problems.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
