Flappy Bird to Return to the App Store in August with Multiplayer

In February, the highly popular Flappy Birds game was removed unexpectedly from the App store by creator Dong Nguyen only a week after he had tweeted "Please give me peace." With people literally going crazy over the game, Flappy Birds was making approximately $50,000 per day in revenue from in-app ads which added more fire to the popularity of the game.

According to the creator, the Flappy Bird game is going to make a comeback to the App Store in August.This will be an entirely new version of the game and will be a multiplayer title that is "less addictive." Nguyen gave an interview in March to Rolling Stone where he revealed the specific reasons for removing the game all of a sudden. This actions was in part because of the ton of attention he was getting from the media and also because of the messages from public which kept on complaining that the game was too addictive.

He even claims that one woman told him he was "distracting the children of the world."Soon after the removal of the game, many different developers made their own versions of the game under different titles and the App Store was literally flooded by these games from developers who were trying to get a share of Nguyen's success. Now the next game is going to be jumping game once again where the players will control a character that leaps from building to building.
