Addictive screen masher Flappy Bird comes to Android


UPDATE: Flappy Bird was removed from the Google Play Store.


Chances are you may have heard of the craze that is Flappy Bird. It has rocketed up the iOS charts, creating a Vine meme of users reacting to their crashing avian avatar in the process. Sure, the name definitely tries to cop some of Angry Birds’ street cred, but it seems just a few taps of the screen has been enough to get users hooked.

The concept of Flappy Bird is simple: tap the display to keep a bird afloat while navigating an 8-bit realm in the style of Super Mario. In fact, gameplay is a lot like old school Mario levels in the air or underwater where mashing a button was the only thing that would keep the Italian plumber afloat.

Apparently the Android version has been made a little less difficult than its iOS counterpart, so perhaps it won’t cause as many social media freak outs, but it will no doubt lure in more than a few, spawning an addiction that might see them tapping their screens in their sleep. That’s fair warning. Flappy Bird is available now as a totally free download from Google Play.
