Dong Nguyen, the creator of the addictive Flappy Bird is back and he’s released a new game called Swing Copter. Like the earlier game, Swing Copter uses pixelated graphics and all you’ll need to do is tap on your smart phone repeatedly.
If you think FlappyBirds was hard, this is actually worse. The objective of the game is to get the helicopter as high up as possible instead of flying from left to right. But the problem is, the gameplay of getting it up is insanely difficult as you would need to control the copter as it changes direction rapidly at will. Seriously, how could this be any better than killing off Flappy Bird in the first place?

Rovio continues to drop more hints of its new Angry Birds sequel which will be called Angry Birds Stella. The new episode story evolves around Stella, a pink Angry Bird character and she will be joined by 5 new characters. Nothing much has been revealed about the game play but it is like to be the same sling shot action as the original.
The game is expected to be released in Fall, which is still far away in September. Somehow the teaser pic looks like something from a full featured animated movie, don’t you think?

Just when things are heating up, Flappy Bird is said to be pulled down in less than 24 hours from Google Play & iOS Appstore. Its creator Dong Nguyen had tweeted his decision while adding that he couldn’t take this anymore. It is unclear why exactly he is pulling the plug but he clarified on Twitter that it wasn’t related to legal issues. He has also added that Flappy Bird is not for sale and he will still be continuing to develop mobile games.
It was reported that Flappy Bird is raking in a handsome US$50,000 per day in mobile ad revenue, which is pretty good income for the game developer. To turn down a steady revenue stream must be pretty drastic for Dong Nguyen. He had tweeted yesterday while Flappy Bird can be considered a success, it also had ruined his simple life.

If you can’t break the habit, cheating could be your way out by hitting an incredibly high score which you can’t beat through normal means. The folks at AndroidCentral have posted a guide on doing this which involves rooting the device, looking for the Data Folder of the game with a File Explorer and edit a line in its XML document to fix your desired high score.
After doing the hack, just play a normal round of Flappy Bird and once your bird dies, your incredibly fixed high score will be displayed. Next, share your screenshots on social networks and you can officially retire.
If rooting is too complicated and if all else fails, watch the alternative solution after the break.
