Flappy Bird hits Amazon TV with multiplayer option

Flappy Bird series comes with several new features including Person vs Person mode.

By CBR Staff Writer

Flappy Bird is back again in Amazon’s app store with a new entry dubbed Flappy Birds Family, which is a multiplayer gaming title currently compatible only with Amazon’s Fire TV.

The new entry in the wildly popular Flappy Bird series comes with several new features including Person vs Person mode; more obstacles; more fun and still very hard.

Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen axed the app from the Apple’s App Store and Google Play in February, and stopped all future downloads, claiming that the game had ruined his life.

Soaring to the top of iPhone and Android app downloads, the game was downloaded about 50 million times, and received over half million reviews in the Apple’s iOS App Store.

Originally intended for the iPhone, the app was not available for free until mid-January 2014, following a surge in popularity that commenced in early December 2013.

Prior to being pulled off, the app was integrated with Apple’s Game Center and Google’s Play Games and allows players to share scores with other players, as well enable sharing scores on social networks.
