Flappy Bird clone already available for Windows Phone
Love it or hate it, the retro-styled Flappy Bird is one of the most downloaded free mobile games in recent history. It garnered success on iOS first, landing on Android at the end of January. The game is now generating about $50,000 per day from ads.

Earlier this week, we told you that an official Windows Phone version of Flappy Bird was around the corner. However, until this arrives, a Flappy Bird clone is already available to download via Windows Phone store (for free, of course).

Interestingly,
Flappy Bird clone already available for Windows Phone
Dong Nguyen, who developed the original version of the game, says that the Window Phone version that’s not released by him “doesn’t make any harm.” Even so, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wait for the genuine version - which might be out for WP devices sometime next week.

The clone that's available now is a clone in the true meaning of the word, having exactly the same 8-bit graphics and the same simple gameplay. But at least it doesn't seem to be as terrible as some clones that are downloadable on Android and iOS.

If you haven’t tried Flappy Bird yet - the original one - we’re not sure we want to recommend it. It can be very addictive and also terribly frustrating.

Flappy bird (original) is a clone of other retro style games... It would be ironic (if he does attempt to sue) to say the least...

Yeah, only over 50 million people can possibly use the app....
....................
Everyone agrees that 500 million people are a lot of people, but not even the biggest fool looks at 50 million people as "no one" as you put it.... Do you?

If he isn't worried about no one downloading that clone, then why would he promise to have the official game in the store in 10 days time?

It's funny how availability of an app on WP is newsworthy. A reason I stick with my iP5s and Note 2

They don't cover availability of new apps to iOS, and Android?..
..................
You think it's funny now, but if you had any foresight you would see that these articles are showing that day, by day, WP is nothing to laugh at...
................
Speaking of laughing... I'm holding a Lumia 1520 in my hands right now, and tha hardware kills both of the old, played out, devices you just mentioned... What do your devices have that WP doesn't? More apps!.. Maybe you should be worried that WP is getting apps now..... Not so funny now, is it....

Doesn't it bother you that you always get pseudo-versions of the original app?

Yup... I've seen WP fans raving how great Metrotube is. I tried it and it was MUCH worse than OG app. MT is actually worse than iOS 5 Youtube app for me.

Played out, old? Sorry, Note 3 is a beast when it comes to performance and 5S, it kicks Lumia 1520 in speed. Note 3 takes advantage of big screen, while Lumia just adds one more row of those one-colored 1996 AOL squares. Note can film 4K video, do multiwindows, stylus stuff etc. iPhone has Fingerprint sensor, fast and easy camera, stunning feel thanks to presicion cut corners and finished aluminium, and OS which is awesome. And because it's iPhone, it's cool as hell. And we are not even talking about app stores, where N3 and 5S win it by million miles.

Most of the time PA covers only apps about iOS and Android. I think that time u r sleeping?

Talk your presicion cut corners and aluminium stunning feel when it comes to Note 3. Why dont you talk about os blotware mess in Note 3? Why dont you tak about Windows smoothness and compare it to Android? What about restrictions in iOS? Yup 10+ mil apps? How many are usefull? What about security? Its never ending lol,

If you people dont like particular OS then why bother to comment? Every OS has its own merits & demerits. Enjoy what you like instead of bashing unnecessarily.

How is it funny? Would you bother to explain?

The reason it is news is because back in the day the lack of major apps was seen as a weak spot for WP and many including iOS and Android fans bashed WP because of that, now things are rapidly changing so its new worthy.

So why doesnt Nokia sell more phones than Samsung, Sony, LG, and HTC all together?

And by the way I like Nokia phones, as for Android phones, well, I like them better.
