Flappy Bird arriving to Windows Phone 'in 10 days', promises developer

Flappy Bird arriving to Windows Phone 'in 10 days', promises developer
The goofy addictive new star on the game block, Flappy Birds, will soon creep up on your Windows Phone device, after appearing on Android last week. 

The endless runner game, where you basically tap the screen to nudge a bird into the air and have it "flap" through one-point obstacles, has retro-styled graphics, and purposefully cumbersome controls, which seems to be a recipe for success these days.

Its developer took to Twitter, and responded to numerous fan questions that he will indeed make the game available on the Windows Phone platform, too. 


When asked about a possible timeframe, Dong Nguyen replied that he is now updating his iOS apps, but the Flappy Birds WP port will be his next project, and he expects to see it in the Windows Store in about ten days, as the game first has to go through Microsoft's approval process.

This game is so frustrating, I came close to throwing my phone into the wall. WP users don't download it, it's a trap!!!

It's gonna have different coding than the Android version.... It might work fine on WP.

.....No....that isn't what he means... He means the game is kinda frustrating to play cause the bird does these retarded hops on click and not a smooth rise like helicopter games. Then it immediately goes into a nose dive after so you kinda have to do this retarded hop through the same pipes like a 100 times. Still, you WP guys really need to get your heads out of your a**es though. For a tragic, distant third place platform with barely any appeal, you shouldn't have such big egos.

Nice story but considering where you are coming into I consider that trolling. maybe you should try and be a little less moronic.. I know that's a lot to as isn't it?

We have bog egos because we feel tragically exclusive... Exclusivity is much cooler than getting lost in the crowd.. ............. Everyday multiple people ask me about my phone, whether it be my 920, or 1520.. When was the last time anyone pulled you aside about yours?? It's because yours isn't special, they've seen it before, they're used to it.... ................... Sorry.. Not going to adjust my ego over closed minded people like you.. You base your ego on what everyone else has, and I'll base mine on what I have.. I don't care how many follow... Can't help you dude.

With barely any appeal? I think you should be the one getting your head out of your a**.

Yes it IS available... But those guys got used to make fun of WinPhone because it doesn't get the popular games on time...

I thought he would say 10 days to finish developing this game for WP . A game like this should take 5 minutes to develop

When do we get terrible micro transactions? Can't wait to pay $1.99 for 3 extra lives.

I don't get the fuss, this game is exactly like that helicopter game and it's honestly simply boring. Try out a game like Clash of Clans.

Seems to be a really crappy game. I dont get the fuss myself, especially since we've had games like this for years already.
