Flappy Bird clone already available for Windows Phone

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, 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.
