Swing Copters is the next game from Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen

pixel graphics, and it really does look like a vertical Flappy Bird.From the looks of the trailer video, Swing Copters is essentially Flappy Bird turned vertically. It looks like once again the only interaction is a simple tap, but this time your little copter will swing left and right as it rises, and your tap will cause your copter to change direction. As you rise, you'll have to avoid swinging hammers on either side of the screen. And, of course, touching anything will kill you. Add in the retro
Time will have to tell if Swing Copter can capture the same balance of difficulty and frustration to keep players hooked, but an early hands-on from TouchArcade makes it sound as though it is a very sticky game. Swing Copters will be released next week, likely for iOS and Android, but that hasn't been confirmed. The game will be free to download, and have an in-app purchase of 99 cents to remove the ads.

At least now we know the real reason why he removed flappy bird: because it was copied from two sources: the French game Piou Piou in the play store with some elements from Mario Bros for the graphics. He didn't expect such a great success, and when he realized he could be sued, he promptly removed the game and found a copule of excuses. Now he submits a game with basically the same gameplay, but with some changes so that the original authors couldn't say that it's copied anymore.
