Flappy Bird is coming back to the App Store (but not for awhile)


Enjoyed your time without the joy (or hell) of tapping your screen and making that pixel bird fly? Don’t get too complacent, it’s coming back. The creator of Flappy Bird confirmed on Twitter on Wednesday that the game will eventually return to the App Store.

After the game’s rapid media rise, Dong Nguyen abruptly pulled the game from the iOS App and Google Play stores. The Vietnam-based developer apparently took the game down because he’d been hounded by the press and had been uneasy about what the game was doing to its players. In an interview with Rolling Stone, he mentioned people who had lost their jobs, a mother who had stopped speaking with her children, and school children who had smashed their phones.
