Swing Copters

After months of countless Flappy Bird clones hitting the App Store, Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen is taking his best shot at hopefully cloning the success of his bizarrely popular iPhone game with a new title called Swing Copters.

According to Touch Arcade, which had an early peak at the game (Nguyen seems to be marketing this game despite pulling Flappy Bird for getting too popular), Swing Copters is just as challenging (therefore probably as addictive) as you pilot a helicopter upward through gates with menacing, swinging hammers that crash your flight on impact. The gaming site also has footage of early gameplay of the Flappy Bird successor as you can see below:

The official successor to Flappy Bird is said to be ready to soar on Thursday, August 21st, and be free with a single 99¢ in-app purchase to remove advertisements. Will Dong Nguyen’s next game be yet another hit or is the Flappy Bird concept too played out?

  1. Yippie! Another piece of garbage throwaway game on the App Store. Can’t wait to never consider downloading it! Also can’t wait for a month from now when it isn’t ever downloaded by anyone again!

  2. I reached 270 on flappy bird before my finger and brain gave out. Everyone is going to remove the ads for only 99 cents for sure. He is going to be mega rich! Pulling his game made him super famous.
