Default Flopping Bird: a non-crappy clone, Free and WITHOUT ADS !

Hey all! Wanna take a look at this?

Yes, I know. Just another lame Flappy Bird clone. This one, however, has NO ADS at all (neither IAPs, btw), and is quite playable and polished... unlike most others, which show you something like a thousand annoying ads for every tap, and are much crappier than the original...

But don't take my biased word for it. Please give it a try and judge it for yourselves:

It's really interesting.
Overall graphics are better than Flappy Crap's. Looks like an Amiga port (good one) of an SNES game.
Bird's movement is way smoother.
It's slightly more difficult.

Anyway, I'm addicted again!
Very nice one.

Wondering how the guy is making money. Maybe, just trying to get some attention.

Just how many lame clones are these money grabbing devs going to make before this 'flappy' fad is dead and buried?

Why is the Flappy craze what pushed you over the edge? It's not like these devs would have been making something like God of War before.

IMHO, the Flappy Bird phenomenon gave new hope to a hoard of tired indie developers.

A lot of those indie focused on games (that I know) were moving away to Windows Phone 8 development.
Apparently, 90% of those hate Android!

Perhaps, but I heard WP8 devs are not doing very well...
