Flappy Bird is back, but only on Amazon's Fire TV!!
After several months flying under the radar, Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen is back with his latest game: Flappy Birds Family. The game is, however, only available to download on Amazon's Android App Store, and only works with Amazon's Fire TV set-top box. In our tests, we couldn't install the game on an Android phone. Otherwise, the new game is much like the old one, but includes local multiplayer and more obstacles.
Or, perhaps Nguyen cut a deal with Amazon to help drive Fire TV sales. The game is listed for free, but includes no ads, seemingly. Flappy Bird has already proven to be quite the system-seller, and could definitely qualify as a "killer app" to some. We might get answers to these questions in the coming days. In the meantime, get that trigger-finger ready, then cross it, and hope Nguyen releases Flappy Birds Family for other platforms.
