Even though the Flappy Bird madness is finally dying down since the game was removed from the App Store, this doesn’t mean it isn’t popular anymore. The demand has been so high for Flappy Bird that developers have been trying to desperately “cash in.”
According to a report released by The Guardian there have been close to 100 Flappy Bird clones hitting the iTunes AppStore almost everyday. This means almost 1 / 3 of iOS games being released are Flappy Bird clones (a scary thought I know). The vast majority of these will sink without trace, of course, but it is still a staggering number.
At it’s height Flappy Bird was making $50,000 / day so it is obvious why developers want to try to replicate that same success. And a lot of developers have gotten close, if you look at the top 5 games in the US they fall in the Flappy genre – Flappy Wings, Hoppy Frog, Flying Cyrus – Wrecking Ball and Splashy Fish.
Although it was reported Flappy Bird clones were getting rejected, it doesn’t look like Apple has been very successful enforcing that rule. With that said most of these clones will be forgotted
