We just can’t seem to get rid of Flappy Bird eh? Well this latest spinoff on the interent features Toronto mayor Rob Ford, that mayor who gained much media attention over the last few months.
The game is simple, and follows the same mechanics as Flappy Bird. Simply tap the space button or left click on your mouse in order to guide the “Rob Ford bird” through pipes in a Toronto backdrop. When you hit a pipe, it features famous lines Ford has uttered to the media. Quite an amusing way to kill a few minutes.
Just a few weeks ago, creator of Flappy Bird Dong Nguyen deleted Flappy Bird from the iOS and Google Play stores. He took to Twitter stating, “I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.”
This game is one of many Flappy Bird spinoffs appearing on the internet, iOS store and Google Play store. Just be careful especially on Google Play to avoid malware infected apps that will take over your device and send premium text messages.
You can enjoy the game at the website www.flappyford.com.
So is Flappy Bird really dead? Many still seem to want to cash in on the success of the game. So be prepared to see more spin offs in the near future, at least just for the next couple months.
My opinion on a Rob Ford inspired spinoff of Flappy Bird? Hilarious.
