Swing Copters is the new game from the creator of Flappy Bird

Posted on August 19, 2014 AT 04:35am

The next game from Dong Nguyen, the creator of the surprisingly successful Flappy Bird, is titled Swing Copters, according to Touch Arcade.

The site reports hat the game will be available this Thursday, August 21 for free, with the option to pay 99 cents to remove the advert at the top of the game.

Swing Copters works slightly different (only slightly) to Flappy Bird. Instead of constantly traveling right and tapping to go up and down, players will now travel up and tap to move left and right. The aim is to get as high as possible while avoiding the swinging hammers and scaffolding.

Flappy Bird became an overnight success earlier this year before Nguyen removed it from both the iOS and Google Play stores. He later revealed that he removed the game from both stores due it becoming too addictive.
