Dong Nguyen, creator of the smash hit mobile game Flappy Bird, is back with a new title, set to be released later this week called Swing Copters. As you can see, the game features similar graphics to FB, and from what we hear, it has similar gameplay.

According to TouchArcade, who has been given an early look at Swing Copters, the game gives players the same “just one more try” feeling as Flappy Bird did, and is even more challenging. We’ve posted a video showing the game in action below…

And here’s more on the gameplay from TouchArcade’s Eli Hodapp:

Swing Copters captures all the “just one more try” of Flappy Bird, and seems even more brutally difficult. In the game, you play as a little dude who has a propeller on his head. Swing Copters coaxes you to tap the screen, at which point you’re airborne, wildly flying to one side. Tapping changes your flight direction, and the goal is similar: Fly through as many gates and get as high as you can. Sort of similar to Flappy Bird, but going up instead of to the side.

Swing Copters will be available this Thursday, the 21st, as a free download, with a single in-app purchase of $0.99 to remove the ads. There’s still no word on the new version of Flappy Bird though, which we recently saw pop up on Amazon’s Fire TV platform.

    Can’t wait this looks like it might even be more addicting than Flappy Bird!

  • Anmol Malhotra

    Ok!
    Now wait for duplicate Swing Copters to flood the App Store top charts.. -.-

  • Merman123

    Just don’t get too into it or the developer might pull it from the AppStore. (????)

  • Jonathan

    • Capirexz

      Classic.

  • Tony

    Oh great, this guy again. When is he going to go back into hiding? Probably after this gets released and he freaks out…. again. Unreal hype behind such horribly coded material.

    • It was most likely a ploy to earn more publicity. After all, he did give a ton of notice that he was going to remove it. He just sat back and waited till the blogs updated with “OMG NO IT’S LEAVING”….

  • Nuno Xavier

    I mean he doesn’t even try to hide the original game idea, the flash game called “copter”..

    • I do see the eerie resemblance; only stuff he changed was the scrolling direction and slap on the typical Flabby Bird graphics. I think it’s obvious the developer isn’t original.

  • onesimpleclik

    Cue the Swing Copters clones clogging up the App Stores.

  • ARX8

    He might just pull it from AppStore a week after and make many souls restless

  • archer14

    I’m sure he’ll not release it because of the ‘stress’ and ‘overwhelming popularity’ and then he’ll request people to leave him alone, because everyone has been pulling their hair out after he removed flappy birds from the appstore. Rumor has it that folks have been sharpening their pitchforks in case he pulls out this time as well. The chose to live or die is his.

  • This is dumb.. he’s trying to make something as similar to Flappy Bird as possible while still being different.
