Flappy Bird creator’s new game shoots up charts
Six months after pulling down his phenomenally successful app “Flappy Bird” from app stores, the Vietnamese developer behind the viral hit has a new hit game in stores—and there are signs it might be every bit as addictive to gamers as his first.
“Swing Copters” hit both the Apple and Google app stores Thursday morning and is already garnering high praise from critics and players. It’s moving up the charts at a phenomenal pace, too. As of 2 p.m. ET, the game was already the 47th most popular app in all of Apple’s store—and the 12th most popular game.
