By now most gamers have already had their fill of Flappy Bird, the mobile title that broke onto the scene, generated a surprising amount of backlash, and then disappeared. It’s one of the stranger stories to have come around in recent weeks, and it focused on a game that was extremely popular but almost universally disliked. As the game’s developer Dong Nguyen puts it, the simultaneous success and hate for Flappy Bird were too much to bear, and so he thought it better to nip the whole thing in the bud.
Unfortunately, deleting Flappy Bird from the iOS and Android app store meant those gamers who were curious will never know the joys (we use that term loosely) that the game offers. But, there are still titles, better known as endless runners, that we think not only scratch the same itch but are also much better games. Check out our list of the 5 games that are better than Flappy Bird.
