I never played Flappy Bird. I'm either way too hip or not hip enough. This...not sure how I feel about this. Anything FOB is usually just dandy though.

This is really really bad compared to Flappy Bird and Splashy Fish - yes, I know.

Lame, all these "tribute apps" trying to cash in on something that was original. It's almost a bummer to see that most of the top 25 free apps are flappy bird knockoffs, and even worse when you realize that's the case every time an app gets big (Words with friends, photo filter apps, photo collage apps, etc.)

Seriously? Flappy bird is original? Its mechanics and graphics were both shamelessly lifted from Super Mario Bros. which is almost 30 years old. It's about as original as pong

The finished project was an "original app" for all intents and purposes. The mario elements aren't trying to be passed off as their own and the mechanics are loosely based, which most video games are. In that line of thinking most 3D games are blatant imitations of Super Mario 64/OoT and all FPS are copying Goldeneye. There's a difference between basing a style on something while paying obvious homage to a classic video game and substituting a few sprites and re-releasing it to jump in on the cash grab.

Really? How?

I know you can mute the entire phone but I like to listen to music/podcasts while I play games on my commute.
