Fall Out Boy announce Flappy Bird Spin-off

After Dong Nguyen buckled under the pressure of fame Flappy Bird was removed from the App Store and Google Play, creating a void in many people’s app gaming habits. Fall Out Boy have announced a spin-off of the hugely popular but no longer available app: Fall Out Bird. The spinoff copies the design and play style of Flappy Bird, but features Fall Out Boy member’s heads with wings. Fans are reacting positively to this announcement, with #FallOutBird already trending on Twitter.

Fall Out Boy are accustomed to adjusting popular games with their likenesses, for example Fall Out Boy Trail in 2009, a FOB version of Oregon Trail, the nostalgic computer game enjoyed by 90’s kids alike. Fall Out Bird is due for release on the App Store and Google Play this week once it has been approved.
