Flappy Bird is almost a complete ripoff of a 2011 iOS game called Piou Piou vs. Cactus.
and piou piou is slightly less of a rip off of helicopter. http://www.helicoptergame.n... original art is just a matter of hiding the sources ;)
Helicopter is fuuuuuuuuunnnn
Oh gawd NO! >.> score 304 :( It gets harder when you go farther.
Yup, I mention that in the first paragraph. Piou Piou is a much more blatant ripoff though.
That's a ripoff of another game which is a ripoff of ANOTHER game and so on and so forth... The same argument has been applied to mega franchises like Angry Birds, to no real avail. The fact that art assets are so blatantly ripped from famous games is something that surprises me, above all else. Well, aside from the fact that this horribly programmed garbage-tier game is receiving such a huge surge of undeserved popularity, that is. I really hope the creator finds himself in legal trouble soon.
ultimate rip off of the first one not being as super succesful tons of complete rip offs of super succesful games like fruit ninja and minecraft
Total ripoff of Madden NFL '99.
you got it wrong its a total rip off of NFL 2k
Clearly a ripoff of Call of Duty Ghost II.
All iOS games are rip offs at this point.
Why and how is this game even popular?
Because people can't seem to stop talking about it (positive or negative), for whatever reason :(
I think you all are putting too much thought into a game that is meant to be played whilst taking a dump.
Is it bad that I kept laughing when I died? Because I couldn't get past like 10 points and after that I just laughed over and over and over
I've said it before and I'll say it again. There's only 10 to 15 original games on IOS/android and the rest are clones.
Seriously? You expect us to care if its a rip-off or not? This game?
I thought he was going to say it was a ripoff of helicopter game. To my (limited) knowledge, THAT'S the original... This guy ripped off a guy who ripped off another guy, who ripped off 10 more. At this point, who cares, he got lucky. If you keep writing articles about it, it will continue to validate the practice, since the attention will lead to more downloads.
Whooooooo caresssss. Jealous assholes.
