Flappy Birds Family, the free successor to the original mobile hit Flappy Bird, has finally landed.
As creator Dong Nguyen promised earlier this year, the press-to-flap mobile game has been revamped to include new features like multiplayer and additional obstacles to avoid.
Released through Nguyen's .Gears Studios, Flappy Birds Family is currently only available through Amazon's Appstore for Android, and only on the Fire TV platform. However, the game supports the Fire TV remote, in addition to its game controller.
"Flappy Birds now are on Amazon Fire TV with incredible new features: Person vs Person mode, more obstacles, more fun and still very hard," the application description reads. "Enjoy playing the game at home (not breaking your TV) with your family and friends."
There's no word as to whether the saga of Flappy Bird or its new family will make a return to Google Play or Apple's App Store, or mobile devices at all.
Flappy Bird originally soared to the top of the charts earlier this year on the wings of its easy-to-grasp, difficult-to-master gameplay, despite what we thought of it.
But just as quickly as it rose, creator Dong Ngyuen unceremoniously pulled down Flappy Bird at the height of the phenomenon, where it was earning $50,000 USD a day. He went on to state, "I can call 'Flappy Bird' is a success of mine. But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it."
