Flappy Bird + Fall Out Boy = Fall Out Bird

If you’ve been following the weird saga of the iOS game Flappy Bird, you’ll know that its Vietnamese creator, Dong Nguyen pulled the game from the Apple App Store this week even though he was pull in $50,000 a day. Weird.

Now that Nguyen has taken his bird and gone home, other developers have moved in to fill the breach with all sorts of derivatives:  Crappy Bird, Flappy Bee, Splashy Fish and even Flappy Doge. .  (Be careful, though.  Some of the fake Flappy Birds games are loaded with malware.)

Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy is on board, too.  Check out Fall out Bird.
