It's game over for Flappy Bird, the life-ruining side scroller that charmed millions of users with its maliciously difficult gameplay. Over the weekend, Vietnam-based developer Dong Nguyen tweeted his intention to take down the extremely popular mobile game because it "ruins my simple life," enraging an entire community of screen-tapping addicts.
I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore.

Luckily, we found several alternatives that induce the same manic fury and addiction as Flappy Bird, so you won't have to suffer any withdrawals.
