Confirmed taken down. This should be posted to N4G though, but w/e.
he blatantly cloned a 4years old game Piou Piou vs. Cactus then he run away with his bag of money.....Flappy Bird is the ultimate mobile game ripoff http://o.canada.com/technol...
It's a simple enough concept that he could have never heard of the other game and still made flappy bird.
And considering that there are dozens of similar games, older than Piou Piou, it might not be entirely fair to judge it as a clone (of Piou Piou specifically).

Jeez, people get butt hurt over where these stories go.... OT- Me thinks someone is afraid of copyright claims.
Who flapping cares. They are all crap games. But as in gaming,films, music. Most things incorporate other things already used, seen.
He's laughing all the way to the bank while users ponder to why they got heavily ripped off. Can't wait to see some class-action suits.
How could they get ripped off if they didn't pay for the app?
Ad revenue, Microtransactions all this jizt.
There are no microtransactions in this app. Ad revenue is a somewhat fair bargain because 1) Users had the choice to NOT play it. 2) You're essentially paying them back for their time to product the app. Obviously the 2nd point is debatable given that he may or may not have stolen the idea, but to say "ripped off", that would be a bit of an overstatement.
They made me view an ad before the game was taken down? GET MAH LAWYER ON THE PHONE
Not a issue, already a clone of it out there i.e. Flappy Wings.
it's a publicity stunt, developer plans to get more people to install this game so he can earn more, Though it's just an opinion but I doubt he will remove it today.
