This Is The Number One Flappy Bird Alternative In The Apple App Store

Megan Rose Dickey

Now that you can't download Flappy Bird anymore, a bunch of developers are creating clones of the game. 

In Flappy Bird, you have to help a bird fly safely through a bunch of obstacles by furiously tapping your screen. But over the  weekend, Flappy Bird developer Nguyen Ha Dong took down the game, saying that he just couldn't take it anymore

People who have already downloaded the game will still be able to play Flappy Bird on their devices. Those who didn't get a chance to download the game before it got pulled will have to settle for these alternatives, many of which are skyrocketing to the top of the Apple Store charts. 

Fly Birdie - Flappy Bird Flyer is the No. 1 top free app in the app store.

Ironpants has a bit of a different take on the bird construction, and replaces the bird with a caped superhero. It's currently No. 2 in the free apps for iOS. It's also available for Android.

Flappy Bee, which is available for both iOS and Android, is No. 3 in the top free iOS apps. It's basically a nicer version of Flappy Bird, but with bees instead of birds.
