One-time smartphone sensation "Flappy Bird" is coming back!
The creator of the addictive and deceptively difficult game tweeted that the game will be returning, but not too soon.
That's an about-face from last month, when [Dong] Nguyen, in a rare interview, told Forbes that "Flappy Bird" was "gone forever."
Originally released last May, "Flappy Bird" had largely languished before a surge in popularity, starting around December, that would see it become the most downloaded app in both Apple's App Store and the Google Play store for Android devices.
At the time of its demise, "Flappy Bird" had an average four-star rating from more than 543,000 reviews in the Apple App Store and 228,000 on Android. Many of the reviews were lengthy, tongue-in-cheek tales of time lost, marriages ended and people going cuckoo after playing the game.
