Rovio tries its hand at capturing the Flappy Bird audience


3:15 PM on 05.06.2014



The Flappy Bird developer pulled his game from the public marketplace because the copious sums of money weren't worth the stress of the spotlight. Angry Birds developer Rovio has no problem being in the spotlight, and as such, it's created Retry which looks to be somewhat inspired by the movements and aesthetics of Flappy Bird.

In Retry, you pilot a tenuously-controlled plane through increasingly difficult levels. The goal is to make it to the end of each stage, but there are coins that can be collected that unlock checkpoints along the way.

Retry will be free-to-play when it hits all regions (it's only in a few now, including Canada and Poland), but Rovio wouldn't say "no" if you wanted to give them some of your cash. The game includes coin packs that can be bought, in the event that you're too lazy to collect your own.
