Flappy Bird Makes Triumphant Return, Available as “Flappy Birds Family” Exclusively on Amazon Appstore

You were really missing Flappy Bird, weren’t you? Well don’t worry, because it is now available to anyone who owns a Fire TV through the Amazon Appstore, titled Flappy Birds Family.

It is the same Flappy Bird as it was before, but as reported previously, it now features a multiplayer function. If you have two game controllers for your Fire TV, you can take on your friends, seeing who can get the furthest through the tubes.
