Remember Flappy Bird? The ridiculously addictive mobile game that made most of its players to pull out their hair in frustration? Its developer Dong Nguyen has revealed his next game, Swing Copters which seems far more difficult, in case Flappy Bird was too easy for you.
The newly announced game is played exactly like Flappy Bird where players must pass through narrow gaps to earn points. However, instead of going right, the players will now rise upwards with two swaying hammers guarding each gap.
Nguyen has confirmed via his Twitter feed that the game will launch simultaneously on Android and iOS based devices. And although Nguyen didn’t reveal any release date, Touch Arcade has confirmed that the game will launch on Aug. 21, 2014. Yes, in about three days time.

Like its predecessor, Swing Copter will be a free download and will be supported by ads which can be removed by paying $0.99/£0.69.
We have also got our hands on the first gameplay demonstration, showing how the game is played and more importantly, how annoying will it turn out to be! Check it out above.
