Return of the bird?
Flappy Bird may fly again.
Roughly one month after deleting the game from the Apple and Android app stores, Dong Nguyen says he’s having second thoughts. But if the game comes back, it’ll be a bit different.

The new version, though, would come with a warning asking players -- heck, pleading with them -- to take a break occasionally.Read More »from ‘Flappy Bird’ creator considering bringing the game back
