Flappy Bird Creator Teams up With Japanese Firm to Release Ninja-Themed Mobile Game

Last week, Flappy Bird creator Nguyen Ha Dong and Japanese firm OBOKAIDEM Games introduced a new, yet familiar, eight-bit game, Ninja Spinki Challenges, to mobile users around the globe.

According to VnExpress, Ninja Spinki Challenges requires gamers to have “a good mix of dexterity and fast reactions to tap and swipe through levels” similar to its older sibling, Flappy Bird.

“What should I do when it comes to the point of frustration?” a player asked sarcastically, referring to the game's difficulty, reports the news outlet.

While there are complaints of the current sensitivity settings, Ninja Spinki Challenges has been well-received so far: Android users have rated it 4.6 out of five stars, while iOS users rank the game 4.5 out of five.

Gamer Hoang Long Tran gave a five-star review of the game on Google Play. “This is one of the most enjoyable games so far [I] ever played,” Tran wrote. “If you love Flappy Bird, you gotta try this one out.”

When Dong is not busy creating addictive mobile games or having lemon tea with Google CEO Sundar Pichai, the young game designer also lends a hand to other inventors: last month, he announced that he had set aside VND1 billion (US$44,100) of his personal wealth to fund student tech projects.
