Flying John is already available for Android in the Google Play store and will be available on iOS and Facebook later this month. The game will give players a new and fully customizable experience. An experience with the ability to unlock new birds and change the game’s background via coins earned through successful play.
Stefan Gaasbeek, owner of G-Projects said of the Flying John launch, “When Flappy Bird went viral and received millions of plays we knew we had to create the perfect follow-up. We’ve brought a lot of thought to this project and we’re confident that by giving the gamer the ability to customize their own experience it not only makes the game increasingly fun, it makes it all the more addicting.”
