Angry Birds developers reveal Flappy Bird-inspired mobile game Retry

Retry is the next game from developers originally behind the release of Angry Birds; But despite its ties to the Finnish game studio Rovio, the new mobile title appears to be more influenced by the addictive gameplay of the now infamous Flappy Bird.

In Retry, players pilot a plane while performing loop-de-loops to manoeuvre under and around obstacles. The game's description on the App Store emphasizes its difficulty, saying "It's called Retry for a reason!" Like in Flappy Bird, players can expect to fail at the game repeatedly and will be encouraged to continuously retry from the start.

"From the guys sitting in the room next to the guys who made Angry Birds, comes RETRY: a game so hard, so addictive, so old school that you'll think you've stepped into an 8-bit time machine," reads a description from the makers of the game.

No release date has been announced just yet; however, the latest trailer for the game promises it will launch "soon."

In early 2014, indie developer Dong Nguyen announced his plans to remove his wildly popular release Flappy Bird from the App Store, stating he no longer wanted attention from the media. The removal of this mobile title resulted in a huge number of spin-offs based on the game.
