Kanye West Gets The Flappy Bird Treatment

When Flappy Bird was removed from the App Store last month, millions of people who had yet to experience the ultra-addictive game were spared. The rest of us had already surrendered a good chunk of our lives to the Cult of Flappy — and envied those who hadn't. You guys still had your jobs, your family, and your lives. We didn't.
But, if you're dying to see what all the fuss is about, fear not. Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen recently tweeted that he would be bringing the game back sooner than later. Until then, a Flappy Bird knock-off called Flying Yeezus has hit the store, and is available for free download now. Instead of a bird, users must guide Kanye West's giant head through obstacles by tapping up and down. The obstacles should be the paparazzi, the old school fashion establishment, haters, award shows, the media, and conformity. Unfortunately they're just giant pillars. Still addictive, though.
