Do you feel like you hate yourself to a sufficient degree? If not, Dotgears has just the thing—Swing Copters 2. It's the sequel to the original Swing Copters.

Rovio's First Non-Angry Birds Game In Over A Year Is The Surprisingly Good Flappy Bird Clone RETRY

You have to look back pretty far to find a Rovio game that doesn't star aggravated avians. Last year the company developed the official mobile game for the unremarkable Dreamworks movie The Croods, but before that you have to look all the way back to Amazing Alex in 2012.

You have an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the latest gaming craze to sweep the nation—Swing Copters. It's like Flappy Bird, but vertical. Yeah, it goes up instead of to the right. Revolutionary. This is the second game from Dong Nguyen of .GEARS Studios, and will presumably be the first one he doesn't unpublish for mysterious reasons in a few months. It's free with ads, but the supposed in-app purchase to remove them doesn't seem to be present in the Android version.

Flappy Bird's Creator Dong Nguyen Unveils His Upcoming Game 'Swing Copters,' Aka Upward Flappy Bird

When developer Dong Nguyen first released Flappy Bird, it took the Apple App Store and Google Play by storm. Some people called the game addictive. Some thought of it as brilliant in its simplicity. We here at Android Police were so bold as to call it apparently entertaining. Well now the developer is back and ready to bestow upon the world a follow-up game that looks just as mindbogglingly and unreasonably frustrating - Swing Copters.
