Surprise, surprise. Flappy Bird, the cultural phenomenon that came and went in just a few short weeks, might be making its way back to the app store. Its creator had originally said he couldn't handle the sudden fame, although it was estimated that he was racking in tens of thousands of dollars in ad revenue every day. Now, after creating an artificial demand for his game, he's let the dust settle and is considering bringing it back in the near future.
There aren't many games that let you build up amazing rollercoaster rides that end with the track suddenly dropping out and the death of thousands of your guests.

A brand new Jailbreak hack allows for users of iOS 7 to play controller-compatible games with a PlayStation Dualshock 3 controller. This is great news for those that want a controller for their phone but don't necessarily want to buy something new to go with it. It's easy to set up - presuming you already know the basics of a hacked phone - and will no doubt change the way some people play games on their phone.
It was the surprise fantasy detective story of 2013, but unfortunately Telltale's The Wolf Among Us disappeared of a lot of radars when the developer announced episode two wouldn't be available until 2014. Now, with the first episode of season two of The Walking Dead out of the way, Telltale have announced a more specific release date: the first week of February.
More than two years on, Angry Birds Rio has probably been lost in the mess of Star Wars spin-offs that the top casual franchise has released in the time since, but that's not stopping the developers from releasing an update to celebrate the release of Rio 2.
Well, after a rather explosive episode of The Walking Dead aired this week, I’m sure we’re all hoping to find some way of getting our franchise fix to tide us over until the show continues in February next year. “Coincidentally,” TellTale is on hand to provide.
