It’s been a long time since I featured a game here at menardconnect.com. And since this Flappy Bird game is such a hit let me do some Flappy Bird Cheats post.
Flappy Bird is really an addicting game for most people. I am not really sure why. Maybe because its so simple and yet so difficult. The game was released last year (around May 2013) and was removed from both Apple AppStore and Google Play last week.
The first Flappy Bird Cheat I found out was this: there were lots of Flappy Bird cheaters out there. By cheaters I mean really nasty people creating and releasing fake and malicious apps and games. They are taking advantage that the author have removed it from the App Store and Google Play. Quoting my colleagues report at Trendlabs Security Intel Blog
The interesting turn of events surrounding the game Flappy Bird has had the Internet buzzing: after becoming massively popular (downloaded more than 50 million times), the developer suddenly announced that he will take down the game from app stores, and then actually did it. The decision brought the interest around the game to an even greater scale, with similar apps seen emerging in app stores, and even auctions for devices with the app installed.
The next development we saw, however, is a less desirable one: we found a bunch of fake Android Flappy Bird apps spreading online”

Its really sad to see that bad guys (read: cybercriminals) are always up-to-date on the latest buzz and trends. And they will take each opportunity to constantly make money/quick bucks on popular games (like Flappy Bird and Temple Run 2). I guess because that’s where the money is.
While sharing and tweeting that gaming/security blog post last week:
