Createrria isn't Flapping Around - Will Add the Option for Users to Make Their Own "Flappy" Games Next Month
Createrria is an interesting little tool/game creation kit that's about to get even interesting-er. The upcoming "Eclipse" update will add a new graphical theme, new 'triggered door' and 'moving saw' items, sky backgrounds, more avatar stuff, performance enhancements, and the ability for users to create their own "flappy" style games.
That's right, come early March you'll be able to stop lamenting the untimely loss of Flappy Bird and simply make one for yourself.
Gamespot reports that Apple has started to put the kibosh on new app/game submissions that use the word "flappy." It seems as though a number of developers have been weighing in, saying that their various entries containing the word have been barred because they're using it to "leverage a popular app."
You can check out the full story over at Gamespot. But really, can you blame Apple? This sort of thing (trying to cash-in on another game's popularity by using specific words) happens all too regularly on the App Store, and I think it's about time they made more of an attempt to stop it.
