Does anyone still care about Flappy Bird? It's been nearly six months since creator Dong Nguyen unceremoniously yanked the simplistic game, saying it was for people's own good.

But as promised, Flappy Bird flies again. Nguyen's development studio, .Gears, has put the game back on the Amazon Appstore—though only seemingly for the Fire TV. The game is not, as of yet, available on mobile devices, and can't be found in either the official Google Play store or Apple's App Store.

"Flappy Birds now are on Amazon Fire TV with incredible new features: Person vs Person mode, more obstacles, more fun and still very hard. Enjoy playing the game at home (not breaking your TV) with your family and friends," reads the description.

Flappy Bird can be played with both the Fire TV remote and the separate controller. I wouldn't recommend buying a Fire TV solely for gaming but hey, the option's out there.

But again, does anyone care? There have been so many Flappy Bird clones—from Grand Theft Auto IV to the Apple II—it's hard to imagine anyone hasn't gotten their fix yet. Considering Nguyen pulled the app because he thought it was "too addictive," maybe his plan worked perfectly.
