​Take Out Your Anger At Flappy Bird By Murdering It

Yes, it's on the top of the App Store charts but Flappy Bird is hella annoying. The hit mobile game is hard, derivative and devoid of almost all charm. If you've played it, you've probably wished you could kill the titular character. A new browser game lets you do exactly that.

Squishy Bird automatically sends wave after wave of sad-looking flying animals across a screen that looks a lot like that of Flappy Bird. But once that lurching avian gets between two of those really familiar looking pipes, one mouse click pulverizes it (them, if you do more than one) into a bloody, liquefied mess. Squishy may be a crass, quickie effort meant to ride Flappy's own dubious coattails but it feels better—cathartic, even—to play. Consider a way to detox from the most popular game in Apple's mobile ecosystem.
