Hello fellow developers!

I’m Atanas Mishev, co-founder of PixBros Studios. I am here to present to you our first game - Angry Fly, which I can boldly say that is the King of Flappy Bird’s clones!

For almost three years we developing Angry Fly, with the idea of being more than just a clone, but also a game with rich functionality and great potential. Two games inspire us in the creation of our title. We wanted to combine casual simple gameplay of Flappy Bird, which every mobile gamer would play easily and to add RPG elements of classic game like Diablo, namely leveling system, items that gives priority or variety in the gameplay, achievements, secret levels, leaderboards and much much more.
 

OUR WORKING PROCCESS

In February 2014 we started with 4 people team and idea to create Angry Fly. A few months later, two people have abandoned the project. The remaining two of us, continue to grow in our professions in different companies (I'm digital marketing specialist, and my parner is senior java developer). Meanwhile, in our spare time we developing Angry Fly.

You will ask: Who is playing Flappy Bird anymore? I will answer that there are currently over 20 million users who have installed on their phones clones of Flappy Bird and who continue to play every day.
