Flappy Bird came and went in a blink of an eye. But the popular game may live on through similar apps, according to a Feb. 18 report on Yahoo.

It’s been rumored that developers are looking to recreate the Flappy Bird app. They’re quickly trying to release similar versions of the game through Apple’s iTunes and Google’s Play. Both Apple and Google have been taking a strong stance against the knockoff versions.

One way that developers can bring back Flappy Bird is to trademark the name and work on a game that recreates the popular version. There already have been seven filings for the name. These companies want to reintroduce the app as a mobile game.

OneClick Studios is one of the companies that’s looking to cash in on the name. The company has already registered for a trademark. Phandroid reports that the company already has an app that’s more polished than the original and will become more popular than its clones.

OneClick’s Flappy Bird version comes with basic features and additional features like tracking achievements and leader boards. The game will be made available through Apple and Google if it gets a trademark. For now, fans will have to settle for Angry Birds instead.
