Eventually we will all forget about Flappy Bird and find something else to obsess about. But until then, we have to fill the emptiness created when the app was pulled.

Similar apps are still available in either store for Android and iOS alike, but what about Pebble smartwatch users? Well, thanks to Stuart Harrell, Pebble users can play Tiny Bird while on the go, as reported by Smartwatch Fans.

The free app is available in Pebble's own app store and works on both the Pebble and Pebble Steel. iOS users currently have access to the app store, with Android users having to install a beta version of the Pebble app to use the app store.

Unfortunately Pebble doesn't offer a way to link directly to apps in its store, so you'll have to do the legwork to install the game on your watch. Search the store for "Tiny Bird," and it will be the only result.

Tiny Bird brings the same level of difficulty found in Flappy Bird along with the port, perhaps upping it a notch due to the fact it is on a watch.

Happy flapping!
