Scam artists seeking to capitalise on the demise of popular mobile game Flappy Bird have released harmful clones.

Apps that appeared to be identical to the original have been designed to trick users into sending premium rate text messages.

The malicious apps were found in Google's Android store, security firm Trend Micro reported.

The real Flappy Bird creator said he deleted the app as it was "addictive".
