Flappy Bird

Flappy Bird

I was introduced to this game called ‘Flappy Bird’ like 2 weeks ago, and ever since I’ve been trying to get the best high score I can. I got stuck on 43 and can’t get any further than that. I don’t even get close… :( I was really addicted to that game for a while now, and I saw that the creator decided to take it off the Google Play Store and the Apple iOS app store.

So as if February 9th 2014 you won’t be able to download the game no more. Reason? “It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore” said Dong Nguyen creator of the game. I guess the $50,000 a day that he was making was too much for him. Apparently Flappy Bird was on the market for quite a long time, before it made it appearance as the number one (#1) app for both androids and apple.

In the last month, I saw bunch of videos (vines, Instagram and etc.) of the game and how people react to it.

But I guess the creator did not like it “…because how people use my game. They are over using it”

Since there is no more Flappy Bird. Other game creators decided to take this exact game and remake it. Two that I found are “Flappy Wings – Not Flappy Bird” and “IronPants”. Some people would say those games are a harder; I say these games just don’t have the best controls just like Flappy Bird had. I can barely get through one obstacle. LIKE WTF?!?!

Considering you can’t download Flappy Bird no more. People have come up with the idea of selling their phones with the game downloaded on them. I was so curious to see if that was actually true, I checked it online and guess what? Cellphones are getting sold from $100,000 to $6million. THAT’S INSANE!

To the people who still have the game. CHERRISH IT, LOVE IT, DON’T LET IT GO (unless you can sell it of course).I know I won’t! But HEY, I’m just living my life, having fun, and enjoy every day!
