About

Flappy Bird is a mobile game in which the player controls a flying bird by touching the screen to flap its wings and navigate between a series of pipes without any contact.

Origin

Flappy Bird was created by Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen[5] and released by dotGears Studios on Apple's iOS app store[1] on May 24th, 2013. In the game, the player assumes the role of a pixelated flying bird and must guide it safely through a series of obstacles while keeping it afloat by pressing on the touch screen.



Spread

On November 17th, 2013, Redditor Bronxsta included Flappy Bird in a list of "masochistic" iOS games submitted to the /r/iosgaming[2] subreddit. On January 17th, 2014, Redditor Transizzleator submitted a post urging viewers to "help Flappy Bird take off" to the /r/gaming[3] subreddit. On January 27th, YouTuber PewDiePie uploaded a video in which he plays Flappy Bird (shown below), which gathered more than 5.4 million views and 45,000 comments in the next week.



On January 30th, the game was released on the Google Play[10] store. By the following day, the game had reached the top downloaded spot on both Google Play and the Apple App Stores.[4] Also on January 31st, the iPhone app company Chocolate Lab Apps[7] published an interview with Nguyen about Flappy Bird's success, who claimed he did not promote the game at all. Meanwhile, the tech blog Bluecloud Solutions[6] published an article speculating that Flappy Bird used bots to artificially augment its App Store rank, pointing out the strange sudden rise in popularity of Nguyen's apps and several similarly-worded reviews left on the Flappy Bird store page (shown below).

On February 1st, the tech news blog Tech Crunch[8] published an article about Flappy Bird, noting that his other games "Super Ball Juggling" and "Shuriken Block" had reached the App Store's #2 and #6 spots respectively. On February 2nd, Redditor ducksizedhorses submitted a post comparing Flappy Bird to the flash game titled "Helicopter Game" to the /r/gaming[9] subreddit, where it accumulated upwards of 14,600 up votes and 770 comments in the first 24 hours. The same day, Redditor H00PSHER posted a screenshot of a Flappy Bird game with edited Nyan Cat-themed textures to the /r/teenagers[12] subreddit (shown below, left). On February 3rd, Redditor VirtualWhopper posted a Flappy Bird image macro with the caption "You don't win / You just eventually delete the app" to the /r/gaming[13] subreddit (shown below, right).


YOU DON'T WIN GEE REad TAP YOU JUST EVENTUALLY DELETE THE APP

Removal From App Stores

On February 8th, 2014, Nguyen tweeted that although Flappy Bird was a success, he hated the game for ruining his “simple life.” Several hours later, Nguyen posted a follow-up tweet announcing that he would be removing Flappy Bird from app stores in 22 hours, adding that it had “nothing to do with legal issues.”[18] The same day, Redditor iamacowgod submitted a screenshot of the tweet to the /r/gaming[14] subreddit, where it gained over 18,800 up votes and 3,800 comments in the first 48 hours.





On February 9th, the game was taken down from both the iOS app store and Google Play. The same day, Redditor city18 posted a backup copy of the Android version of the game to the /r/AndroidApps[15] subreddit. Also on February 19th, Redditor moonchav posted a link to a text only version[17] of the game to the /r/WebGames[16] subreddit. In the coming days, the app removal was reported on by several news sites, including IBI Times,[19] CNN[20] and CNET.[21]

In a February 2014 interview with Forbes[26], Nguyen explained that he felt compelled to cancel the game due to its addictive nature.

"Flappy Bird was designed to play in a few minutes when you are relaxed. But it happened to become an addictive product. I think it has become a problem. To solve that problem, it's best to take down Flappy Bird. It's gone forever."


Nintendo's Statement

Despite Nguyen's statement, rumors soon began to spread on gaming-related discussion forums that the creator of Flappy Bird decided to remove the app due to legal pressure from the Japanese video game company Nintendo, whose universally popular Super Mario video games has been frequently cited by the critics of Flappy Bird as the source of its inspiration. On February 10th, Nintendo's spokesman officially denied the rumors of legal threats or future plans for such action.

Planned Re-release

However, in March 2014, Nguyen refused to rule out the possibility of a relaunch in an interview with Rolling Stone, followed by an announcement of his plan to eventually re-release the game, and revealed that the game would return in August with multiplayer capability in an interview with CNBC's Kelly Evans.

On May 15th, 2014, Nguyen tweeted[25] a photo which he suggested was part of a new game he is developing.

Notable Parodies

Shortly after Ngyuen's announcement of the removal of Flappy Bird from app stores, several parody versions of the game for iOS, Android and web browsers began to surface. A text-only version of Flappy bird titled “The Pipes Are My Solitude” was posted on the website Philome,[23] which displays descriptions of a bird flying through pipes each time the player clicks the word “Flap” (shown below).


The Pipes Are My You are a small bird. Behind you is a caustic Solitude lue sky. Below you is green, green grass. Flap a game-poem by James Shasha Restart Bookmark

A browser game Flappy Doge[22] was created, in which the player clicks the screen to navigate the "Doge" Shibu Inu character in between pipes (shown below, left). The Nicolas Cage-themed Flappy Bird mod was released on iOS, in which the player controls the actor's disembodied head (shown below, right).



A modification featuring a tipping fedora which navigates through cans of mountain dew was made available for both iOS and Android (shown below, left). In addition, a Super Mario Flappy Bird mod was released on iOS, in which the player controls the character Mario to jump in between pipes (shown below, right). The Flash game "Flappy Bird Therapy"[24] is an easy version of the game, which moves the pipe gaps in sync with the bird's height.

        No, I wasn’t saying that there aren’t good games on mobiles. There are indeed some decent game. What I was saying is that people who their main platform for games is mobile, and I assume tablet, simply don’t have good taste. It’s basically like “oh, it’s a shooter, I like shooters” and they instinctively like it (or vice verse) ,without putting quality in place. There are a lot of people like that in my area.

          Thing is, low-quality games like this are usually either free or 99 cents. People are lured in by the cheapness, get addicted, and then pay exorbitant prices to cheat when playing against friends. I kid you not, Bike Race has one ludicrously overpowered DLC bike that costs $30.

          I think there's just a way lower expectation of the game being any good on mobile so pretty much anything will do as long as it's simple and doesn't crash.

      No, not really. I just think CoD aren't of very good quality. I don't mind if others play them, I just question their taste in games. They're all more of the same thing usually. Even fans of the series get bored of the games relatively quickly. I actually think CoD is WAY better than these atrocious mobile #1 "games" if you could even call them that.

    This makes me so mad. Like, really unusually mad.
    Take a game that has been around for ages and ages (Helicopter), code up a version of it that's lazy, shallow, trite and uninteresting, give it a grand total of four sound effects and no music, give it sprites very clearly made by making small changes to the warp pipe and cheep-cheep sprites from Super Mario Bros., and millions will play it.
    Meanwhile, creative, original content that has a tremendous amount of effort and love poured into it struggles to make a profit.

    Mobile gaming industry in a nutshell:

    1. Some free to play game gets popular.
    2. Said game becomes highly viral.
    3. Over 9000 rehashes of the same game just with a slightly different theme saturates the market, and with exorbitant in-app purchases.
    4. If one of the 9000 rehashes somehow got popular, it will be considered as an original concept.
    5. Unoriginal/stolen game gets popular.
    6. Over 9000 rehashes of a rehashed game appears again, along with merchandises and even more in-app micro-transactions.
    7. Repeat steps 4-6.

    Okay this account was made just minutes ago, but I felt I had to do it because of the amount of ire I was feeling reading the comments.

    Things like "good riddance," Dong having the shred of humanity to delete his "game." Countdown to its removal. claims that he was gonna get sued, and general annoyance, even condemnation, over making so much money over a simple game.

    Well guess what? You're right it is a shitty game. It does not however deserve the amount of hate placed upon it or its creator. He himself didn't expect anything from it and was surprised as much as anyone one of you over how much it blew up.

    -16
    • PasserbyLurker - 10 years ago

      Moreover, did any of you consider Dong's own circumstance? He lives in fking Vietnam. He went from obscurity to global fame in an instant. Can you imagine what kind of messages he must be getting across the world? Complaints that his game is shit, that he is an unoriginal game maker, that he's ruining the game industry with the crap he put out, when really he didn't ask for any of this. This isn't even counting the amount of press, extended family, and general heat that must be getting put on him for instantly becoming rich. Money doesn't necessarily equate to happiness after all, especially if it overturns your entire life. Is it any wonder that he removed the game?

      My point is criticize the game all you want, but don't condemn or demonize someone for the crime of accidentally becoming famous. Seriously, for all the complaints you guys have about other sites' communities you need to look at your own.

    • Ingway - 10 years ago

      I'm guessing because the game is extremely simplistic and uses assets from other games (like the pipe from super mario), and most of all, because such a simple game gave the guy toons of money and a certain level of fame.

      I think that hate would be be alright if he was a douchbag, but he basically gave up because he didn't like being in the spotlight, not to mention he was making toons of money out of ad revenue.

      • Cian - 10 years ago

        But the fact that it's simplistic shouldn't matter, all of these mobile games are. I see how people might have thought he was getting too close to Super Mario World's art style (even though he used original art assets and the gameplay was completely different) but if that's really a problem let Nintendo take care of it, it's not like a multi-billion dollar game company needs people defending them so viciously.

        As for the tons of money, he made a game a lot of people liked. If lots of people liked his game, why is that a problem instead of an achievement? He doesn't seem like someone who expected or wanted the fame either, that part was thrust upon him by the gaming media apparently against his will. Everything I've read seems to indicate that he's a pretty reclusive guy, even giving up on making more money because he didn't want any more attention.

      But the fact that it's simplistic shouldn't matter, all of these mobile games are. I see how people might have thought he was getting too close to Super Mario World's art style (even though he used original art assets and the gameplay was completely different) but if that's really a problem let Nintendo take care of it, it's not like a multi-billion dollar game company needs people defending them so viciously.

      As for the tons of money, he made a game a lot of people liked. If lots of people liked his game, why is that a problem instead of an achievement? He doesn't seem like someone who expected or wanted the fame either, that part was thrust upon him by the gaming media apparently against his will. Everything I've read seems to indicate that he's a pretty reclusive guy, even giving up on making more money because he didn't want any more attention.

As for it being simplistic yeah, i guess that a app it would be simple as hell, but you have to admit the assets look pretty close to super mario sprites, tough they are self made, guessing he took inspiration from it.

    We get it, the audience those games have get some negativity on the internet. Yet you don't need to be like "SEE, I LIKE THESE GAMES THAT EVERYONE HERE LIKES, COULD I FIT IN?", pretty redundant to me. I get that the games your friends play are unoriginal by all means. Besides, if you dislike swag a lot then why not ditch your friends and find some new clique?

    To stay on topic with the entry of "Flappy Bird", why? Just why was this game made in the first place? Better question, why was it #1 on App store? I could name about thousands of other better apps that haven't even came close to about a hundredth of Flappy Bird's success.

    I don't get it, how was it ruining his life? Yeah he probably had quite a bit of internet fame for about a week and there were a lot of rage videos and what not, but does that really "ruin" your "simple life"? The game has only been popular for about a week or so, and already he's running away? I mean it's not like he had the press busting down his door and was getting mugged every time he went to the store right? Maybe he was, and maybe his reasoning is perfectly fine, but to me, it just looks like he's being a soft cock because not everyone likes his mediocre game that probably took him 2 hours to make. If someone can prove me otherwise, please enlighten me.

      Let's say you're making a mobile game. You spent months on this game. You wrote out the story over and over. Half the thing you drew as concept art for it barely got finished before you started from scratch. You spent countless nights coding it and sleepless nights testing it to make sure it works just right. You worked yourself raw for months to make a game.

      Then you hear that the most popular game is something someone made in a weekend with sprites taken from Super Mario Bros.

      That shut will eat you alive. If you're a mobile developer, the only thing you can think is "why fucking bother"? It's because of shit like Flappy Bird (low effort ideas with high returns) that the whole mobile market has gone to ass.

    You know, you can download this game again from the App Store by going to purchased, then tapping "Not on this X" and looking for it there… Just saying.

    Although I don't really see why you would, considering how the guy who made this has another app called Shuriken Block, and it's actually kind of fun when you get the hang of it.

    @Marty McFly
    Are you fucking kidding me?

    This is why mobile gaming market is the most uncreative, unoriginal and cancerous gaming market. One shitty game gets viral and soon after the only number lower than the clones of said shitty game is the number of atoms in the universe. Seriously? Maymay games? Generic "badass" games with rehashed concepts? A fucking "Flappy Tom" minigame on the My Talking Tom app which I use to make funny voices only?

    And I hate it that I live in a country where most of those dumb teeny boppers jack off to these kind of games (Indonesia).

    Activision may be bad with their Call of Duty rehashes and their paid reviews, but when it comes to unoriginality the mobile market makes the Chinese look like Thomas Alva Edison.

      To quote Forbes:
      "This will die down eventually, but all of this goes to show that the current state of the mobile scene is the pursuit of the lowest common denominator as developers chase the easiest, cheapest concepts they can all steal from one another."

      Look on the bright side, the fact that we haven't heard a peep (no pun intended) about anything Flappy Bird related in all that time shows that enough people have gotten smart enough to not gravitate toward cheap, unoriginal garbage like that.

      Seriously, I remember reading articles from around that time saying that the fact that a low-effort game like Flappy Bird with assets taken from the Mario games was able to become so popular, while official Mario games released around the same time (e.g. New Super Mario Bros. U and Super Mario 3D World) struggled to sell well, was proof that Nintendo needed to go third party ASAP and release all their games on mobile in order to stay relevant.

          It's still only a tiny fraction of the total amount of revenue they make each year. About 3% I believe. Even the 8 year old 3DS makes them more money.

    When you consider:
    1) Nintendo's struggles with the Wii U and (to a lesser extent) the 3DS
    2) the Xbox One and games like Sim City trying to push that intrusive always-online model even for single-player
    3) Diablo III's real money auction house setting the precedent for things like microtransactions and loot boxes in AAA retail games
    4) the success of low-effort, plagiarizing games like this convincing publishers and investors that mobile games were where the real money was

    …2013 was honestly a really lousy year for video games.
