The inventor of the wildly popular video game, Flappy Bird earns a lot (almost $50,000 per day from advertising). But this is so despite his copycat behavior which inspired the game in the first place.

Flappy Bird Earns $50,000 A Day

The Vietnam-born creator of Flappy Bird admits to having stolen a few key elements of his game from Nintendo’s Super Mario Brothers. The game has really benefitted the founder who is making big bucks from the ad revenues for Flappy Bird

It is currently the topmost game on iPhone and Android. And the animated playable deal is so difficult to handle that even making a score of five on it is a backbreaking task. 

A small, cute, yellow bird flies across the screen and you have to click to make it miss the green pipe that emerges out of nowhere. However, getting the little birdie across the screen is a task that the majority cannot accomplish. That is why the game is so addictive. 

While the game is bringing in loads of cash for Dong Nguyen, the maker, the fact is he did a little research before coming up with Flappy Bird. In fact, virtually nothing about the game is original at all. The bird is an amalgam of two of the teensy weensy characters on Super Mario Brothers. 

And the green pipe bears such an uncanny resemblance to the green cylinder on the previously mentioned game by Nintendo that it almost makes one laugh. Yet this proves T.S. Eliot’s maxim that “Bad poets borrow while good poets steal!”
