So what is this obsession going around the internet over Flappy bird? Though we’re pretty sure everyone by now must have heard about this new phenomenon which has taken everyone by interest but for those who still don’t know what we are talking about here, Flappy Bird is a game which has recently taken over the interests of many Android and Apply smartphone users. In both the Android Play Store and the Apple App Store, this game which was developed back in 2013 has taken a toll by getting a response of millions of downloads. A Windows Phone port was also promised by the game developer, Dong Nguyen but unfortunately this might not come.
A rather unusual and surprising thing happened right in the middle of the game climbing its success ladder. The game has been removed by the developer from all the app stores and no one could figure out exactly why this happened. But we do know one thing for sure that this removal of the game has nothing to do the copyright infringement as Nitendo has clearly mentioned that it had no involvement whatsoever in the removal.
The truth might leave some into fits while others might think it is a very lame excuse to make. The game developer has admitted that he removed the game because it was causing too much trouble to people since the losing was becoming annoying and unbearable for some and it was in truth a very addictive game.
