Flappy Bird’s funeral

Allie Howard

It’s no secret Flappy Bird was the most addicting and frustrating game that has ever been on the app store. The simplicity of it is genius: you tap the screen to fly a small bird in between pipes. Somehow, the bird always hits the pipe. You could be 10 feet away and “pow”…… “GAME OVER”. For some, this “GAME OVER” may be for good!

On Feb. 9, Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen tweeted, “I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.” Apparently, it wasn’t worth the $50,000 a day he made from revenue to keep it running. The result devastated America, as well as the rest of the world, as Apple demanded Nguyen take down Flappy Bird and dated Flappy’s tombstone. Some people are still desperate to have they game but didn’t download it in time. They need not worry though…. There is a logical solution.

A few who downloaded the game have taken the initiation to ensure people can still get this game. Just go on eBay and you can buy an iPhone with Flappy Bird downloaded on it for the “low, one time offer” of up to 100K (That’s right…. $100,000). Some have sold for $5,000 already, but as of today, no $100,000 purchases have been made. The other option is to download games similar to Flappy Bird like Splashy Fish or Iron Pants. And if you’ve already downloaded it, just keep on killing that bird!
