Flappy Bird Going Down Tomorrow

The developer of the popular mobile game Flappy Bird just declared that he’s taking the game down tomorrow.

Dong Nguyen, an indie game developer based in Hanoi, Vietnam, tweeted, “I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.” He then elaborated, “It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore.”

Don’t know who actually liked that game or what actually so addictive about it!

It looks like he made an exact copy of the Mario pipes which is stupid as they were sure to hit him with a cease and desist or copyright infringement. He probably pulled it before legal action and will remove the copied pieces and sell it to one of the big distributors like Amazon.

He’s knows it’s highly derivative. Take a gander at this game. It’s been around since at least the early 2000’s.
