Another bird is holding the attention of millions of mobile gamers worldwide. The absurdly difficult and addictive Flappy Bird has inspired hysterical reviews and rants on the internet as it fluttered to the top of the charts on Google Play as well as the Apple iTunes.
The concept is simple: you tap the screen of your mobile device anywhere to make the highly pixelated bird move up. This is the only control you have over the bird as you try to navigate it through gaps between the green pipes on the way. Hit any pipe and you’re out. Seems simple, doesn’t it?
However, you will find that 50 million frustrated downloaders disagree with you. Inspired by the classic video game Super Mario Bros, there is no reason for Flappy bird to have become as big a sensation as it has. This delightful yet spirit-crushing game has inspired the hate of millions across the globe who have fallen to the mighty power of the bird. The defining feature of the game is that despite its simple concept, it is nearly impossible to score in. It is not uncommon to find users in internet forums rejoicing about achieving a high score of 6.
This 8-bit game, inferior to most other games in terms of graphics or design, has followed the likes of Angry Birds, Candy Crush or Paper Toss and achieved the status of a viral hit. This rise to fame is helped along by reviewers who write about the Curse of the Bird and warn others not to follow them down the dark hole of Flappy Bird. Interestingly, despite their apparent irritation, users still give the game five stars and continue their quest to keep the bird alive. Now you can play this frustrating game online and waste your time with our website.
