Flappy Bird was created by Dong Nguyen as a simple yet impossibly difficult endless runner game for the iPhone. With graphics straight out of Super Mario Brothers and gameplay that involves a single, incredibly frustrating tap mechanic, Flappy Bird rose to the very top of the App Store charts before the developer removed it, citing concerns over its addictive nature, and the negative attention he was getting online.
Free to download and ad supported, while Flappy Wing is no longer available it can still be re-downloaded by those who obtained it originally.

Flappy Bird is the hottest game on the App Store — at least for the moment — and topmost on every gamer's mind is how to get a higher score than their friends... and without smashing their phone to pieces in the process. A fantastically terrible game, its design is derivative, its mechanics maddening, and its popularity no doubt the result of incredible rage-of-mouth marketing. Yet despite all of that (or maybe because of it)... Can't. Stop. Playing. So how can you get better at Flappy Bird faster? For some games it's simply a matter of finding the right tips, hints, and cheats. Flappy Bird, however, is so simple, that there are few to no ways to hack the system. But that doesn't mean you can't hack yourself...

Now that the absolutely insane Flappy Bird title is gone from the App Store, you may be looking for something to cleanse your gaming palate. For all of its addictiveness (which is the very reason the developer removed it), Flappy Bird presented a ton of frustration, and was ultimately pretty simplistic. So here are some games to help you get away from birds, endless runners, 8-bit graphics, and one-touch controls.

Flappy Bird seems to have come out of nowhere to become the number one game on the App Store. With graphics that look straight out of Super Nintendo and gameplay that's as simple as it is insanely difficult, it's all anyone seems to be talking about right now, especially if they can get anything over a single-digit high score. Here's how it works — tap to flap and try to avoid the pipes. Touch a pipe and it's game over. No doubt the simplicity and difficulty is what's made Flappy Bird a phenomenon. Nothing spreads by word of mouth faster than the things we love to hate (or hate to love?) I currently max out at 3 (yes, 3!) but I've seen people get double, even triple digit scores. If you've tried Flappy Bird let me know — where does it rate on your love to hate scale? And, most importantly — what's your high score?

Flappy Bird may have been taken away from us, but it looks like it's coming back. Eventually. The developer, Dong Nguyen, famously pulled the insanely popular game from both the App Store and Google Play. But according to a recent tweet, the bird will fly again.
