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.
