I finally downloaded the game from Google Play and spent a few aggravated minutes playing it before bed.
The game itself is really simple, you tap the screen to make the bird fly, each tap flaps the bird's wings, and you gain a little altitude. The objective is to navigate this bird through a series of pipes, trying not to hit anything at all. Sounds easy, but in reality if your bird even breathes on the pipe, you are dead. This game is difficult, but very addictive. You must keep going, trying to achieve that higher score...dreaming about what the end of the game may look like...wanting bragging rights over your friends and family. The reality is that none of that shit is ever going to happen though. This game will torment you. It will haunt your dreams, and make you feel like an idiot. Good luck.
As I mentioned earlier, Flappy Birds was an overnight sensation. One that was monstly born out of hatred. As a result, the creator decided in less than a week that this game was coming down. As of today (2/9/2014) the game can no longer be found online. For more information, please read the USA Today Article below:
Flappy Bird was in my life for a week. It frustrated the fuck out of me. I warned friends not to play it, yet continued to torture myself over and over again. My high score is currently at 12. Based on what I know, this is a decent score, but I have seen others that are still a lot higher than that....the quest continues.
|GAME OVER FOR FLAPPY BIRD|
R.I.P. Flappy Bird
