    Haha, Pokemon went from a Nintendo platform to cell phones and Flappy Bird went from cell phones to NES.

      Well, if you want to get technical Go is not a full fledged Pokemon title. Not even close. It is just as addicting though. As for the reason the dev behind Flappy Bird pulled the game, all I heard was that he felt it defamed him. To give up $50,000 per day though, wanting to avoid lawsuits is a much more believable story.

    Easy to learn, hard to master, and instant gratification. It’s like the dinosaur game in google chrome where you’re a dinosaur and you jump over cacti. You guys would like that game too. It’s all about high score and the game gets progressively harder and harder.

    I’d like too see you guys take on “Flappy Goat”, the sort-of hidden mini game in Goat Simulator. Talk about a challenge… well, just try it. You’ll see.

    This game is basically just a rip-off of an old game I think was called Helicopter.

      Reminds me of underwater Mario levels.

    I heard the guy that made this game got sued by nintendo for using their sprites (pipes from mario) That’s why he has been unheard of since.

    Never heard of this. And it isn’t like Angry Birds because I’ve actually heard of that and it definitely hasn’t gone away since they just made an animated movie this year.

    How and where do you get these home brews?

    So the guy that made it was making a statement about how the market for digital games were really horrible and wanted to make a statement showing how easy it is to make a game a hit. With how lazy he got by making the most simple program with borrowed sprite assets he did a little too well, he was upset that the game became so popular and took it off the digital stores. His justification was he should not be earning so much money for something so bad.

    I was personally upset when I was at E3 around 2013 and met some kid who seemed about as excited to be there as watching paint dry.This guy only got invited to E3 because he made a clone of Flappy Bird.

    That Flappy Bird story would make a good movie
