Flappy Bird game might be back…with a warning
Dong Nguyen is no ordinary developer, he’s the developer that caused the Apple App Store and Google Play Store to go haywire with flappy-named clone apps and games.
How did Dong do it?
Dong Nguyen was the developer behind a very popular arcade game named Flappy Bird. The game was said to be Nguyen a cool stash of $50,000 every single day until the bubble bust.
Nguyen said he was tired of the sudden celebrity status that accompanied the success of his game, worse is that Flappy Bird was too addictive; and this made him pull down the game from the Play Store, App Store and from everywhere he uploaded it.
Now Dong Nguyen is having a rethink. Speaking to Rolling Stone he says he might put up the game for download once again, and this time he’ll obviously put up a warning that the game is addictive inside the app.
Last year it was reported that a boy killed his brother over Flappy Bird highscores while another incident occurred when another boy committed suicide over frustration on playing the game.
After the game was put down, police arrested a Chicago woman for trying to sell her child on CraigList to buy an iPhone 5 with Flappy Bird.
