The Flappy Bird phenomenon took the world by storm in February and was helping generate $50,000 per day for the indie developer, flying past 50 million downloads.
Eventually, the developer removed the game from the App Store, citing how the game was ruining his life (but clearly not his bank account though).
Once Flappy Bird flew the coop, the proliferation of clones soon swarmed the App Store and Google Play, causing both companies to start rejecting new copies.
We know you’re tired of hearing about Flappy Bird, but when it returns, you can bet you’ll still give it a try—right? Right??
