Flappy Bird is a weird hardcore arcade game for Android that’s made in an oversimplified way. Some may call it a runner game due to its endless game play, but we prefer to think of it as of an addictive arcade that gets on your nerves.
The game was released by GEARS Studios and developed by Nguyen Ha Dong. The game was first uploaded to Google Play about a year ago, but it became hugely popular just recently. Its simplicity and hardcore game play attracted millions of users who are doing their best to earn at least five points in this game.
Game playIn this game you will need to control a bird that’s continuously falling down by tapping the screen anywhere you want. However, you won’t just need to make it fly without falling. You’ll also need to fly through Mario-styled pipes with recesses located at every other meter on the level. Do you that’s easy? Just try to fly through at least three pipes without crashing or falling down!
Apart from all of it, the game has 8-bit graphics and… well, there’s really nothing much to it at all, except that it is really annoying and engaging. At first the developer didn’t pin hopes to its success, but later on the game started becoming popular and making at least $50k on built-in ads daily. Try becoming one of the toughest players and show everyone your accuracy and patience.
Key features of Flappy Bird for Android:
- Fancy 8-bit graphics;

ResumeFlappy Bird is a very challenging and oversimplified arcade for people who want to kill some time and nerves. Easy, just try to keep in in the air without breaking your device!
