Flappy_Bird_logoFlappy Bird is a 2013 mobile game developed in Hanoi by Vietnam-based developer Dong Nguyen, and published by .GEARS Studios, a small, independent game developer also based in Vietnam.

The game became a smash hit off late and reportedly was raking in over $50,000 in ad revenue each day!

Alas the popular game Flappy Bird is no longer available for download & installation via the Google Play & iTunes app stores for the Android & iOS smartphones respectively.

Dong Nguyen was so apparently overwhelmed by the attention his blockbuster app got, that he decided he could take no more of it, and pulled it off the app store on Sunday, 9th Feb 2014.

And that was that as long as most of the world knew. Reporters & bloggers wrote articles about the game’s fame and dissected the game developer’s psyche to understand what had just happened.

As of this writing there are even listings on eBay of smartphone with Flappy Bird installed in them. (Thank you Mashable)
