By Christina Warren It was a simple game, but frustrating and endless. Sharing many similarities with the famous Helicopter Game — only with Super Nintendo-style graphics — it's safe to say Flappy Bird took over the web.
The game was designed and built by Dong Nguyena developer who lives in Vietnam. Nguyen previously made a number of iOS and flash games for his mobile Flappy bird. That's partially because Nguyen, overwhelmed by the popularity of the game, has declined press requests for interviews. Shortly after we posted this story, Forbes tracked down Nguyen in Hanoi, where he revealed that Flappy Bird is "gone forever' because, essentially, it was Flappy bird.
Much of the data surrounding Flappy Bird and its viral success came courtesy of Zach Williams, a developer who analyzed the numbers behind the game.
Williams scraped all of the written app reviews from Flappy Bird in iTunes before the game was removed; this yielded a database of more than 68, written reviews, and he was kind enough to share a CSV file of that data with Mashable. Using it, we were able to look for trends around when the app started to gain traction, its ratings and the general user sentiment surrounding it.
The game's sheer success has led some critics to accuse Nguyen of using shady practices — including buying traffic or paying for fake reviews — in order to help Flappy Bird ascend the app charts. After looking at the data that corresponds to when Flappy Bird started to build word-of-mouth buzz, however, we can't find any signs of impropriety, or manipulation of reviews or ratings.
The fact that Flappy Bird wasn't a scam — but a naturally occurring spectacle that came out of nowhere — only makes its triumph that much more incredible and its removal from the App Store that much more bittersweet.
What follows is a strange story about a simple game called Flappy Bird and the roller-coaster ride that followed. At the time, Nguyen shared an image of a game he was working on via Twitter: Nothing more about the game was mentioned.
Later, Nguyen would say that the character originated from a game he started working on, but scrapped. Nguyen said he managed to build Flap Flap in just two days.
Managed to submit Flap Flap for approval in 2 days.
As it turns out, there was already another app with that name in the App Store. Nguyen renamed the game Flappy Bird. Nguyen tweeted his high score from the game's share screen. Note that the hashtag is flapflap — the name of the original game.
