Flappy Bird is a mobile game originally released in 2013, and it is strongly inspired by vintage console games. It is a simple game that lets users fly a bird through a series of pipes.
The original Flappy Bird was the brainchild of a Vietnamese programmer named Dong Nguyen. He released the game as a free application for iOS devices, and it went viral in early 2014. However, Nguyen pulled the app shortly after it rose to popularity, citing that the game was too addictive.
Fans of Flappy Bird can access its sequel, Flappy Birds Family on the Amazon Android app store, as of 2015. It is also available for Amazon Fire TV.
