Is This Why Flappy Bird Creator Took Down The App? Before Nintendo Finds Out?

February 17, 2014 by Galvin Tan in Entertainment, Featured, Technology with 0 Comments


Flappy Bird is dead and gone. But the question of why the app is gone so quickly is still much of a question everyone is asking about, including myself. I am one of them who got to download the app before if was taken down but I was never good with that game. My personal best is still below 2-digits but I’ve seen some friends almost reaching 3-digits score.

I recently came across a video on YouTube that could perhaps shed some light on why the game is pulled off so quickly. The YouTube video which shows a player reaching Level 999 battling against an iconic game character, Mario from Mario Bros.

Could this be the reason why the creator Dong Nguyen decided to pull off the game before Nintendo finds out? That he used Nintendo graphics and characters for his own personal gain? It only make sense because Nguyen is easily making USD50K / day with Flappy Bird but the potential legal suit from Nintendo could take away every from him including the money that he have already pocketed.

But of course, this is just my personal opinion and speculation. Whether it is the reason to it or not, we will never know. Or unless, this video is wonderfully doctored by the guys at pipocaVFX.
