Poll: Why Was Flappy Bird Pulled From Mobile Stores?

February 12, 2014 - Andrew Eisen

Flappy Bird is a simple game.  Some might even call it boring.

But that certainly didn't stop it from becoming one of the most popular and talked about games on mobile stores for the past week or so.

But, it's gone now.  Yep, creator Dong Nguyen decided to take his money-making ball and go home.

But why?

Well, that's the $50,000-a-day question and that's what this weeks poll is asking.  Was Nguyen overwhelmed by all the attention?  Did he just not want to put up with the bad apples of the internet harassing him?  Was someone threatening legal action over the game's art?  Nguyen said he took the game down because it was too addictive.  Do you believe that?

Vote in the poll and let us know what you think!  And if you think Flappy Bird has gone the way of the dodo for another reason, do let us know in the comments or in an email to SuperPACpodcast@gmail.com.  EZK will discuss this topic and reveal the results of the poll on next week's podcast.
