    Marketing ploy to get people to rush to download it before its taken down?

    Or cease & desist from Nintendo? I mean, those pipes look exactly like the ones in Mario games. He should have changed the shading or color of them.

    The game was/is an amazing success. There must be a legal reason as to why it’s been taken down..

    Not even just the pipes, Flappy itself looks like a Mario enemy. The whole game feels like some weird spin-off from the Mario universe.

    This guy is either a marketing genius or he’s genuinely afraid of getting sued.

    Very good article about this awkward game. The games is popular because of its concept of score sharing. You want to do better than your friends, and to be able to show them. The share button was very helpful to make the game popular, but the main promotion factor to me was the constant flow of posts about the game on memes sites and image sharing sites.

    Totally. It took over r/gaming (a section of reddit, for you non-redditors) for about 3 days. The buzz has been incredible.
