Flappy Bird Online — Deleted Game Lives On Forever
Though Flappy Bird is no longer available for purchase on mobile devices, there is an online version of the game that’s free to play for anyone who missed out on their chance to download it.
Several websites are hosting a flash version of Flappy Bird, which features the same graphics, sounds — and, of course, frustrating gameplay — as the original.
Hey, maybe they should call it Flashy Bird, eh? … No? OK, sorry about that.
Flappy Bird Creator Falls Prey To Death Hoax
Not only is Flappy Bird still alive and well, but so is Dong, despite what a sick online hoax would have you believe. Shortly after the game was deleted, a false news report began circulating Twitter, claiming that Dong had committed suicide.
Perhaps Dong’s recent string of bizarre tweets — including one which stated he “cannot take this anymore” — inspired the horrific hoax, but there’s really no excuse for such a sick prank.
