flappybirdI am quite sure if you grew up in the late 1980s and early 1990s, you would have been familiar with your fair share of helicopter games. However, there are times in life when what seems to be new (but actually isn’t) comes again to capture the imagination of the masses, and Flappy Bird happens to be one of those games. Some folks might claim that Flappy Birds are notoriously difficult to play, but this does not mean that it is far from popular. In fact, it has been speculated that the popularity of this title has allowed Flappy Birds to earn up to a whopping $50,000 per day in ad revenue alone, now how about that?

Apart from that, Flappy Birds has remained right at the top of the iTunes and Google Play charts for approximately a month now, where it has seen around 50 million downloads to date. The fact that it has also received favorable reviews on both platforms add to the credibility of this game. The thing about Flappy Birds is, will it become a victim of its own success just like how Rovio finds it difficult to come out of their own Angry Birds shadow? Only time will be able to reveal the future. The fact that Flappy Birds are going to arrive on the Windows Phone platform too, is a testament to its growing popularity.
