Just yesterday, I opened a list of blogs I bookmarked just to keep in touch with the news around town and one seemed to be recurrent – “Developer Of Flappy Bird Wants To Take It Down.”
I traded my Android OS mobile nearly four months ago, so I had no access to the Flappy Bird app, but I’ve seen and read about it more on my Twitter Timeline, and most of the things I read were kind of hateful comments so I took my time yesterday to research deep into the game.
First thing that came to my mind was, if this game occupies the first position in the app store, then where are the likes of the equally addictive Temple Run? Those games also show great potential, and with what I saw (since I played the latter when I still had my ‘droid), it seemed to be better than the Flappy Bird. The success then seemed a myth to me.
Some of the reasons I think the above-mentioned game is better and so makes the success more shocking are…
On and on goes the reasons, and I think the mythically huge success is what overwhelmed the developer when he came to the decision to take it down. But then, another series of thoughts arose. Why would you take down an avenue from which you generate about $50,000 dollars a day? My brain sprung into action, I deliberated upon it, and the reasons I could arrive at can be summarized as follows
Those were the things I thought of, and I hope they get verified in the nearest future, as I’m still in some kind of debate with my head over here, as to which point seems more viable
I’m not being biased or prejudiced. They’re just my thoughts..
