The Rise and Fall of Flappy Bird
Play • 35 min
Dong Nguyen released Flappy Bird for the iPhone in May 2013, and a few months later, it became the #1 mobile game across the world. However, Nguyen was soon faced with never-ending harassment over the game's difficulty and addictive qualities, while hundreds of Flappy Bird clones flooded Apple and Google's app stores. Hosted by Corbin Davenport, guest starring Jacob Westall.
