If you currently don't know Flappy Bird, then you really are too old-fashioned! The game, came from a Vietnam independent game studio dotGears, has defeated a lot hot game, like Clash of  Clans, Candy Crush and so on, and caught the top of App Store and Google Play charts. How did it get that way?

Actually, the game is just an ordinary casual pixels game. It doesn't have complex operations, delicate graphics and abundant story. You control the bird through the obstacles by just touching the screen again and again. But this seemingly simple game has incredible difficulty. Any mistake will make you fail. And you can only start over the game after fail. What exactly is the attraction of the game?

"The reason Flappy Bird is so popular is that it happens to be something different from mobile games today and is a really good game to compete against each other," the game developer Nguyen said in an interview with The Verge "People in the same classroom can play and compete easily because [Flappy Bird] is simple to learn, but you need skill to get a high score."

But, there is also another voice about the game's place. Carter Thomas who is from Bluecloud Solutions thought the game's achievement is too strange. He considered dotGears should use bots to steal the ranking. Of course this is just a guess.

From my game experience, I think the critical reason why Flappy Bird got such huge downloads is its fairness. Nowadays, the mobile game companies become more and more utilitarian. Their primary purpose is looking for money. Because of that, games lost fairness. And players also lost pure game playing fun. So, the fair game like Flappy Bird is naturally cause players' attention. Certainly, the incredible difficulty is also the reason for the success of the game. 

By the way, before today, my highest score is 10, what about you?
