About Flappy Bird

How to Play

Flappy Bird's gameplay is best described as simple, addictive, yet mildly infuriating. Tap carefully to raise the bird up and navigate through the gaps in the green pipes without crashing. When the inevitable crash occurs, you'll earn a score that you can try and outdo on your next run. It's addictive!

Play it Only on the Web

Flappy Bird was originally created as a mobile game, but was later removed from the app stores. In an interview with Forbes, Dong Nguyen, the developer of Flappy Bird, cited the game's addictive nature as the reason for its removal from the stores.

Despite this fact, you can still play the original Flappy Bird for free in your web browser, using a desktop or mobile device!

The Legacy of Flappy Bird

Flappy Bird was part of an early revolution in hypercasual mobile games. Plenty of simple one-button and side-scrolling games have been released since its inception. The game spawned numerous remakes, clones, and parody games that took the concept to new levels.

You can find games that utilize this concept of keeping up an object or animal everywhere on CrazyGames. Popular games like Tap Tap Shots and Square Bird. However, even before Flappy Bird, there were similar classic games like Copter that people could play for free on the web.
