Flappy Bird, What's the Deal?

Looking for a new game to keep you preoccupied on your down time? The top free app in the Apple App Store and Google Play, this week is a game that's getting many hooked. A game about a bird doesn't sound shocking, but once you download it and give it a try, you start to wonder why you ever did. This game is nothing similar to that of Angry Birds; it makes you turn into an angry bird. 

With a layout familiar to most, Super Mario pipes, this game will make you want to try it out until you can get the hang of it. Personally, I think it's one of the hardest games ever made. The goal of the game is to keep the bird flying through the pipes without hitting them. As simple as it seems, this game will actually make you want to throw your phone and yell across the room. How people get past a score of 25, I have no idea. Several Vines and memes are now out there to express the frustration one gets from playing the game. Sound like something you might be interested in? Take a deep breath, give it a try, and be careful not to throw your phone across the room.
