From eGamer, "Lately I’ve been playing Flappy Bird on my Android device to great distaste and infuriation. Challenging casual games tend to infuriate me, but Flappy Bird by .GEARS Studio (otherwise known as Dong Nguyen) does this by its very design. My experience with the game has led me down a Flappy path of addiction as I constantly attempt to best my score. The game has one simple mechanic you’re a stupid looking bird with flight-dysfunction that needs to progress through a series of Super Mario style pipes without hitting them. Flappy Bird requires the player to tap the screen in a rhythmic fashion to keep Flappy flying, and not bumping into Mario pipes or plummeting to the ground unceremoniously".
