Flappy Bird revenues hit $50,000 per day

Flappy Bird is currently the most popular mobile game today. With more than 50 million downloads, you probably have it in your phone too unless you already deleted it due to frustration.

Flappy Bird was developed by a Vietnamese named Dong Nguyen as a part time project only within three days. Now, his game now generates $50,000 per day in ad revenue. That is like hitting the jackpot or as we Filipinos call it “tubong lugaw.”

Dong Nguyen admits he got lucky with the game. He said in an interview with The Verge that, “Flappy Bird has reached a state where anything added to the game will ruin it somehow, so I’d like to leave it as is.” He also added that a sequel might be coming but no definite date yet.

    I know some additions that would make it better – a decent “Close” button for the app for one. Oh, and better score keeping. I just had my score reset to 0. Bah!

    He is lucky. The game is so buggy, you die even if you don’t hit a tube.

    I guess it became famous not because the game is entertaining but because the game is so frustrating.

    Let the developer enjoy his moment because this game will not last long, just a fad.

    Overrated. Wala naman pumapansin niyan before. Pinasikat lang. Trend sh!t.

    So, in the future pag ang trending ay nakahubad ka sa kalye, malamang huhubad ang madami. Dami talagang uto-uto.

    Nice game,frustrates the bejeezus out of you.. but gets old pretty fast, ala ‘Super Hexagon’.

  6. Red says:

    Naalala ko yung larong Badland, parang mini game long tong Flappy Bird kung ikukumpara mo.

  7. Kami says:

    on a different note, hindi po ba subject sa copyright yung design ng mga tubes? maxado xang mala-nintendo?

    pero for real, ang hirap, maka 100 points, pero once nakuha mo na yung technique. dirediretso na.

    Sad lang, dami nang hack. sabagay, frustrating talaga xa.

    sana soon, meron narin PINOY APP na magiging super hit.

  8. PURO na kayo BIRDS Yugatech

    I can see “Laro pa” has been omitted from the title. Filipino crab mentality tsk tsk tsk
