     As technology prospers, the games and new apps that come out really stir attention. Flappy Bird has shut down and all the knock-offs and Flappy Bird knock-offs have begun to be released in abundance.

    “ I’ve played the knockoffs and honestly they don’t stand a chance against Flappy Bird,” freshman Fiza Tariq said.

    Overwhelmed with all the comments 29 year old developer of Flappy Bird Dong Nguyen has shut down the app and apparently has disappointed many users. Flying Cyrus, City Bird, Splashy Fish and many more have all tried to become the new Flappy Bird.

    “ I was really surprised to hear that this game that just got so popular has out of no where shut down,” sophomore Brandon Shi said.

    Others might have been sad but then there were those who were relieved from the game. Procrastinating and trying to pass valuable time has made many struggle.

    “ I used to barely procrastinate, flappy bird made it worse,” freshman Kaitlyn Sass said.

    Apparently now that the game has been deleted and the phones that still have the app on their phone is worth more than a brand new iPhone. This has stirred the attention of many students and this new event has made iPhones even more than they are worth.

“This game makes me so mad,” sophomore Khaterah Sayed said. Playing flappy bird trying to pass time sure looks like its working out for her. “ It passes time and it gets really addicting can’t really stop playing.”
