When Flappy Bird released, many people could see the similarities the art style hard to Super Mario World on the SNES, the Flappy Bird itself was clearly a Cheep Cheep from the Mario franchise without the fin on his head, the tail and the white cloud like wings.
Flappy Bird was recently taken down by Apple, when this happened people instantly began to blame that Nintendo was behind it all by complaining about copyright infringement due to how the graphics of the game look similar to Super Mario and the pipes looking like warp pipes.
The truth is that Nintendo had nothing to do with Flappy Bird being taken down at all, it’s sad to see that people would jump to the conclusion that Nintendo had anything to do with it; I’ve seen people writing negative comments about Nintendo on other sites because of this and it’s not right.
Before jumping to a conclusion it’s best to have knowledge of what’s going on because you want to make sure you’re right. Flappy Bird easily became #1 in the App Store; somehow it was able to gather a huge audience out of nowhere. Flappy Bird is now not amongst us anymore, it’s in a better place.
