Dong Nguyen might have pulled the plug on Flappy Bird but the craze isn’t cooling down anytime soon. As the app is no longer available to download on Google Play & Appstore, some enterprising sellers have started offering Flappy Bird pre-installed devices for a premium.
One fine example is an iPhone 5S which is listed for US$1,499 on ebay which is about RM4,984! A 16GB iPhone 5S is currently priced at RM2,399, which makes the “pre-installed” game a RM2,584 value. It’s not just iPhones as there’s listing for Flappy Bird pre-installed iPads, Galaxy S4, iPod Touches and HTC One.
If you’re slow to the Flappy Bird bandwagon, a cheaper alternative for Android users is to search for the Flappy Bird APK file that you can installed manually. Alternatively, you can play Squishy Bird.
