Late last year Dong Ngyugen, developer of Flappy Bird pulled the game and seemed to vanish from the public spotlight. Recently however, people can get a second chance to play the infamously frustrating game on Amazon Fire TV with the updated Flappy Bird Family.


Ngyugen admitted in the past how uncomfortable he felt with the ‘addiction’ he was seeing by people playing the game, leading to him ultimately pull the game from the app store and playstore. This may have influenced his decision to allow the game to be home only, cutting time people could be exposed to it.

The games description reads: Flappy Birds now are on Amazon Fore TV with incredible new features Person vs Person mode, more obstacles, more fun and still very hard. Enjoy playing the game at home (not breaking your Tv) with your friends and family.
