HA NOI (VNS) — Flappy Bird, the mobile game that became a global phenomenon last year, is now available on smartwatches running Google's Android Wear operating system.
It is the work of developer Corbin Davenport, and not of its original Vietnamese coder Nguyen Ha Dong. Davenport posted instructions on his site for sideloading Android application packages using the Android debugging bridge onto Android Wear watches.
Launched in May 2013 on Google Play and the App Store, Flappy Bird became the hottest mobile game at the beginning of 2014 due to its simplicity and difficulty levels.
In February 2014, 29-year-old Dong withdrew the game from the online stores, saying that its fame had "ruined my simple life". However, Flappy Bird was still listed among the top 10 trending searches of the year on Google. American entertainment website The Richest recently selected Dong as one of the top 10 Internet millionaires. — VNS
