I’ve been using an iPhone for the last four years. Thoughts of switching to Android have kept coming off and on, but I decided against it.

Somewhere in 2013, an annoyingly addictive game Flappy Bird was first released. But it was only a year later when it suddenly took the world by storm. The 2D side scrolling bird game was even pulled from the app stores, as the developer received life threats. But one mystery remained. Does it ever end or the fat lipped bird goes on flying forever? Since then, there have been hundreds of videos uploaded to YouTube on how you encounter an old-school Mario character when you reach level 999. Even big publications had picked the story back then. Some said that it’s a cleverly faked video, but had no proof. So, I decided to dig into game to find out the truth whether flappy bird ends.
