There are many students at Costa Mesa High School who play the game wherever they are, whether it's at nutrition, lunch, or even during class time.
Senior Semeria Anderson says "I think the game is quite simplistic and very clever in the way it manipulates players. It's supposed to be extremely simple, but instead it's quite complicated. When I lose I feel upset, but not crazy angry or anything. I suppose that's just me. "
This poorly pixelated game truly causes some people to become frustrated and stressed out. Many people have said that they hate the game but still continue to play it, just because of how addicting it can be.
Junior Jon Jesudasen says "I like the game, but I hate it more. I don't even like playing it because it's so easy to die and it's dumb, but I think I continue to play just because it so easy to keep going on. The main thing is trying to get bragging rights over your friends saying you have a higher score."
In the old game Candy Crush, after losing five times you had to wait thirty minutes until you could play again. In Flappy Bird, there is no limit to how many times you play a day, which adds to its addictive quality.
Sophomore Steven Vu, with a score of 101 thinks, "The secret to the game is figuring out the game and finding a specific rhythm. It's easier to play with the sound on, it helps me a lot. It's really frustrating at first, but once you get the hang of it you will be on your way towards ultimate glory."
