    Could be just me, but I didn't think it was addicting at all. Tried it for 3 mins or so and never again. High level 2!!! ya!

    How do you make it non-addictive?.. Does it come with a coupon for a rehab center?

    I would be heartbroken as well, but from seeing how many *****s take a game so dumb so seriously.

    Maybe the game could do well in proper rehab centres to help take the patients mind off their addiction/s and replace it with another.

    Negligent mother: Go to your room, Jimmy! You're distracting me!
    Nguyen: ....

    Unemployed dude: F*** the quarterly report! I can't get past this damned pipe!
    Nguyen: ....

    Spoiled child: THIS IS TOO HARD!!!!! *smashes phone*
    Nguyen: ...I can't take this anymore! People have such horrible priorities!!! *pulls Flappy Bird*

    App-store: *shows ridiculous profit*
    Nguyen: ...I must be tougher than I thought. *re-launches Flappy Bird*

    Have I represented the narrative correctly, so far?
