A Game Changing Concept
Angry Birds is well known to be the ultimate game changer. When the game was launched, it created a huge stir among gamers with millions of people getting hooked on to its addictive gameplay. The design of the game is brilliant and the concept of using birds with special powers for destroying pigs and castles was novel and arresting. Even today, there are several new versions of the game being launched with different themes. You can pick the one that interests you. However, many of the games are also paid ones, while some of them are free.
Highly Addictive and Frustrating
As for Flappy Bird, the game was also acclaimed as being a very addictive one. It gained a lot of popularity during the early part of the year. Later, it came under a lot of controversy and was taken off the play stores. The game is well known for being very difficult and frustrating, though it seems simple to play. The game only makes use of 2D graphics and it is not as appealing as the graphics of Angry Birds. Many gamers started losing sleep over the game and it was officially removed in February 2014. It is rumored that the game is going to be re-launched in a new format.
Professional vs. Hobbyist

Angry Birds has a superb interface with many birds having different characters and abilities. The player has to select birds and use them for destroying pigs and objects at a distance.
Angry Birds is a game that offers greater variety. There are various types of birds and each level offers something new. The levels are difficult to clear but not impossible, whereas Flappy Bird levels are really frustrating even for an expert player.
