PocketGamer.biz Week That Was: Farewell Flappy Bird, Supercell's $892 million sales, and Molyneux says F2P is a sledgehammer

Alas, poor Flappy Bird- we hardly knew ye.

After nearly upending everything we thought we knew about discovery and how the App Store worked, you strut and fret your hour upon the stage and then went silent.

While many are now looking for ways to recapture your sound and fury, others are convinced that you ultimately signified nothing.

In either case, you certainly made the beginning of 2014 more interesting with your unexpected presence and we'll have clones of you to remember you by for months to come.

With the eulogy complete, it's time to take a look back at the PocketGamer.biz week that was.
