Houlihan's, an American restaurant and bar with 82 locations nationwide, announced today they will give away a free Jumbo Stuffed 'Shroom appetizer to all Americans on March 24 if game developer Dong Nguyen returns the Flappy Bird app to the iOS and Android app stores by March 10.

On Monday, Nguyen stated in an exclusive interview with Forbes that he chose to take down the Flappy Bird app because "…it happened to become an addictive product." Upon hearing this statement, the Houlihan's brand both sympathized with the plight of the game developer and understood they had an important role to play in helping bring the game back to its rightful place on app stores.

"We understand the responsibility that comes with offering addictive apps, at Houlihan's we offer lots of them," said Jen Gulvik, senior VP marketing and creative director, Houlihan's Restaurants, Inc. "We want Mr. Nguyen to know he's not alone. The folks at Houlihan's are behind you all the way and ready to celebrate your brave decision to bring back Flappy Bird by offering free Houlihan's apps at our restaurants. With your game and our delicious food, together we can make America a happier place."

Fans of world's once most popular free app can plead for the return of Flappy Bird by signing a petition available at houlihans.com/WeHaveAddictiveApps.
