The Flappy Bird, one of the most addictive games today has been pulled out in Google Play and App Store by the developer. Despite of reportedly generating more than 50 thousand dollars per day in add revenue, the Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen said sorry to Flappy Birds users.
On his Twitter account Nguyen tweeted “I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore,” Nguyen appears to have grown weary of Flappy Bird’s success stating: “Press people are overrating the success of my games. It is something I never want. Please give me peace.”
The 8-bit inspired game which requires the player to navigate the series of gaps by tapping the screen to flap the bird’s wings was on the top chart in Play and App Store when it was removed. Questions raised about the similarities of Flappy Bird to Mario but the developer insisted that the removal of the game is not based on legal pressures.
“It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore,” Nguyen stated via his official Twitter feed.
