Flappy Bird's creator has had enough and removing the app

Flappy Birds


Ok, I have to admit, I might be one of the few people that hadn't downloaded Flappy Birds, the free game by developer Dong Nguyen.

The game has an extremely simple premise - tapping on the screen makes a tiny bird flap it's wings and you then have to navigate through a maze of pipes. Sounds simple right? It's not.

If you haven't tried the game yet, best you head to the App Store right now has the developer has had enough of all the attention and is removing the game from The App Store despite earning around $50,000 a day in ad revenue. Dong Nguyen has posted the following on his Twitter account:

I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore.

3:02 AM - 9 Feb 2014"

Oh - the stress of success
