After a meteoric rise to fame, the addictive game has been pulled from the iOS App Store and Google Play Store by its author.
According to the game's creator, which borrows heavily from the world of Super Mario, he says the removal is not due to legal action. He just hates it. Strange for a game that was making him over $50,000 a day in advertising revenue!
I can call 'Flappy Bird' is a success of mine. But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it.— Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 8, 2014
If you try to download it from the App Store or Google Play, you are met with an image similar to this one below. If you've already downloaded it, it will continue to work as long as you can keep it on your phone.
