flappy birdThe creator of Flabby Bird Dong Nguyen has tweeted that he is going to take the game down, which probably means that he will remove it from both Apple Store and Google Play, from tomorrow. He has not disclosed any reasons for this.

Flappy Bird, which is a hit game now and makes $50,000 for its creator in ads, will be removed on midday Sunday because its creator says that he “cannot take this anymore.”

He also said that there were not legal issues, neither his game had been acquired by another company. He also made it clear that he will continue creating games. He tweeted:

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

The game, which has earned notoriety for being too difficult, was created in the middle of 2013 but it has gained sudden popularity in only recent weeks  and is now a top app on both Google Play Store and iOS App Store.

The game is all about players navigating  through pairs of pipes without getting hit by them.

So play Flappy Bird while you can, if it really goes offline tomorrow.

I can call ‘Flappy Bird’ is a success of mine. But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it.
