Just when things are heating up, Flappy Bird is said to be pulled down in less than 24 hours from Google Play & iOS Appstore. Its creator Dong Nguyen had tweeted his decision while adding that he couldn’t take this anymore. It is unclear why exactly he is pulling the plug but he clarified on Twitter that it wasn’t related to legal issues. He has also added that Flappy Bird is not for sale and he will still be continuing to develop mobile games.
It was reported that Flappy Bird is raking in a handsome US$50,000 per day in mobile ad revenue, which is pretty good income for the game developer. To turn down a steady revenue stream must be pretty drastic for Dong Nguyen. He had tweeted yesterday while Flappy Bird can be considered a success, it also had ruined his simple life.
