Game over for Flappy Bird

The Philippine Star

HANOI, Vietnam — The creator of hit mobile game Flappy Bird has removed it from the App Store and Google Play saying it had ruined his life.

The game which was uploaded in 2013 but only surged to the top in downloads earlier this year was removed early Monday.

Creator Nguyen Ha Dong, 29, from Hanoi, wrote on Twitter on Saturday that the Internet sensation caused by the game "ruins my simple life" and he now hated it.

Dong's move comes amid claims he was using tricks to artificially increase downloads.

Vietnamese media reported that the game made $50,000 a day in advertising revenue.
