Why Flappy Bird Game Removed for Android & iPhone [Download links]
I recently read in the NEWS that the popular game Flappy Bird for mobile devices was removed from both Apple's App Store and Google Play by its Vietnamese creator on February 10, 2014 who said its fame "ruins my simple life".
Flappy Bird is a mobile game developed in Hanoi by Vietnam-based developer Dong Nguyen and published by GEARS Studios, the game was released on May 24, 2013.
Flappy Bird game was created and developed by Dong Nguyen in the span of 2-3 days. The character was originally designed in 2012 for a cancelled platform game. Nguyen said that no part of any of his games was designed to be impossible.
On February 8, 2014, Nguyen announced on several Twitter posts that the game was to be removed from both Apple's App Store and Google Play. Writes at 11am UTC: I am sorry Flappy Bird users, 22 hours from now, I will take Flappy Bird down. I cannot take this anymore. He went on to say that taking down the game has "nothing to do with legal issues. On February 9, 2014, almost exactly 22 hours after this announcement, the game was removed from both Apple's App Store and Google Play.

In an interview with Forbes, Dong Nguyen said the game's addiction is the reason of its cancellation. Nguyen stated that "Flappy Bird was designed to play in a few minutes when you are relaxed. But it happened to become an addictive product. I think it has become a problem. To solve that problem, it's best to take down Flappy Bird. It's gone forever." Nguyen also revealed that he lost much sleep after the game's remarkable success which he wished to end. Source: Wikipedia
