, one of the App Store's most surprising success stories to date, has been removed from all the mobile stores, as the creator says that he "cannot take this anymore."
The game rocketed to the top of the App Store and Google Play free download charts last month, and many press members and developers spent many hours attempting to explain the phenomenon.
But creator Dong Nguyen didn't appear to be enjoying the wide-scale attention so much, with various tweets
suggesting that it was all perhaps a bit too full-on for him to handle.
Now the developers has pulled the game from both the App Store and Google Play entirely, stating
, "It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore."
He added, "I also don't sell Flappy Bird
, please don't ask. And I still make games."
