Flappy Bird has been one of the most popular games we've seen so far for both iOS and Android platforms. However apart from being the most popular, it has also been the one with the shortest life span. As we all know, the game was removed days after its release from various app stores after its launch. Dong Nguyen, the game's developer cited the games very popularity being the reason for its demise. According to him, he removed the game from stores because he felt that it became too popular and users were becoming too addicted to it. In addition, Nguyen also began receiving hate mail from those unfortunate enough to find the game too difficult for their fragile game-playing abilities. Go figure.
