Flappy Bird, for those who don't much follow the mobile gaming scene, is the latest craze in mobile gaming. The overnight hit was reportedly bringing in over $50,000 a day in ad revenue for its creator, Dong Nguyen, and had been downloaded over 50 million times.

The game has, however, just been removed from the Google and Apple mobile storefronts, but apparently not for legal reasons, despite Flappy Bird drawing criticism for its similarity to a certain Nintendo IP.

It seems Nguyen has simply had enough of the criticism and has decided to chuck it all in - he claims Flappy Bird's success has ruined his simple life and that he now hates his creation.
