The popular game for mobile devices was removed from online stores on Sunday by its Vietnamese creator, who said its fame "ruins my simple life". Dong Nguyen, who created the game in just two to three days, was making as much as $50,000 a day from the game's advertising revenue. In several Twitter posts, he said the game's removal was not due to legal issues and that he may make a sequel. Mr Dong, who describes himself as a "passionate indie game maker", also said on the micro-blogging site that he will not sell Flappy Bird but that he will still make games.
