Game maker, 29-year-old for Dong Nguyen, has pulled the hugely addictive game Flappy Bird from iTunes despite the game app earning $50,000 a day in advertising revenue. Nguyen says the game was originally developed to be played in a few minutes and to relax you by getting your mind off whatever topic you’re focused on.
But, says Nguyen, it has become so addictive, pulling it was the only solution to cure the addition. “Its gone forever,” Nguyen told Forbes.
The game is so addictive apparently, that one eBay ad for an iPhone with Flappy Bird still installed on it is up to $99,000 dollars.
