After flying too close to the sun, Flappy Bird has been taken off App stores

After destroying all happiness and love in the world, the Flappy Bird game has officially been taken down by App stores found on all devices. Flappy Bird had found a huge spike in popularity in the last month or so and creator Dong Nguyen apparently couldn’t take the success of his little creation any longer. “I can call Flappy Bird is a success of mine,” he tweeted, “But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it.” This was all said before he took the sword forged from Gods to kill the monster that has reigned terror on households everywhere, eradicating what caused many people to shout “Fuck!” and “I hate this game” and “I hate my children.”

But more realistically, Flappy Bird was likely taken down due to the game being so popular and therefore possibly gaining the attention of Nintendo. As the game clearly “borrows” some image sprites from 1990′s Super Mario World, a lawsuit is what Nguyen was probably avoiding. Either way, no longer will Flappy Bird be hurting anyone any longer now that it’s flown too close to the sun. However if you downloaded the game before its destruction then you’re absolutely still able to hate your life.
