Flappy Bird has been removed from the app store in February 2014 and at the time, the creator said that its popularity had managed to ruin his simple life. The popular game was originally launched in May 2013, was free to download and players were required to tap the screen in order to keep the bird in flight.

Even though the game features simple graphics, it was a very difficult game to play, as the majority of users could keep the bird in the air for a couple of seconds before it encountered an obstacle and fell to the ground. Flappy Bird went viral following its promotion on social media and more than 22 million subscribers reviewed it on YouTube.

The game was downloaded 50 million times and Nguyen was reportedly generating $50,000 per day from advertising during the height of its popularity.
