The creator of the recently-popular mobile game Flappy Bird said via Twitter he will be removing his title from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Dong Nguyen, the indie game developer at .GEARS Studios, said on Twitter: “I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.”

After that message, he also posted: “It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore.”

Flappy Bird has been one of the most popular mobile apps, so much so that it has been downloaded over 50 million times. Nguyen mentioned he’s been earning $50,000 a day since the app got the attention of lots of people. The game features a small bird that must fly without hitting the pipes. Players must tap the screen to avoid the obstacles. The game’s over when a bird hits a pipe. Flappy Bird was first released in May 2013 for iOS, and months later on Android.

Q: Will the game creator remove the game to make changes to it in a future version? Some game elements are very similar to the ones in Super Mario Bros 3 though he said the removal is not due to legal issues.
