Flappy Bird was one of the hardest game ever released, it got instant fame for being incredibly difficult and it made the developer of the game, Dong Nguyen. The game was so successful in fact that some argued it was too difficult and Nguyen was one of them, the Vietnamese developer decided that the game had turned into something it should not have becoming where people spent countless hours trying to beat other players high scores, Matthew F is believed to have the record at 246 points, and the maximum score ever achieved is believed to be 999. Soon after the game was released it was removed at the direct request of Dong Nguyen as he thought the game was taking up too much of people's lives. Quite ironic don't you think? that a game developer would remove his game for being too successful, but there had been reports of fights breaking out over the game. But that was not the only reason he sought to remove the game, it seems Nguyen did not like the limelight and wanted to return to his relatively modest life without anybody knowing who he is. Nguyen had other very popular games in both the app and play store those games including Swing Copters and Ninja Spinki Challenges however these are now where near the levels that Flappy bird was when it comes to popularity but a small price to pay in order to stay anonymous I suppose.
This game launched not too long ago and with it a host of controversy fappy bird was making its creator about 50 thousand U.S a day ! but the success eventually got to the creator and it was taken off the store.
