A simple mobile tap game, Flappy Bird, is reportedly making its creator make an eye-popping 50,000 dollars every day.
The gaming app has crossed the 50 million downloads benchmark, since its launch last May, and is making its Vietnamese gaming genius, Dong Nguyen, a millionaire-in-the-making.
According to Daily Star, Flappy Bird had been voted as the top app at Apple App and Google Play Store for the past month.
Nguyen said that the reason the game is so popular is that it happens to be something different from mobile games today and is a really good game to compete against each other.
The report said that it is probably one of the most addictive and frustrating games one would have ever seen.
Dong Nguyen, creator of the Flappy Bird app has reportedly tweeted that he is pulling the game today.
The app, deemed as the worst smartphone game ever by some, has been making 50,000 dollars a day in ad revenue.
Nguyen in his tweet yesterday apologized to ‘Flappy Bird’ users for taking down the app and said that he wanted space, adding that the Press has been overrating the success of his games, which he never wanted, Cnet reported.
Meanwhile, following alleged similarities of his game with the others, Nguyen cleared that legal issues weren’t behind his decision.
He also said that the game was not up for sale, though he said that he would still continue making games
