Flappy Bird was constantly accused of being a "Mario Rip-Off" for containing the series' flagship Green Pipe.

At long last, game developer Dong Nguyen announced on Twitter that he would be deleting Flappy Bird from all IOS and Android Devices, stating that it had "ruined" his simple life.  He mentioned he didn't want press to overate the value of it  and that the decision wasn't sparked by legal issues.
