Despite bids flying north of $90,000, two eBay listings for an iPhone with the now extinct Flappy Bird mobile game still installed have gone missing from auction website eBay, according to a report today from GameSpot.

According to the report, two different eBay auctions for iPhones with Flappy Bird still installed on it garnered bids soaring above $90,000 after the game’s creator Dong Nguyen removed the notoriously difficult and addicting game from mobile marketplaces like the Apple App Store and the Google Play store for Android.

However, as of publication the listings, one receiving 74 bids reaching $99,900 for an iPhone 5S with the game on it and another with 65 bids topping out at $90,200, have been removed.

Nguyen took to Twitter to make the announcement that he’d be pulling Flappy Bird from online marketplaces, saying simply that he “cannot take this anymore.”

“I can call Flappy Bird is a success of mine. But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it,” Nguyen said.

Last week, Nguyen revealed that the free game had garnered average daily revenue of $50,000 from advertisements.
