Flappy Bird,” currently one of the most downloaded titles on both the Android and App stores, will be taken offline within the next day, the game’s creator, Dong Nguyen, announced on Twitter today.

“I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down,” Nguyen said on Twitter today. “I cannot take this anymore.”

The news comes after various publications claimed that Nguyen is being sued by Nintendo for using what appear to be stolen assets from various Nintendo games, one being “Super Mario Bros. 3.” The game also has drawn criticism for its tediously difficult gameplay and stability issues.

According to a Kotaku report, Nguyen is making over $50,000 in ads a day from the title.
