You can stop crying now.

This past weekend the Flappy Bird had its wings clipped.

Last Saturday the game’s creator, Dong Nguyen, tweeted that he would be taking the game down from both the App Store and the Google Play store.

Flappy Bird was the mobile game that was all the rage , pun intended. According to Buzzfeed, it was the number one download in the App Store for almost a month. And it’s quite easy to see why.

The game puts you in control of a little bird who can’t fly on his own. Your job was to keep him afloat by repeatedly tapping the screen and help him get through the pipes as far as you can.

But who could’ve guessed that such as simple game could be so hard? Check out some these reviews from the App Store:

Some people just said “No”.

Others got religious about it.

Some people even went as far as posting parody videos on how to “truly” beat the game.

Although Flappy Bird is officially off the market, other developers are trying to continue the trend with titles such as Fly Birdie- Flappy Bird Flyer and Clumsy Bird.

It is still unclear as to why Nguyen has taken the game down.
