Sometimes industry fans can be pretty brutal, especially when they feel as if a developer is stealing others work. Case in point, we’ve seen a backlash against Flappy Bird, a mobile title from developer Dong Nguyen. Many cited the glaring similarities to Super Mario Bros. resources used in Flappy Bird.

Well congratulations, internet – you got what you wanted. This morning Nguyen tweeted that he will be removing the title within the next day or so, citing he simply “…can’t take it anymore.”
