After a meteoric rise to fame, the addictive game has been pulled from the iOS App Store and Google Play Store by its author.
According to the game's creator, which borrows heavily from the world of Super Mario, he says the removal is not due to legal action. He just hates it. Strange for a game that was making him over $50,000 a day in advertising revenue!
