On Saturday, the game's creator had an announcement to make.

The designer, Nguyen Ha Dong, based in Hanoi, had decided to take down a game he had made in just a few nights. He'd told the media he was making $50,000 a day from advertising. There were rumours the decision was prompted by a warning letter from Nintendo.

The game was already a major internet talking point: it was the most-downloaded mobile game on Apple and Google's online stores.

This is the amount of Google searches you get when a game is downloaded 50 million times.
