Not available.

It was the top app in the apple app store.

It was again where you navigated and it was similar to super mario brothers.

It was a simple game and very easy graphics.

It was ridiculously hard.

It was one of those games that people were addicted to the suddenly took off this year.

It has been around since 2013. the guy said he was making $350,000 per way.

Aren't games supposed to be hard?

It's one of those games where it is really hard.

You can buy your way through on these free games.

It's like life.

Exactly, you could not.

You make your way through this game and there was no way to buy currency or by any cheats to help you through the game.

In addition to the game being too hard, he was criticized for copying other game makers?

There were some rumors that nintendo is planning to sue them.

Nintendo denied that.

We don't think that's true as far as we know.

It's about designing games.

Activision can spend $100 million developing game over 2.5 years and it can be ready and this thing or this thing it or other things it's about gameplay.

This game is a copy of a nintendo game from 15 years ago.

The sky developed this game in the course of a couple of hours.

Nintendo with five thousand employees is struggling to come up with games that appeal to people.

Why not just sell it to zynga or some other company?

Why take it off the app store?

You can easily copy this and there are already seven copies on it online.

This guy was just pressured by it.

He felt with all the tweets and you tube postings, there were even death threats and whether they were fun or not because the game was so hard and they were blaming him.

Maybe there were other birds giving him death threats.

Exactly.

We will see if it comes back to life.

Thank you so much.
