HANOI, Vietnam, May 15 (UPI) -- Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen announced the addictive game app will return to app stores in August.

The graphically simple -- yet extraordinarily difficult -- game became a hit in January, topping the iTunes Top Charts and keeping gamers awake all night trying desperately not to run into the game's myriad pipes.

Nguyen said he shut down the game in February because it ruined his life.

He said the game was too addictive and he was kept awake at night out of guilt.

He announced the game would return back in March and now he finally has a rough release date.

The new version of the game comes with some changes, though, including a multi-player function.
