The recognition by Business Insider comes after the game reached the level of most downloaded app on both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for Android in March.
Nguyen Ha Dong faced scrutiny after pulling the game off of these stores following heavy media coverage. The list, published on Mar. 22, also includes big names in technology like Foursquare founder and CEO Dennis Crowley, and the first Pac-Man for iPhone and mobile FarmVille creator, Amanda Wixted.
Following the list’s release, Nguyen Ha Dong announced his plan to resurrect the game for both Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android platforms, but with important changes and updates.
