Aside from the hi score screen, it bares basically no resemblance to flappy bird.
It is a tried and true formula. Vertical traffic avoidance racer. Lots of these on the AppStore. A lot are crap. A lot have brutal pop up adverts and adverts during gameplay. This one doesn't.
It's brutal right off the go. The difficulty is ramped up right from the start. One of the best I've played, in this style of game.
I get that having flappy as a keyword would help with AppStore searches. On TA I think it might be hurting a game that deserves more attention than it's gotten.
Thank you Nabunaga, I am really glad you like the game.

I think I used the Flappy Bird reference all wrong or it get misunderstood, I should have expressed myself better.

When I wrote:
"The bird just got hit by a car - Move over Flappy Bird here comes Smacky Cars!"
I didn't mean that Smacky Cars is like Flappy Bird, just that the game is simple, hard, addicting (hopefully!), fast to learn and fun.

This one I assume is bad because it give a wrong idea:
"Like Flappy Bird, But For Cars!"
I had the same idea as above when writing this.

For the next update I will remove the Flappy Bird reference.

This is as addicting as flappy bird and maybe finer than it and it is not as frustrating! It's a win win :-)
