Not interested in games which try to cash in on the success of others.
This^^

Seems ios is infested with many lazy and dubious devs who rush out more crap to cash in on the latest FotM game.

Last iOS game I bought: 6/1/15

Just so you guys know if you want to protest Flapp-likes you shouldn't comment in the thread. Much like how downloading a game so you can leave a negative review also boosts it up the chart by one download notch, commenting in every Flapp-like thread about how you're not going to download it is what's making these games rocket up our Hot Games list.

But... but... how will the internet know how much I hate things if I don't constantly post about them?!

It's a Jetpack Joyride clone using the "Flappy" name. Not a bad game.

...Which is exactly why Flappy Bird stories are getting so much traffic. The organic traffic they draw from Google is insane by itself, but then add in everyone who insists on dog piling every single one with how much they hate Flappy Bird. It's like a dream come true for page views.

Finally someone took Flappy Bird and add new elements to it, love when this happen. Just like when Time Surfer took Tiny Wings gameplay and add time mechanic to it which make the game much more fun.

This game deserves the attention it's getting.
It's a good game. Too bad the great (original) game that was released at the same time, Blockman - Lite, isn't getting nearly as much. Maybe it does pay to cut corners.

Edit: they changed it's name and the look. Weird. Wonder why? Maybe Apple's crackdown on flap-alikes is actually starting to gain some ground.

Hmmm, yeah I snagged this before the apparent update. The old one looked like a clear rip off of a certain plumber
