Really like this
Not just another flap-alike
This adds new elements, and makes it just different enough to really enjoy

Varied obstacles
Missions
Collection of hearts/power-ups
Upgrades (which are all bought with collected hearts)

Gamecenter
No ads. No IAPs.

Nice game, which has more in common with a great runner than flappy bird.

That avatar strongly reminds me of Mario's underwater animation. O_o

Borrowing from Mario seems to be a theme in these, even though they call him mega-man w/ wings

Imagine if Nintendo released their own official Flappy Bird-esque game. World = asploded.

Not bad. Reminds me more to Jetpack Joyride than to Flappy Bird. (Collect coins, laser barriers, buy one-time power-ups…).

On principle, I won't download any game with Flappy in the title. If you've made a decent game then let it stand on it's own.

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

Agree and disagree at the same time.
They should have named this someone else, because it really isn't that flappy-like.
But...they aren't exactly trying to "cash-in" on the success of others. There's no ads or IAPs.

Perhaps it's just me, but I'm seeing plenty of pop up ads. They aren't banner ads, they usually pop up after a run. I'm not saying it's a cash-in, but it this is not a donation to the App Store without any monetization.

As to the gameplay, I agree it's closer to Jetpack Joyride than to Flappy Bird. That said, the controls feel a bit sluggish which is not something I prefer in games. It just doesn't feel polished at all.

I suppose Weblock could be the reason I haven't seen any ads
