Flappy Divers are coming soon

Dear Community,

I would like to share with you our latest small project, inspired by the infamous Flappy Bird game mechanic (and its predecessors ).

The game is an endless underwater treasure hunt, packed with funny dead effects, sound and voice over effects, backed by a very energetic music track.

The game is free, universal, and coming soon for iOS and Android devices.

EDIT: updated info:
out for Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...mtreasuremania

Here is the gameplay trailer:

That's inevitability.

Cant wait for a card game variant called Flappy Decks.

Well, at the end we have changed our mind: while the game was planned to be released as a kind of flappy-clone, but finally we decided to take another route, and we publish it as a spinoff game of our upcoming original title, Divemaster, which is a divemaster simulator in casual visual style.

The new title is: Divemaster - Treasure Mania.

The iOS version is under approval, the android port is here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.helioxfilm.dmtreasuremania

Maybe at a shorter term, but we believe that this little game has more potential than a simple Flappy-clone. We hope that it will support the other game under a common "namespace".

Good choice to change the name. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that any game with flappy in the title attempting to show "inspiration" from the predecessor is getting rejected.

It might be true very easily. From the ASO point of view there not much advantage anymore to include Flappy in the title, there is so many apps now in the store. And personally seeing this clone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0t3Gn8Gw_lY was simply to much for me

When I did searches for the title decision, now there is more chance to be discovered by keywords like treasure and treasure mania than flappy + anything. Beyond that, treasures are in fact in my game, so it is a much better fit. Still, I included flappy mechanics in the description, so if you searched for flappy + divers, my game is quite close to the top.
The chance that anyone will search for that particular term is very little, but still...
