Default Flappy Cars 3D for iOS [it's "flappy" but not normal Flappy Bird clone]

Hi all!
I made a game for Flappy Jam 2014.
I called it Flappy Cars 3D. It's not just "normal" clone of Flappy Bird, because it's in full 3D, it has different view and different gameplay (for example you can unlock 26 unique cars and play with them ).

Some features:
- Tap to flap and make your car fly!
- Don't destroy your car!
- 3D graphics.
- Unlock 26 playable cars.
- Retro music and sound effects.
- Global leaderboards and achievements.
- Hard to win, hard to play, addictive.

Some screens from current Android version:


I am working now on iOS version of my game and I wonder if i should change the title of it.
I read some reports that Apple Store sometimes doesn't accept the games with "Flappy" title, and there are so many games with "flappy" word released these days...
Moreover it looks like Google Play is removing my game from google play search results in some countries (in google play store on android devices)! In some cases even when you type full app name: Flappy Cars 3D. I don't know why, because I think the game is quite original... I don't want to have similar problems in App Store.

I think I have to change the game name, have you any tips, suggestions, new name ideas?

All help, support and opinions are welcome

I heard Google and the Apple store aren't allowing any more Flappy games (Which is great news !) so you may have trouble trying to get 'another' flappy bird clone/homage/copy out there

I'll buy new original games developers ! Just no more flappy stuff please !!

It was made for game jam, I had much fun when I was creating all the gfx, music, sounds and programing work, and I like to play it to It's a fun game for me

In Your opinion, should I abandon this game, and don't release it?

Its only my view, i'm sure you've learnt a lot from the experience which is great, i hope you try and create something else. Easy for me to say but i just wish people would use these new skills they've learnt to create something original.

Be interesting to know if Apple let you release it after what we've heard recently

The concept is ok, but the graphics, c'mon... It's extremely trashy.

Thanks ombudsman for your kind and nice words! I am very happy that you admire my work. It's great that you like this game jam creation made in 7 days and enjoy paper/cardboard style of cars.

I was very depressed that google play removes the game from search results, but now I see hope for new title!
Cars Can Fly 3D sounds great for me, thanks!

Don't care about what these guys say. i liked the game style but it does need some cleaning.

Keep it up but don't release it, ppl are done with flappy things. Use it as a start for a new game.

I do agree that you're probably better off taking what you've done here and adding new elements to make this more wholly original, rather than a Flappy homage in 3D, and I think you can do something great with it. For the record, I like Cars Can Fly 3D and voted so. Good luck!
