For the hell of it, I just looked at the last 100 games that have been released to the App Store.
61 of them are flappy clones. I've seen an influx of clones several times before, but over 1/2 of all apps released? That's just crazy...
Anyway...

This almost seems like something Dong would make, but it isn't a clone at least.
This stood out as interesting among the sea of meh.

Adding this to my gotw nominees.

I absolutely LOVE this game.

It's super easy to learn, yet extremely hard to be good at.
You control the goalie and simply swipe left and right to block the incoming shots. You receive 10 points per blocked shot, and your combo meter raises with each shot you block as well.

The controls are perfect.
The game is simple, yet addictive.

Gamecenter leaderboards.

Haven't seen a single ad or IAP.

Hey Lazer Kat

Thank you so much for the comments. It was good fun to make and it is even more rewarding when you hear great feedback. GOTW! wow...thanks!

v1.1 went up today which fixes a sign into Game Center bug and as a result I am starting to see scores flow in now, which is great!

Would love to see this mentioned on TA if anyone is watching

Yeah, this is quite nice. Took me a little while to realise that your multiplier doesn't increase automatically.

Also, seems to have GC issues. Only seems to sign into GC and save your score if you view the leaderboards BEFORE you start, and doesn't resubmit scores. Got an 1840 that hasn't registered.

Edit: psychic response from the dev! Great Still doesn't seem to be resubmitting high scores, but hopefully new ones will register.

I'm glad people are noticing this game, I just wish Andy wasn't one of them.

Great score, Andy.
