App description: Say hello to Mr Flap, the little square bird that'll make your head spin!

How far can you get?

Hello,

We just released a little game called Mr Flap.



Full video: https://vimeo.com/87670895


As you can see, Mr Flap is not an ordinary Flappy Bird clone: we tried to bring some new ideas and to match our own style.

We developed this game in 4 days, just for fun and for the Flappy Jam.

Check it out, it's free. Be careful, the game is really hard
We would like to get some feedback from the Touch Arcade folks.

I've had a quick go and I really like the style, the icon is nice, though it reminds me too much of horrid twitter . Its very difficult, I've only managed to get 1 so far! I think on the iPad it would be a lot better if it was bigger and landscape, it'll keep me occupied for a while

Favourites (well, a few ): Pizza vs Skeletons, Ridiculous Fishing, Supercow, Elemental Rage HD, Knightmare Tower, Heroes of Loot, QuestRush, Ocreanhorn, Phoenix Wright, Monster Adventures, Kinghunt, Aquaria, LvLn, Clash of Puppets, Skulls of the Shogun, continue?

I love it. Even the flappy bird haters should have a look at this.
Love the gamecentre design too, wish the real thing was designed like that.
So far my high score is two.

This has to be the best thing to come out of the flappy bird malarkey.

Agreed. This is easily the best Tap to Flap App I've played, including the original. I haven't got around to playing any of the Flappy Jam games but this is precisely the way the original's success should have been approached and adapted with new ideas rather than the cash-ins we're getting flooded with.

My best is currently 0.75 points...in my head anyway, I refuse to accept 0! No doubt my score will be improving soon as I intend to play this a lot more! Cheers for the heads up Cloudpuff!

Edit: Just got 2, I even did a little dance!

Just got to five and love the colour change. I'm guessing this happens every five points, the music makes it feel even more tense too. I think this will be my game if the week.

Even though the ads are non intrusive I'd happily pay to remove them.

Yeah I've been pming people like crazy cos I think even the flappy bird fans are getting tired of the clones and the word flap might put people off.
This is something special and deserves some love.

Thanks guys, your posts almost made me cry ^^
I'm really glad you like the game!

Yes, the color changes every five laps and one more trap is added too. We also adjust some parameters like the thickness of the traps or the rotation speed but these fine adjustments were not made to be noticed by the player.

Mr Flap just became my favourite Flappy game on iOS ahead of Flapthulhu and I didn't think that was possible. I really like your minimalist and colourful style, which is shown in your other games. I did download ON/OFF before but don't believe I ever played it. I'll check that one out, as well as your other games.
