Worst non-existing games and game ideas

I was thinking about how bad some games are and I thought it would be fun to make a thread to post really horrible non-existing games and game ideas.
Here's my entries:
Captcha Madness, a game where you have to enter as many captchas you can before the time runs out. You have 60 seconds and for every mistake you lose 5 seconds.

How Many Marbles?!, the classic guess how many marbles are in the jar contest. The game would have the most insane 3D marble graphics. You can move around the jar to get a better look at the marbles and zoom in really close to see those sweet 3D high rendered marbles in all their glory. Of course the game could only be supported by the latest devices. It would have two modes.
Blitz Marble Mania mode, where you just keep guessing until you guess the correct amount of marbles.
Classic mode, where you get one guess and have to wait 30 days and then you will get a notification if you were correct or not. If you win you get a crappy virtual prize like a picture of a hat.

Guess the number:

You get one shot at guessing a number. Choose between 1-10,1-100 or 1-1000.

You score points equal to number of possible outcome. So if you guess correct in a 1-10 range, you get 10 points.

Points are cumulative, and you have archivements for guessing right 10 times in the 1-1000 range. Serious replayability, never the 'same' game twice.

Perhaps with a timer.. you can guess one number every 5'th minute, with IAP consumable to reduce that delay..

or, buy a pack of 'guess 10 times' in same game for just 1$ a pop..

Tap to fly

You play a little bird trying to move through Mario pipes and you tap to flap it's wings. Goal is to get through as many pipes as possible, and it's designed to be very hard

Flappy Bird is great compared to Candy Crush Saga, for example.
