Be sure not to miss this excellent entry to the Flappy Jam: Lava Bird, by Unept, turns the Flappy Bird idea on its head by letting the player make the most of their own obstacles.

Every time the player flaps, the lava bird spits out a fire ball, which then has to be dodged. Ice birds are creeping up from behind, though, and hitting them kills the lava bird, too. So players must spit out enough fireballs to kill the encroaching flock of ice birds, but dodge the missiles that will save them.

It's tricky enough that the creator has only gotten a score of 78. My high score is 35, and I'm not sure how I got that in the first place. How high a score can you get? Head on over to itch.io and try it for yourself.
