Ironpants/Splashy fish

What now that the infuriating Flappy Bird has gone? What will make us want to smash our phones in frustration?

There are many other games to keep us tapping on our screens.

Ironpants is one of the better Flappy clones out there. Here, you control a superhero called Ironpants, who doesn't seem to be wearing pants.

Your job? Avoid the wooden boxes, just like the bird avoided the pipes.

Be warned: This game is much harder than Flappy Bird as the screen moves faster and it's far too easy to fly too high or too low.

You could also try Splashy Fish. Almost the same as Flappy, bar the change of species and a slightly higher bounce.

So far, I've managed to get only single digit scores for both.
