Flap through the horrible gates of R'lyeh and unleash the Madness to open a portal to the eldritch dimension... or will the madness take you?

New in version 2, you can now beat up lesser monsters as you fly through a disgusting cave. You can also unleash and play as a new horrible beast.

- Flapping
- Fighting
- Madness

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Flapthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl flaptagn!

What's New in Version 2.1

- Fixed missing leaderboards, now you have 5!
- Less annoyingly mind-numbingly farty drone sound. Thanks @jcompton.

Customer Reviews

Best flappy clone by far!

But the entrances need to be adjusted a little, Cthulhu seems to hit them WAY too much without even trying. And I never knowtest the "mind numbingly farty" noise that was addressed in the last update, but oh we'll.

My only other gripe is what do I do with all the skulls I collected? I unlocked everything but I still collect skulls? But I can't do anything with them? Add some new characters to unlock, like maybe a disembodied H.P. Lovecraft head, or a bat-like creature of some sort? Even a flying skull? Use could use skulls to alter the appearance of the background or something, I don't know. Great game anyway, just needs some more attention and some added extras for replay value.

Derek (lovecraftian fan)

Fantastic! If you like flappy bird, but wish it was a bit more... Interesting, seems the classic Lovecraftian atmospherics are yet again the answer. Subtle soundtrack adds to this. However, i only give 4 stars because now that i have unlocked fight mode and the shoggoth, my skulls are just piling up. Perhaps in an update, maybe we could have another mode or 2? Preferably more creatures, the Cthulhu mythos is rife with them. Perhaps some elder things, night-gaunts, Nyarlathotep, all those good things. Maybe also some perks that you can purchase, to keep skull collecting an object of the game at all times. Thanks for the great game, keep up the good work!

Laggy animation

This game is very fun and I love everything about it, except for one giant bug. For a game that relies very heavily on timing, the animation is very laggy. It's so frustrating that I have much more sophisticated games than this one and they have much smoother animation. When I'm playing, the game will lag just a fraction of a second and will cause me to lose. If this bug could be fixed I would give this game 5 stars.
