So viewers want to see variety in their flappy games. Even the granddaddy of scrolling flappy games, Nintendo's Balloon Fight, is marked as a bad choice. So is Balloon Kid, Nintendo's attempt to elaborate on a flappy platformer.
I wonder what could be done beyond a straight port to make the game more interesting to watch. Angry Birds had at least an excuse plot of a kidnapping; what could be done for Flappy Bird?

Fix that for you.

Have you considered adding music to the game?

How though? Animate the tiles in the background? I thought about having the pipes be sprites and using raster effects to split the scrolling with the floor, but that doesn't seem possible.

Animating the tiles with the bushes, buildings and clouds should be enough.

Unfortunately, whoever made the cart screwed up the mirroring, so there are glitching graphics on the left :(
