Lyre

'Lyre' is a voice-controlled competitive side-scroller. Player 1 shouts to add obstacles, and player 2 shouts to avoid them. The main character - Lyre Crawft - is a Lyrebird, an Australian native ground-dwelling bird famous for its ability to mimic sounds. The features of the obstacles created (e.g. position, size) are determined by the features of player 1's voice (e.g. pitch, volume). The attributes of Lyre's jumping action (e.g. height, length) are determined by the attributes of player 2's voice. Thus player 2 (Lyre) must mimic the sounds of player 1 in order to progress.
