You have always dreamed of flying - but your wings are tiny. Luckily the world is full of beautiful hills. Use the hills as jumps - slide down, flap your wings and fly! At least for a moment - until this annoying gravity brings you back down to earth. But the next hill is waiting for you already. Watch out for the night and fly as fast as you can. Otherwise flying will only be a dream once again.
Tiny Wings was chosen as the iPhone Game of the Year in App Store Rewind 2011 in Europe and many other countries. Thank you Apple and a big thank you to all Tiny Wings fans!

Soar high on tiny wings
This game rightly deserves to be rated and ranked as highly as it is because it combines what makes many classic iOS games a success to me. Simple use of touch physics for control with beautiful original clean graphics, a catchy soundtrack and casual repetitive gameplay.
It might not YET offer the breadth of challenge to everyone for as long as they might expect (but I still cant reach island 10).
Bravo Mr developer, you deservedly joined the iOS classics club ... I hope you will continue to innovate develop future iOS titles.
I can certainly see why this game is liked but I don't quite see why it gets the accolades it does.
With inconsistent registering of your ↝ slides*, restart after restart to try getting a perfect run, game after game of slow upward crawls because you missed a downward slope that you can't yet see while travelling at break neck speeds, then before you know it you've wasted so much of your time & moved nowhere. Before you realise it, you're left with a frustrating time burglar that's not really very fun to play.
It's VERY well presented, audio is lovely & not bad in small doses, but as soon as you spend time on objectives it just loses its charm.
*What can look like a perfectly good slide with no jarring speed loss or bouncing, can sometimes lose your fever mode. Another time I've had fever mode stop on an upwards slope.
The new update including more islands and other birds has the made it more interesting than before, saying that the other birds a near impossible to beat. Having got ahead half way through the map the game decides to give all other birds an automatic boost therefore cheating to get back to where you are or further, this does not happen to you if loosing! Gets very frustrating and needs updating further.
