iPhone App Video Review: Tiny Wings

Feb 28, 2011

It has been quite a long time since an app has sat on top of Angry Birds in the App Store so you could imagine my excitement when I saw Tiny Wings holding the top spot. This meant Tiny Wings had to be a good game and when I finally checked it out, it didn’t disappoint.

The premise of the game is very simple. Your goal is to see just how far you can fly until the sun goes down. To do this, you use the hills to help launch your bird  in the air. Tapping the screen will fold your bird’s wings and help you down, while letting go will flap your wings to fly.

The game played surprisingly smooth and it was extremely rewarding to be able to chain successful launches together. The art and music in the game just add to the relaxing and polished feel, complementing the simple gameplay. The game even has types of achievements you can earn. Upon completing a certain list of challenges, you will earn a new nest that your bird sits on. The better the nest you have, the more your score will be multiplied at the end of the round.

The only thing this game seemed to be missing was Game Center support. This would have been nice to be able to compare scores with my friends.

But overall, the game was extremely addicting and a really fun experience. Definitely check this one out.
