App of the Week / Game of the Week: Tiny Wings

‘You have always dreamed of flying – but your wings are tiny.’

Tiny Wings is a cute game in which you help a little bird with tiny wings to fly by jumping with the help of hills. You accelerate downhill by pressing the touchscreen and if you stop touching at the right moment, the bird will make a big jump and fly a bit. It is all a matter of timing.

The game is easy to learn but hard to master. Highly recommended.

Check out the author’s website. There you can not only find a trailer (which explains the game much better than I can) but you can also download the cute theme music for free: http://www.andreasilliger.com/

When I wrote this post, I was looking at version 1.1.0 for iPhone and iPod Touch. Supports Game Center and requires iOS 3.1 or later. Available for less then a EURO / Dollars in the AppStore.

Tried with iOS 4.2 on an iPhone 3GS.
