Tiny Wings Review
"Simple but skillfull one touch arcade game" is how developer Andreas Illiger summed up his first app store hit Tiny Wings.
At the price of a chocolate bar this addictive game is a must-buy for a gamer of any age and any level. It provides hours upon hours of manic gameplay and entertainment, of which is mostly filled up of cries of joy as you reach the next nest and earn that prestigious X30 multiplier.
The aim is straightforward: "You have always dreamed of flying-but your wings are tiny. Luckily the world is full of beautiful hills."
The instructions are simple: Touch to drop your wings and become heavier to ride the hill and let go to release and fly for as long as possible.
The early multipliers take next to no skill to advance from (no offence anyone stuck on them) but as you climb to the likes of X26 and X28 you're looking at hours of solid flying to complete the three objectives needed to advance. Not much is awarded from achieving the objectives except for a new nest and of course a score multiplier which helps boost your highscore.
Now with a Game Centre Update you can compare scores and stats with friends and compete for the highest score. Along with that there is 30 "tricky" achievements to complete.
This game is surprisingly addictive for a one-touch/button game but never gets boring. Tiny Wings, for me, is the game of 2011 and we're only in April! Fantastic and being only 59p you'd be tiny-minded not to buy it!
