Tiny Wings is an endless runner videogame developed by Andreas Illiger exclusively for iOS devices. This title has been a huge success, reaching the top of best-selling iOS app lists in just a short time after its release, even surpassing the popular game Angry Birds. Tiny Wings deals with a bird that dreams of flying. He can’t do it because of his small wings, but luckily there are loads of hills out there to serve as ramps.
Everything about the graphics is beautiful in this title. Scenarios are smooth and colorful, created following a hand drawn style that fits in with the soundtrack (which is also beautiful, by the way). Your bird will eventually jump from one island to another, changing the colors and pattern of the scenario. Moreover, graphics are procedural, which means that scenarios will have a new look every time you start a new run.
How to Play
In Tiny Wings you play the role of an overweight bird that can’t stay airborne for long. The bird dreams of flying all the time, but his tiny wings can’t support his weight. This title has simple controls, but it will take you a few runs to fully “click”. The bird moves automatically to the right and not tapping the screen causes him to flap its wings, trying to stay in the air. When you tap, the bird ceases flapping and becomes a dead weight. You are free to use this weight to accelerate into the slopes and immediately let it go after an upslope to launch the bird into the air as far as you can. Three perfect landings in a row allow you to enter the fever mode, which earns additional points as long as you keep performing perfect landings.

Tiny Wings is an endless runner game technically, but unlike others this one does have an end, regardless of your skills. Each run starts at dawn, and your final score is based on how far you can fly to the right before nightfall. To make things more interesting, this title offers a list of tasks to complete that grants you a nest upgrade, which increases your score multiplier. These tasks change with each upgrade, adding new goals while you play.
