Tiny Wings by Andreas Illiger is $0.99 to download in the app store. It’s an adventurous little game where you’ll work to fly as a little bird with very tiny wings! Throughout the game, there are various hills that can be used to help you fly. You can use them as jumps, or even slides! Both are great ways to pick up speed before beginning to flap those wings! The object of the game is to see how far you can fly in just one day. The night is haunting you, so fly as far as you can, as fast as you can!
Tiny Wings’ gameplay is simple. There is only one button used for controls. Simply tap the screen to fold your wings. This will make you heavy, which will help you gain speed when moving downhill. Do not touch the screen while sliding uphill. This will make you flap your wings and become lightweight. Instead, you should wait until doing big jumps to try flying! The hills within the world of Tiny Wings are the key to flying far! When sliding down them, you’ll pick up a great speed, which will take you farther and farther than you ever thought your little wings could take you! When using them as jumps, you’ll be able to land for a second with just enough time to start again! Tiny Wings is a distance game where you’ll work as hard as you can to make the longest flight possible, before the night falls! There are two gaming modes: Day Trip and Flight School, both of which I love! You also have an option to play as the mama bird or one of her four babies! Tiny Wings is an addictive little game that will have you working hard to fly further and further! How far can you fly in one day?

iTunes describes Tiny Wings like so:
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.
