Is Tiny Wings the New Angry Birds?

by Range

As addictive as the seemingly simple but obviously complicated Angry Birds game is, I wonder what will be next. It seems that creating new levels and birds isn’t what that will be. I think Tiny Wings is where it will be happening next.

The game is the brainchild of Andreas Illiger and basically, you have to make an (angry?) fat bird fly by using the downward momentum he gains going downhill. You simply touch the screen when heading down, and let up when going up. It sounds simple, but it takes a long time to master. It’s more of a platformer than a puzzle game, but I think that’s good. The game includes procedural graphics, meaning that each time you play, the game levels change to keep you on your toes.

You can go around discovering more islands as you take big jumps off hills. It’s currently available for just $0.99 at the App Store for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad (but not in HD).

    Yes, this little game has started to take over my iPhone and iPad as my new bedtime ritual – now that I’ve grown frustrated with trying to get the remaining 3-star levels that I’ll never achieve on Angry Birds. It’s not as deep as Angry Birds, but it’s definitely as addictive. The only problem is that it’s sorta like playing Cannabalt in that you can easily get stuck no matter how good a player you are, and never get past the 3rd or 4th island.

  2. This game is very simple, yet amazing. The music in the background also adds to it. Very good and relaxing song.
