Thanks to a tip off from @ozdean just as the weekend was rolling around, I picked up Tiny Wings for a buck on my iPhone.
It’s pretty special. Comparisons are being made to Angry Birds, but where Angry Birds involves slinging obese birds into wonky structures built by green pigs, Tiny Wings is about gracefulness, momentum and speed.
The game’s creator, Andreas Illiger, credits himself with doing the design, code, art and music. To his credit it works, looks and sounds beautiful. Illiger used www.box2d.org for Tiny Wings’ physics. He also credits www.71squared.com for their in-depth iPhone developer tutorials.
Check out Tiny Wings on the App Store.
