Tiny Wings is a massively adorable game in which you help a bird travel as far as possible before nightfall. The bird’s wings are, sadly, too small for flight, requiring you to take advantage of momentum by pressing your finger to the screen to make him dive down a hill, and then release at the right time to send the little guy soaring off the incline.
Super cute idea: Tiny Wings is one of the most clever and charming twists on the classic running game formula. A bird whose wings are too small to fly? Heartmelting. Hearing the little fella yell “WAHOOO!” as you send him flying across islands is so adorable it almost hurts.
Great aesthetic: Tiny Wings’ aesthetic is wonderfully colorful, with each island being a pastel paradise of charming design.
Challenging and rewarding: It only takes a handful of minutes to play a round of Tiny Wings, but those minutes are packed with intensity. Tiny Wings keeps you on your toes and demands your full concentration if you want to excel. Thankfully, it feels pretty good when you’re on your A game, and as of consequence can be really addictive.
Fun, objective based leveling up: You can improve your scores by completing specific tasks while playing. Successfully executing these stunts will let you level up your nest, resulting in permanent multiplier bonuses for each subsequent run. Leveling up will often require you to play the game in a different, but fun, way.
Can be surprisingly frustrating: Despite being so fun and simple to pick up, Tiny Wings can become flustering due to radical difficulty spikes. The island topography can get ultra-challenging and ruin your entire run in just a matter of seconds.
Few games embody the ideal iOS gaming experience as Tiny Wings does. It scores big points for being plainly intuitive, exceedingly adorable, and deceptively challenging, and no iOS device should be without it.
