    The simple gameplay in Tiny Wings is sublime, but there's an intangible aspect to it that makes it a total joy to play.

    This impressive "one-button" App Store entry is simple by design, but deep and engaging enough to make it more than worth its $0.99 price point.

    It just goes to show that sometimes, it's the simplest of concepts that make a hit.

    Minimalistic games like Tiny Wings will never truly replace more substantial titles, but its polished gameplay and presentation make it a hard game to ignore.

    These pseudo-achievements steer players toward new ways to play the game, diabolically transforming what seems like a pretty little distraction into an obsession.

    It taps into the brain, and pours in happiness straight into the otherwise grey and dull cortex. A truly un-missable budget title!

    Cheerful, charismatic and mesmerizing, Tiny Wings is really fun to look at and play with: it perfectly fits for quick plays but it requires some practice to master jumps and slides. Visually it's simply beautiful, with procedurally generated islands and wonderful sound effects. Tiny Wings is a little, colourful and unpretentious game, but like many other tiny iPhone games it can touch the heart of the player.

    If you love casual fast paced games with a cute factor Tiny Wings is a must have. The action flows quite smoothly, and the graphics are amazing and change dynamically as day turns to night.

    Tiny Wings is a charming, compelling and addictive sidescroller about a bird who needs help to fly due to his small wings. By pressing the screen at the right time and thus giving the bird speed, the game gives you a distinct feel of flow very rarely seen in mobile games.

    Thanks to charming presentation, tight rhythmic gameplay, and keen replayability, Tiny Wings is well worth flapping onto the App Store for.

    A great little play. If it clicks with you, you'll be as hooked as the gamers that have already sent it rocketing up the App Store charts.

    Tiny Wings is a good game. But it's extremely raw when it comes to options such as being able to listen to your own music, and it also left out GameCenter on its initial launch. The gameplay is addictive, though, and the artwork isn't too shabby.

    It's so simple to play yet hard to master and the graphics are just awesome.

The constantly changing landscape removes the whole bored-after-four-days issue, while the clumsy sounds and overall image of the bird give this game its innocence. A real stretch from the norm of iOS games today, Tiny Wings is a slow and relaxing, yet competitive game that can be seen as the gift that keeps on giving. Full Review »
