Angry Birds has lost its position as the No. 1 paid app in the iTunes App Store. Tiny Wings is the new bird on top of the chat now.

Tiny Wings concept

As a bird with really tiny wings, you’re unable to fly; you can only sort of glide with enough momentum to get high enough. Fortunately, on the 2D side-scrolling islands which you call home, there are plenty of hills to build up speed. The player has only one control: touch and hold the screen to make the bird stop flapping and dive toward the ground.

The idea is to hit the downward slopes of hills while diving to build speed, then shoot up the next upward slope and start flapping, launching into the air and picking up speed until gravity pulls you back down. It’s all about accurate timing and planning ahead while racing the clock.
