App description: Start building some bridges, and help the Fat Birds get back home!

The Fat Birds have gotten themselves into some serious trouble. At first, they utterly disregarded their flying lessons, and now the evil mastermind Mad Hamster managed to destroy their airship! How can you help the Fat Birds? You simply have to build some bridges, that are substantial enough to withstand the birds weight! This is the only means of overcoming all this hazardous wilderness together. Youre about to embark on a trip to the Red Desert, the Caverns of the Eternal Night, the World of Snow, the Caves of Ice, and last but not least the Everburning Tropics. All the best of luck!

The game features:

- 60 unique levels
- 5 separate worlds to traverse
- Realistic representation of the principles of physics involved in bridge construction
- Construction strength calculated in real time
- An easy to use interface
- Different music score for every world
- Integration with the Game Center
- Integration with the iCloud

So pump up those building skills, and give the Fat Birds a helping hand!

Strange. It's definitely not passable here. I tried it twenty times or so. Look at my screenshots. The error is right at the very beginning. The first board vanishes from alone although I placed it. But the birds can pass even without (visible) board and fall down behind the board (through the second—visible—board). And even when it's there (when I place it once more in a second run) the birds are falling down through the second board.









As everyone can see it's not okay. The correct way is marked (white dots) but there is no board (third screenshot). There MUST be an error. And it happens no matter with grid on or off. I didn't try your solution exactly—your construction is a tiny bit different but that should make no difference. There should be more than one solution possible.

There are other errors as well (see my first posting in this thread).

Please correct that because for me the game ends @ III/10 and I am missing the last two worlds. Or make it so that I can choose any level.

We can't repeat it... We built the bridge (like you did) on several iPads and everything is ok - it's correct solution. Did you restart game or so on? I will send you an e-mail with some info in a few minutes.

Does anyone have something similar?

Yes. Restarted game and even rebooted iPad.

Edit: I forgot to mention that it only happens when the complete bridges of that level are built (only one or two boards remaining). It doesn't happen when I let em walk over the first (and second) bridge alone (with no others built and lots of boards remaining).

Edit II: Please add that I can save my best solution of a level.

I played through this game a bit more, and I really like it. It has a ton of potential.

As Habakuk mentioned there are some glitches/bugs in a few areas (III-3 sticks out in my mind, crash to desktop) where the order you lay the pieces matters, or else the birds will drop through the bridge or follow the wrong sections.

Overall though the game is a lot of fun and I think it deserves more attention from gamers. A little bit more polish and I can see this game taking off!

Here's an example of a bug that creates an unpassable level, and often crashes the app:

Notice how the dotted path isn't continuous. Usually if I keep messing with the pieces the gap floats around, and eventually it'll crash the app.

Ok, we have it. Thank you for your help!

I have to say that it was really special case. :-) The update is on the way to the App Store. What more the Fat Birds will be optimized for the 4-inch Retina display on iPhone 5.

Thank you very much for your feedback!

Finished the game! Any plans for more levels? 20 level addons for $1 each would be ideal, dunno if that would be viable for you, though.

For now we are focusing on porting the Fat Birds to Windows 8 and this may take some time... The port for Mac OS X is almost done - we are going to submit it to Apple this week.

If you would like to more levels for now you can download free version for iPhone (Link). You will find there 5 levels, which are not available in the full version. Free version for iPad is in progress. We are also considering adding new levels to the full version in the future but it will be "free update" I think. Thank you for asking - I see that you enjoy our game.
