Hmmm, I think I've seen this type of game before...

What a shameless rip

i'm not gonna bash this game.. obviously it has taken a lot from a.. well known game. but there are some major differences:

the other game has no stage select - this has
the other game has no unlockable characters - this has
the other game has never gone free - this DID

This game is too cheap, I'll wait for a price increase

- stage select seems to be what the other 'well known game' has by default, different hills, nothing vastly different.
- is the other unlockable character a bird?
- went free cause they didn't find anyone who would pay for it at $2

i'm sorry but when i see games like this, that are almost exact clones of the original game, that people then charge the same price, and in this case, even more then what the original cost, then it really annoys me.

I guess they are relying on the 5 out of 4 people who think math is hard. IAP breakdown is like this: 600 coins for 99 cents, 1000 for $1.99 and other packs have 500 extra for another buck.

Coins are incredibly easy to get, not to mention there's a glitch that allows for a nice amount of coins to be built up, though it doesn't help on making achievements easier.

I think I'll keep this, but only for GameCenter. I didn't think it was that bad, but the glitches really brought it down for me.

To me the only true game in the Tiny Wings genre that deserves credit is Pilot Winds. But that also was in development at the same time as Tiny Wings.
