Hey StriveMind,
Thanks for posting this for me And yes, Unknown Orbit is indeed inspired by Tiny Wings (and WaveSpark before it).

Cheers,
Jay

Hey Jay, does this (or will it) support iCloud sync for those of us with more than one iThing?

Hi sweetdiss,
I'm afraid not, no. This was a mostly solo project by myself, and hence I stuck with the basics. I'll certainly look into it for future updates, though!

Holy crap! This looks (and SOUNDS) beautiful! Is the music in the trailer actually the BGM?

As for Tiny Wings, I think "inspired by" is about as far as anyone could go... this is about as far away from a clone as I think someone could get!

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

The trailer music is pretty much the music that plays during the game, but shortened a little.

Glad you don't see my game as a clone Good to hear!

Unfortunately, while UO serves as an interesting tech demo and could be the basis for something good with additional development, it's just not very interesting or fun as a game at the moment. The play area is relatively tiny, and the gameplay is simplistic without possessing the elegance or charm of TW. In addition, I]UO[/I] is tilt-only, which wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that the controls are twitchy as hell and the game doesn't include any kind of calibration or sensitivity options, which is a pretty major issue.

The game falls foul of far too many of the cardinal sins of iOS game development at present; hopefully these issues can be addressed in the near future, as the game certainly does have potential.
