Tiny Wings on LSD. I beta-tested the game. In the very first seconds, I was a bit disappointed that one of my favorite devs (Bean's Quest ist one of the best platformers I've ever played) ist "just going for another Tiny Wings clone". But oh boy, was I wrong. This game is soooo much more. And yes, easily on par with Punch Quest to me. Easy to learn, hard to master. The production is brilliant throughout and just seeing the loading screen makes you feel sure to be in for something great. Music is lovely, controls just work perfectly, the additional characters are cool and there is just so much to see and try. And when I was surfing on a planet's ring for the first time - by accident - I couldn't stop smiling.

Definitely one of the best endless games in the store and I hope people give this game some time to dive into all the mechanics and little tricks. Mistaking it for another Tiny Wings isn't doing this game any justice, it's a lot better and in the end pretty different.

Can't wait what's coming next from these devs.

IAP not really needed to progress, so might not go free, it's not Chillingo.

Looks like Mikey has learned some new tricks. After Bean's Quest I'd buy almost anything made by these guys. Great stuff.

One time power ups?!?! You mean we can't pick our favourite pet...fatten him up on cake just once and have unending high scores...it's a shame after one use he must go hibernate back to his cave like a bear.

If your good enough you don't need the pets at all, they don't really increase your runs.

Just bought it

I just bought it, will try it now and will post a review very soon! The soundtrack made me buy this one, I love the retro style, reminded me of Turrican! By the way, is there any chance to see Turrican or Shadow of the best on IOS one day? those two are my very favorite with KickOff and F-Zero
