Tiny Wings on Bumpy Road !

Everything loads, looks, sounds and works pretty darn good in this amazing cute and clever made pearl. IF the (very good) controls click with you, you already might be addicted.
Since it feels too tiny on my iphone, i could see the ipad mini or up in favor to score higher, because there is a lot going on on screen. If you like the video, don't wait, get it.

Highly recommended !

PS: skills and fast eyes needed !

Got some time to play this one, and while I find gameplay interesting (crush all erflings in combos while a timer is on, when it finishes it goes into another location and so on, you have 3 lives, try no to hit certain things or you'll die, and then repeat. Overall it is very funny) controls don't follow... they are... hard to master I guess... you move the floor beneath Captain Bubblenaut to catch him and make him roll and speed to crush enemies, the thing is that the main character sometimes it moves to fast, faster than you can swipe the screen. Or maybe its me. Will try more later as the game itself seems a lot of fun

Yeah sadly. If the dev is reading us, let's say him "Make it universal!"

Hey guys! I'm one of the devs. We are indeed working on an ipad version, that will give the player more space to move. Glad people are enjoying the game!

It's a shame when devs in 2013 ask iOS customers to double-dip by making an iPad version, instead of going Universal.

I won't mind if the HD version turns out to be universal.
