=======

PixWing is going to change the way you think about arcade flying forever. With unique whole-body controls you have a total 360 degrees control where you look at. Your device becomes a mirror into the game world... and the world itself if gorgeous to look at with vigorous colors, various environments and pixel-art graphics with modern 3D style. Play as you like: beat time challenges and shoot blimps or just fly around finding collectibles.

=======

UNIQUE CONTROLS

With gyroscope you'll need to turn up and down, left and right to navigate. PixWing even tracks the amount of calories you burn that way.
Of course you can always switch to regular touchstick controls.

VIGOROUS GRAPHICS

High fidelity but retro-style visuals using vivid colours make flying around joyful and entertaining. Explore surreal aztec ruins, a tropical volcano and a city built on floating island. There's also a wide range of planes - from simple avions to flying cars and monsters.

EASY TO LEARN, HARD TO MASTER

Well-balanced gameplay allows everyone to enjoy the game. It doesn't matter if you're looking for a pleasant flight or a tight time challenge - PixWing has it all.

EXTRAS

- Game Center support with leaderboards and achievements
- High quality, arcade-style music
- Complete package - no in-app purchases or advertisments

I'm wondering how the traditional controls work out. I'm disabled and can't do the whole body bendy twisty thing. Not without a ton of my pain medicine lol but I really like the graphical style. If the traditional on screen controls are good then I'm in!

Fear not, there are on-screen joy stick controls as well. (As I've just discovered with relief!)

Gyro controls? NO.

Gyro controls with health counter? Hmm... Umm... Yes?

I dont remember anything doing this in a game yet. This isnt just tilt controls... It's gyro, means moving around a lot. Which would usually be worse that tilt, other than the fact that it promotes that as a bit of exercise.

It says something about alternative on-screen stick controls somewhere in the description, so you should be okay.
