App description: Fly biplanes, jets or even a dragon in this stunningly retro themed & colourful environment. Challenge your skills in the time trials as you fly through checkpoints collecting gems or chill out and just fly freely!

PixWing is going to change the way you think about arcade flying forever. With unique full-body controls, you have complete 360 degrees control. Your device becomes a window into the game world. And the world itself is gorgeous to look at with vigorous colours, 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 the hidden collectibles.

- With gyroscope, you'll need to turn up and down, left and right to navigate. PixWing even tracks the number of calories you burn that way.
- Of course, you can always switch to regular touch stick controls, or steering wheel. Whatever you feel best with.

- 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.

- 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.

- Leaderboards and achievements
- High quality, arcade-style music

"Well done guys; the game's great."

"Yeah.... too great. MetaGonzo's going to love it and I hate that guy!"

"What can we do? We're just about to publish?!"

"Quick! Take out screen rotation and make it so that you can't mute the music separately from the SFX!

I feel you Meta, the no screen totation is just weird in 2017...I found a bigger issue. Devs, the one-time $1 offer to get the tickets and boxes didn't work for me. I tried to restore at he home screen and that doesn't apparently function as nothing happened.....a little help please

Came back to this game ONLY because there seems to be no way to reach the devs and I'm not going to bother Apple with a refund (I paid the $1 for the special offer on tickets and money but never got anything and the restore purchase button seems to be a place holder as it does nothing). Well, I found a bug big enough to really cause frustration. I'm on a stage where I have to shoot several ships positioned close enough to cliffs that you have to navigate carefully. Not a problem except when the fire button also has the added "benefit" of jerking your plane hard left as well....slammed into the cliffs about five times in a row and then left a review on the app store. I made sure it wasn't my thumb sliding off, which shouldn't affect it because there is a virtual stick to control the plane. I can't recommend this one. I want to, but the devs seem impossible to contact and there seems to be zero chance of an update.
