App description: You have always dreamed of flying - but your wings are tiny. Luckily the world is full of beautiful hills. Use the hills as jumps - slide down, flap your wings and fly! At least for a moment - until this annoying gravity brings you back down to earth. But the next hill is waiting for you already. Watch out for the night and fly as fast as you can. Otherwise flying will only be a dream once again.

Tiny Wings was chosen as the iPhone Game of the Year in App Store Rewind 2011 in Europe and many other countries.Thank you Apple and a big thank you to all Tiny Wings fans!

Two game modes: "Day Trip" and "Flight School"
Play as the mama bird or one of her four children
15 hand-designed levels in the new "Flight School" mode

I'm really enjoying this one. Fly and slide a pudgy little bird through beautifully rendered, procedurally generated landscapes, in order to get as far as you can by nightfall, when your ornery little ornithopter lays down her weary head to rest. The art style is very painterly and the music is fun, but soothing. There are a number of different islands to reach, each with their own terrain to explore.

You are presented with a series of hills you must traverse, which is accomplished by holding a finger on the screen to dive down the slopes and lifting your finger to fly up and over the hills. Those are the only controls. The game is all about timing and rhythm. You have to gauge your speed and judge when to dive, in order to retain your momentum. Simply elegant controls matched with the right-brain depth of play make for a very rewarding experience.

There are goodies to collect along the way and upgrades for your nest that are obtained by completing predefined objectives. At the end of every flight, it scores you based on islands reached, number of cloudtouches, fever mode streaks, and goodies grabbed. The game is OpenFeint-enabled, offering both Achievements and Leaderboards. None of these things are what make the game good, it's the fact that the game allows you to enter the flow state.

Playing Tiny Wings is very Zen-like; the feeling one gets when hitting the slopes perfectly and soaring into the sky is profound. This game is like flying through a storybook and it captures the beauty of dreams.

Update: After playing the game for quite a while I started to feel a bit strange, so I wanted to give you guys a heads up. I believe the feeling was what is commonly referred to as "happiness". I stopped playing immediately, of course, just to be safe, but I'm pretty certain that's what it was. Therefore, I must offer my professional opinion on the matter, which is as follows:

If every person in the world played Tiny Wings, there would be no wars.
