Is Tiny Wings The Angry Birds Of 2011?

Angry Birds is a wonderful game. But it’s so 2010. And we’re in 2011. We need a new mobile game to fall in love with. And this might be it.

Released in February, Tiny Wings is the work of Andreas Illiger, and it is a beautiful-looking game. The art style is sensational and looks beautiful at 60 frames per second. And the gameplay is wonderfully simple, making it perfect for the iPhone or iPad.

It’s also not some simple noodler for casual players. I’m having difficulty timing my takeoffs and landings. That’s not because the game is broken – it isn’t by any stretch – it’s because the game is challenging. I like that.

But what’s really charmed me about the game is that there’s a story – well, not so much a story as a conflict. The bird wants to fly, but since his wings are so small, he has a hard time. Thus, he needs to build up enough speed to take to the skies.

Tiny Wings is getting glowing reviews online. No wonder, it really seems to offer the total package – only at $1.19.
