A previously iPad-only title is getting a shot at a much wider audience thanks to a new Universal update. Cloud Spin [$1.99] from Skytrain Studios is a visually stunning flight game that Eli and myself loved in our initial TA Plays video as well as in our 4.5 star review. In Cloud Spin, you play a rabbit named Lucky who's equipped with a jetpack and flies through on-rails levels trying to earn high scores with skilled flying. You can also unlock a free flight mode, and here you can kick back and enjoy the beauty of the game's environments while flying around wherever you please. It's highly reminiscent of using the flight cap in Mario 64 or even elements of the awesome Pilotwings series.

Basically, Cloud Spin is an incredibly fun game, and now iPhone and iPod touch folks can experience the fun too. That is, as long as you have at least an iPhone 4S or up or an iPod touch 5th generation. In addition, Cloud Spin is currently on sale for half off at 99¢. If you haven't played it previously because you didn't own an iPad, or you just passed on it for one reason or another, definitely grab it while it's a dollar and, although it is a bit on the short side, I can pretty much guarantee you'll have a great time playing through Cloud Spin.

    Reminds me a bit of Glyder.

    God, I miss that game.

    From the trailer, this looks NOTHING like Pilotwings.

  • 21tigermike

    Reminds me of "Nights" from the Saturn days

  • FedexD

    Someone needs to bring Panzer Dragoon to mobile.

  • bluspacecow

    What are the controls like on this game ?

    Joy pad and tilt to move ?

    If T2M how responsive is it ?

  • bigjack66

    Nice but I hoped Freeroaming would let you fly the levels you completed.

  • orangecan

    Looks great and very smooth on the touch 5g. I'm kind of enjoying it so far but I'm finding the view of the flyer really difficult to judge exactly where I'm going which leads me to crash and miss coins. I'm going to keep at it for a bit just in case it's me though because it has a certain something.
