    Haven't had so much fun in ages... Not even my newly bought Borderlands is giving me this much of a buzz.

    Feel like a review coming on - anyone up for it, or shall I?..

    I really like the game mechanic. It can be pretty casual but also challenging at the same time:

    Assuming you are in fever mode, the game ultimately boils down to finding the exact moment to dive down into a slope. If you are too late, you miss the slope and the fever ends. If you are too early, you bounce off a hill and the fever also ends.

    I like the game so much that I decided to record a song about it. Hope you all enjoy!

    Trying to purchase, but keep getting "cannot connect to iTunes" from my iPod touch. Any ideas?

    What I did was to quit the game from the multitask bar and launch it again. Works that way for me.

    Yeah I was playing just now and suddenly island one changed. Then I realized it's midnight. Very pleasant surprise. :)

  9. Hi everyone,

    i'am the developer of 'Tiny Wings' and very surprised (positiv =) that you already talk about my game. Many thanks for your great feedbacks especially to @djflippy. It makes me really proud that you like my game so much.

    Apple was a bit too fast with the approval process so i did not finished the gamplay video in time. Now the video is finished and ready for you to watch:



    @djflippy:
    can you please post the youtube video at the starting post of this thread?

    GameCenter support will be in the first update. More leaderbords like @medianotzu mentioned are also planned.

    Thanks to all of you for making me happy today. It is my first iPhone release and i have been working hard for it so it is pure balsam to my soul that you like it.

    have fun!

    Hi Andreas,

    Welcome to TouchArcade forums :) Glad you can chime in.

    I have a small reproducible bug to report. Whenever I get a push notification in the middle of a game and I tap on the screen before the game can show it's popup that says 'Get ready' or something, my game will crash.

    Can anyone else confirm this bug? :)

    Hi Andreas,

    Welcome! We have been waiting for you. That's a mighty charming game you've made and I have trouble putting it down. I can't say how much I'm loving the game.

    Right now there's a problem with sending highscores to OF such that we'll need to delete the game from multitask bar and relaunch for the scores to be registered.

    Also, are there plans to integrate Game Center? Not that it needs that, just a nice addition.

    Hey Andreas. I'm really enjoying the game. Bought it this morning. It just works. Kind of hard to explain, but you did good. :D

    I'm looking forward to the gamecenter support. If you could throw in some achievements and more statistics, at some point in the future, i'd be a very happy gamer.

    The simplicity and ease of control also makes me wonder if a split-screen, internet multiplayer type thing might be possible.

    Ah yes. He did. :eek: Obviously I was looking at the game when I was reading that post. :p

    Playing upside down is not that difficult, getting into island 4 on fever mode is the tricky one for me.

    Welcome to touchArcade, Andreas! I'm so glad you accepted our invitation. Literall overnight, many of the TA regulars have fallen in love with your game. When more people here become aware of it, expect to see a flood of positive reviews to begin showing up on iTunes. The crew here is very good about spreading the word. I hope that provides you with the same sense of the joy your game gives us.
