Tiny Wings is a sweet app in which you teach a baby bird to fly by helping him run down the hills to get enough momentum to soar, collecting coins along the way.
Why we like it:
Touch the screen to “tuck” the baby birds’ wings in. This helps him go faster downhill and gain momentum. Don’t tuck on the uphill stretches though, or he won’t make it to the end of the level before nightfall.
Speaking of nightfall, it’s no big deal. The bird falls asleep. No death or drama that will upset sensitive kids. This is a very cute app at a nice price. We can see why it easily went to the top of the charts.
