Classic iPhone Game 'Tiny Wings' Launches on Apple Arcade This Friday

Over a decade after being released on the App Store, the classic hit iPhone game Tiny Wings is coming to Apple Arcade this Friday.

tiny wings plus
Tiny Wings is a casual game that involves tapping and holding the screen to control a bird whose wings are too tiny to fly. The game tasks players with outrunning the sun as they fly a bird across procedurally generated islands. Players must tap on the screen at the perfect moment so that the bird slides down hills and gains enough momentum to reach the next island before the sun sets, while aiming to complete tricks for score multipliers.

Tiny Wings, created by Andreas Illiger, was first released on the App Store in 2011 and remains one of the most popular paid games in the casual category. On Apple Arcade, the game will be titled Tiny Wings+ and it will be available for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. Like all Apple Arcade titles, the game does not have any in-app purchases or ads.

Other games coming to Apple Arcade include NBA 2K22 Arcade Edition on October 19 and Kingdom Rush Frontiers, which doesn't have a release date yet.

Priced at $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year, Apple Arcade is a subscription-based service that provides access to a catalog of over 200 games across the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV, with additional titles added periodically.

Where does this claim come from? I won't profess to be an expert on Apple Arcade games, but absolutely some of them have those garbage ads in them, same as other freemium apps that aren't on Arcade.
If you can provide samples of any of these, I expect it'd make front-page news here on MacRumors, since that's one of the key defining features of Arcade (games with no ads, no microtransactions, everything for one monthly price).

For those with long memories, it was called Flappy Bird
Not sure if you're just trolling, but this game is completely different from and has nothing to do with Flappy Bird

The state of gaming on iOS is really disappointing. For 12 years I've believed that the iPhone had the potential to be the best gaming platform, bar none, but it seems like developers stopped trying a decade ago.

As an example, where's Undertale? That seems like an easy GOTY that would work pretty perfectly on a touch screen. Instead, I search for Undertale on the App Store and I see a clone of the final boss fight - a clear copyright violation that Apple should have rejected both for low quality and for the copyright issue.

Apple is probably responsible for all of this via the App Store. They accidentally built a store for scammers, and their only concern is maximizing profits by cutting expenses and doing shoddier reviews rather than actually fixing the store into something where legitimate developers would actually want to sell stuff.

I enjoyed the early days of iOS games like PvZ but lately I have lost interest. I’ve spent $3k on Switch games because the library is really great but I’m not willing to spend the $5/month for Apple Arcade.
