App Giveaway: LostWinds for iPhone and iPad


Looks great. I particularly like how simple the controls look. I almost always prefer the one touch controls instead of the onscreen "game pad" that so many games have.

Heard great buzz around this new game. Haven't tried the Wii version but would love to try it in iOS.
Thanks for the giveaway, TiPb! :)

It's almost like I'm playing a platformer on a console here -- the graphics are superb! I love the control mechanism too.. Very intuitive stuff. I think more games (platformers, at least) would do well in adopting controls like this given how fluid the gameplay is. Love it! Good stuff :)

This looks absolutely gorgeous! You always bring our attention to those special games - thanks.

So many apps have people saying "this is how it should be done!" but it's rare for an app to actually deliver (For me anyway). I'd like to try this, but at $3.99 I don't think I would. Free? Definitely.

I have been looking forward to this game's release, and I'd love to win a copy! Thanks for another awesome giveaway.

Sega had Sonic, Nintendo had Mario. Been looking for the iPhone's platform game for a while. It sounds like Toku might fit the bill. Would love to win a copy!

Sign me up for chance to win a free copy of this game. It looks fantastic. I'm always worried about the controls with these type of games, but they look very solid in the video.

First thought it was a reference to farting. But I'd love to have a copy of Lost Winds - looks amazing!

Wow, I just saw the trailer like a week ago. Didn't expect to be released so soon. Kudos.

Sees fun for the whole family :-)
Not too scary for the very young ones.
Ill keep my fingers crossed to get a gift from TiPb :)
