You have always dreamed of flying - but your wings are tiny. Luckily the world is full of beautiful hills. Use the hills as jumps - slide down, flap your wings and fly! At least for a moment - until this annoying gravity brings you back down to earth. But the next hill is waiting for you already. Watch out for the night and fly as fast as you can. Otherwise flying will only be a dream once again.

Gamers on iPad can enjoy split-screen multiplayer, while iCloud support means your game progression will be synced between all of your devices.

Tiny Wings is an App Store classic and it's great to see it making an appearance in Apple Arcade. With no ads or in-app purchases, this is the kind of game you absolutely don't mind your kids playing. Just expect to struggle to make them stop at some point — and the same might go for yourself, too!
