A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
A simple story with words and illustrations explains how to play. The controls take some time to get used to, but they work fine. Games are scored, and high scores can be tracked using Game Center. However, there is not a wide variation in the difficulty of the game.
Violence & Scariness
When Penelope runs into an alligator, the alligator opens his jaws and she disappears.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that When Pigs Fly is a basic game in the style of Tiny Wings. A pig who builds herself wings so she can fly slides along hillsides eating gumdrops or, with accurately-timed taps from the player, flying into the air to avoid alligators. Unlike similar games like Mighty Fin, there is not much variety between levels. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.
Is It Any Good?
WHEN PIGS FLY, a very basic tap-to-jump game, is a nice introduction to the Tiny Wings genre, but don't expect any bells or whistles. Penelope gobbles up gumdrops (and gets gobbled by alligators) while the seasons change, but the difficulty doesn't.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
