When Pigs Fly is a game about teaching yourself to fly. It's not easy! Those big, feathery wings will help you take to the air, but they're also delicate. Bump into the wall and feathers will fly! You'll have to steer through this trecherous cavern if you want to see the sky again.

CONTROLS
The SPACEBAR, SHIFT or Z all work.
Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrows to steer while off the ground.
The M key mutes the game. The S key just turns off the squealing.
If you quit in the middle of the game your place will be saved! Don't worry.

Edmund McMillen really helped this game to take flight. And Tom Fulp was amazing enough to ensure it stayed there. Thanks!

Very wierd design choices...

It's a lovely game, but there were some bits I feel could've been improved on. Firstly, the wings. When the pig hits a wall and his wing gets flubbed up, why is that instant death? Does it suddenly stumble into Mario death land? What? I think it'd be much better if the pig were to simply fall, landing on whatever's underneath. Be it spikes, lava, or more importantly, SAFE FRIGGIN' GROUND.
Secondly, do wings equal broken legs? Why can't this pig just WALK? He's shown doing it in the opening cinematic, so what's the deal?
There are also some minor hit detection problems, but those only meant I got to die SOONER so no big deal.

The sound renewed my vengeful love of bacon, but that's what the volume knob is for, so I won't knock it. The music was lovely, however. Very fitting.

All in all, it's nice. It's not what I'd call a nice game, but the effort and work put into it shows. It just needs a few tweaks.

Wtf.

It's a good game, I thought it was fun... But the control is absolutely retarded. You hit the spacebar, and FWOOSH the pig goes fucking flying, toward the 3 pixel gap you're supposed to get through, as you're smashing your arrow keys to no avail, as the pig doesn't seem to give a fuck that he's hurtling towards a wall. The pig takes your inputs more as quaint ideas, as opposed to commands. Don't get me wrong, it's nice to have a challenge, but this was just like... The fucking Ninja Gaiden of flash games.
