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.

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.

When Pigs Fly is an Auntie Pixelante game!

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

It would be good to be able to quit to the menu without reloading the page.

This is the most frustrating game I ever played and won't be coming back. Seriously, it's impossible to navigate one level and you can't withoug dieing two hundred times. You can't even hit one damn thing. Even when you slightly touch something you die. This game is so stupid.

I AM NEVER PLAYING THIS STUPID GAME EVAR AGAIN!!!!!1!!111!!1! Is what I said when I first played this game a while back, but sure enough, I was on again the next day... While it was one of the most infuriating experiences I've ever had while playing a video game on my first play-through, something keeps drawing me back :)

The best thing, in my opinion, about this game was the feeling of accomplishment when I finally finished it. I'm always a fan of pixel games, and the music suits the game. Looking back, I have to admit, I also enjoy how angry I got while playing. The sound effects complement the annoying atmosphere and they also suit death nicely by blaring a maddening WHEE every time you die, adding to overall frustration. I don't mean for this to sound like a bad thing, as I've said, I enjoy how angry I got.

The different modes also added a nice touch, notably the backwards game, which always guarantees at least two play-throughs whenever I play. Finally, I enjoy the overall simplicity of the game. Three buttons, get from here to there, oh, and don't touch those. Love it.

As much as I hate to admit it, there isn't really anything I dislike about the game at this point, if you decide to make another, I'll definitely be there, and please don't make it any easier :)

My latest play-through for those of you who are interested: Time - 4.05 / Accidents - 12 :) so don't complain about the game being impossible, just keep playing!
