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!

This was my favorite flash game as a child - I remember playing on the family computer & being determined to finish. Returning as an adult is a great joy, thank you for making this game.

pigs don't fly you liar

I think my favorite part of this game is how when if you mess up one of the pig's wings, then it falls off into level oblivion X'D

EDIT: There weren't any pig sound effects until about halfway through. Second, I don't have proof but it said it took ~60 min for me to clear first round story mode and counted my accidents at 750+ when it was more like ~20-25min and ~200 accidnets soooooo . . . yeah.

Quick rundown in 2020 from your favorite Dead Head:

When Pigs Fly really is a gem of a game. It's essentially a mix between Balloon Fight and those games where you have to navigate a metal bar through a narrow corridor without touching the sides. And its all in this beautiful pixel art package. There are 50+ screens to navigate through which start fairly easy but will make you want to take a sledgehammer to your entire computing system.

I guess this is a good time to touch on the medals. Fuck man he really made these tough to get. Like probably some of the toughest to get on Newgrounds. Getting through the game (which is a task on its own) net you a medal worth FIVE POINTS. Then you have to go through the entire game again but backwards for TEN POINTS. Then you have to do it In under 4 minutes and without dying. Lol yeah good luck. There's a reason less than 200 people have been able to do a perfect run.

10/10 for the game, 1/10 for my dread to eventually come back and try to get these fricking medals.

Great Game, Great Message 10/10
