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!

Well. Whaddaya know.

I rate this game a 10 with good reason.

The game is basically about a poor pig that falls in a hole, and it can't get out. What happens next is inevitable evolution, despite common belief.

The game uses the old-school bit-style, and that gives it more flavor. The levels are just plainly genius, using your own abilities against you. (Walls and spikes and lava, oh my!) Warning, pig IS flammable - and wings are made of porcelain.

Addressing difficulty, that is an interesting topic. Some may say that this game is "too difficult". I concur. Fact is, this is pretty accurate for how difficult games USED to be "back in the good old days" of old-school games. And even then, this game is quite easier (with the whole, "no lives-limit" and "respawn on the same stage"). I would say, this game sets the correct par for all games on Newgrounds to strive for - "difficult", but you learn.

This game uses simplicity as something to make it exceptional. I give the game a perfect "10" (out of 10), and I recommend everyone to play this game (just as long as they are able to get past the first few stages).

Great game

nintendoninja10, you need to learn to tolerate games that youaren't very good at.

I get the feeling that you're not very good at many games at all.

It's not a good attitude to give such a low score on a review just because you suck at a game.

Sure, it's hard but it's possible, I completed it in 16 minutes and 200 deaths.

I swore a lot but at least I didn't quit.

Anyway, great game. Faved. 5/5. 10/10.
