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!

When Pigs Fly..

..I'll beat this game without dying. I'd like to shake the person's hand who can beat this game without dying. Perhaps, it was just a little too challenging. Not challenging in the fact that it's unbeatable, but it certainly is repetitive; with the annoying pig noises, waiting for the pig to respawn, bland level design, and stupid walls. The classic platformer feel it has is definitely a plus. I just would recommend maybe toning down the difficulty and maybe making the pig's wings immune to walls.

Great game. Really made me nostalgic.

Just going to address the points Sean9000 made.

Graphics are pixels. More or less 8-bit. If you remember playing any of the 8-bit games, you'd remember how painfully hard they got at times. This game continues that tradition. No power ups, no special items, just determination and teeth-grinding hair-width's dodging. What does a pig do? It squeals. Live with it.

If you were to fall on spikes and lava, you'd die too. That's reasonable. This is a pig with wings. If you hit a wall with your wing, you get thrown off-balance. You've seen those birds that fly into the glass at work. It happens.
When you hit your head on the roof of your car when you get out, you bring your head down, right? Your head "shoots down," correct?

Next time use some common sense when reviewing a game like this.

What really sold this game for me was the music that went along with it. Reminded me of Harvest Moon, really. I do agree with OwnzAlot also. Indeed epic.

Great game, right to the end.

Not very good.

The graphics were bland, and I didn't like the sounds that the pig made. A high-pitched squealy noise is going to piss you of after the 700th time.

I didn't like how this turned everything into an enemy. The walls, spikes, and lava killed you. Take away the wall-kill and it would be better. I noticed that the pig was SHOT down when he hit the roof, and it ruined a few levels that way.

If you think making a game thats here JUST to be hard and annoying will get high ratings, then you are VERY stupid.
