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!

Not bad

10.02, 67 accidents. One medal: "better than jill."

This was like a darker, stormier, and more gothic version of "a crow in hell."

Controls didn't seem too bad to me, except that it would have been nice to be able to walk side to side when standing on the ground. That wouldn't have changed the gameplay much, it would just have made it seem a little more natural.

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.
