Tiny Wings 2.0 is now available on the New Zealand App Store, and is currently making its way around the world, to be available here in PDT around midnight or so. We heard about the game last week, but it turns out it’s not a full game — it’s just an update to the incredibly popular iOS app, and it’s a free update at that, available for download for anyone who’s already bought the first version.

The update brings iPad support, which a lot of Tiny Wings players will surely appreciate. There’s also a new mode called Flight School, which features four different Tiny Wings birds flying across the landscape, trying to reach a goal first. And there’s also a two-player same screen multiplayer mode, where two players touch on either side of the same screen.

Creator Andreas Illiger agrees he probably could have released the update as a second app, but he says he instead wanted to give it away for free, “as a big thank you to all my fans for changing my life.” That’s a nice sentiment. The Tiny Wings update, version 2.0, should be available on the App Store near you soon.

Tiny Wings update tonight brings iPad support, new modes originally appeared on TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Wed, 11 Jul 2012 16:00:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
