PixWing is a game about planes that you simply must play if you like well-made games. As is evident from the name, the game is a pixelated take on what flying through the skies over exotic locations would be like. The game has a vibrant design which will completely draw you in with its detail. There are four locations that you can fly in, including a volcano and an icy land. The developers didn’t stop there with the detailing and the planes that you can fly are manned by a variety of colourful creatures, including a few woodland animals. If you are in the mood for medieval style adventure, you can also fly as a dragon.
You can control the game using an onscreen joystick or gyroscopic controls instead. The gyroscopic controls are recommended if you have enough space to move around when you play the game. By default, the gyroscope requires you to really move with the plane, resulting in you getting a bit of workout when you are playing. If you really love being fit, the game also displays a counter for the calories you burned playing it and then you could justify it being a part of your workout regime. However, your gym instructor may not take too kindly to the fact that you have replaced weight training with flying as a pixelated squirrel in PixWings for your training sessions.
PixWing has a number of levels in each landscape but it also has a free roam mode for each. In the latter, you can glide peacefully without any consequences and drown out the noise of deadlines, appointments and meetings. However, you can still crash in the free roam mode which might bring you harshly back to reality.
The game is like the child of Crossy Roads and a staid flying simulator, which just means that you need to install it and play it as soon as possible!
