"Fun & challenging Fun game. Easy to play since the little bird moves when you shift your phone from side to side." -SurroKim
"Very cute! Little Birds is an ideal game for when you have a few minutes to kill. It's easy to learn, starts off easy but gets challenging enough to make you want to play another level or three.

Little Bird is available on iTunes for FREE for a limited time. The game was created by Dr. Robert Belluso who could not resist his creative longings and arcade gaming background and devoted his spare time to developing the Little Bird gaming app.
Little Bird combines current technology, exotic landscapes, objects, and contraptions, allowing the player to interact in novel ways that have not been seen before in an iPhone game. Little Bird brings the simple idea of a real skill arcade game to the next level, offering a fun, challenging, and unique experience.
Unlike games that rely on tapping, sliding or swiping, Little Bird takes advantage of the latest iPhone technology. The user tilts the device to the right or left, using gravity and speed to build momentum to get through each level.
In no time the gamer is rolling, jumping, bouncing, flying through the air, swinging in baskets, riding in carts, and shooting out of cannons while avoiding obstacles, booby traps and enemies to help Little Bird collect coins along the path to safety.
"Little Bird brings the simple idea of a real skill arcade game, from which the concept was born, to the next level," explains Dr. Belluso, "offering a fun, challenging and unique experience that will keep gamers coming back for more. Little Bird is a fun, gravity driven novel game played with challenging physics-based obstacle courses."
Little Bird is a universal app available on all devices that combines accelerometer and gyroscope gaming technologies. It features 20 unique levels with future levels coming and frequent updates.
Little Bird is rated 4+ (suitable for ages 4 and older). Gamers who enjoy Angry Birds, Feed That Dragon, Where's My Water, Hank Hazard, Fruit Ninja, Cut the Rope and Bike Baron will very much feel at home with Little Bird.

He created Little Bird to replicate the skills of playing real arcade-style games as no tapping, sliding or swiping motions are used.
