Tiny Wings 2.0 has landed in the iTunes store this morning with two new gameplay modes — one of them multiplayer.

The game comes with some pretty sweet treats for Tiny Wings fans.

The first is that if you already have Tiny Wings for iPhone, rather than having to buy a new game, all you have to do is update your existing game. The HD version is a separate download, coming in at AU$2.99, but the iPhone version is still AU$0.99, and you pay nothing further if you've already purchased it.

As well as the Day Trip mode we know and love — where the aim is to get as far as you can within a timeframe — the game comes with two additional modes.

The first is a race mode, called Flight School, where you race a baby bird against three AI opponents across 15 levels, racing to get the biggest fish from Mama Bird — who just happens to be the bird from the original game.

The second mode is two-person split-screen multiplayer, where you race another player on some actually pretty tricky courses.

As far as sequels go, it really rounds out the Tiny Wings gameplay magnificently — and well done to app maker Andreas Illiger for opting to make it a free update for existing owners.
