A Little Turbulence is a retro-style game for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
Guide your cloud through the sky and absorb other clouds to increase your mass. Your mass determines if you can either destroy or get hurt by the birds, hand gliders, biplanes, jets, helicopters, balloons and other objects flying in the sky. Once your cloud reaches it's maximum mass you temporarily explode into Rage Mode!
Earn points, collect pickups, and try to survive for as long as you can!
App of the Day: "It's a side-scrolling, 8-bit charmer with a jaunty chip tune soundtrack, and it's all about getting bigger and then destroying things. I like it a lot." —Eurogamer.net

Ratings and Reviews
I recently became disillusioned with the genre of endless running/flying games which seem increasingly lackluster with each new release. Nevertheless, I was captivated by the pixel-art style of A Little Turbulence and decided to pick it up. The chiptune soundtrack is wonderful and the suggestion of flying over the earth is beautifully orchestrated. Although the game is very energetic at times, I find it both artful and relaxing. It has restored my faith in the endless runner genre by demonstrating that the experience of this type of game can be enjoyable in itself without the need to goad you on with endless upgrades and in-app purchases. I look forward to future work by this developer. Thank you for your efforts.
I'm glad I found this. :)
As a katamari fan who also likes this style of graphics, I think I can get some enjoyable hours out of this little gem. :)
You start as a tiny cloud. You can "eat" any other cloud you see right from the start, but you must try to avoid other kinds of objects that are bigger than you. Thankfully, red outlines make it easy to see what to avoid. If you hit things with red lines you get smaller; hit too many and it's game over. But "eat" clouds to try to grow bigger. I think the areas get harder as you go, with more big objects to avoid.
My 5 year old loves this game
I downloaded this game and really enjoyed the simplicity and fluid controls. Little did I know that my 5 year old would be the one hogging my phone to play it!
Can't recommend this game enough. Well done!
