Weekly iPhone apps selection: games with cute birds

This week's selection of cute bird games will have your fingers clawing at the screen. Five games to make you twitter with excitement.

Tiny Wings
This cute little bird has great dreams of flying off into the distance, but his little wings are too tiny to carry him up, up and away. Instead, Tiny Wings slides his (or her) way to greatness by launching himself off big hills and propelling himself down big gullies while gobbling up glowing orbs and speed boosters. This beautifully designed game changes every time you play it thanks to "procedural generated graphics."

Egg vs. Chicken
Egg vs. Chicken is a new addition in the app store and is fast becoming a favorite with gaming fans. This addictive game cracks open the time-old question of which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Talking Larry the Bird
Larry the Bird is a talking, whistling bird that will imitate your every word. Play the built-in piano and your bird friend will whistle the tune. If he misbehaves you can send in a bolt of lighting to strike him down, if he is good you can feed him some seeds. Users can record a video of Larry saying silly things, then save it to their library or send it to their friends.
