What's that on the ceiling? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Yes AND no

Game Name: Gravity Duck | Developer: Ravenous Games | Publisher: Ravenous Games | Format: iPhone, iPad | Genre: Arcade, Platform
Gravity Duck is the latest pixel-art platformer to 'emerge' from the prolific digital loins of indie developer Ravenous Games.
As Gravity Duck's title would suggest, you have to guide a semi-aquatic bird through a series of perilous levels in the newest member of Ravenous's gaming flock.
Rather than make the duck jump or fly, however, you assume control over the gravity of each environment. This means that your beaked protagonist can clamber up walls and even stroll across the ceiling (if you desire).
If you've played any of the games in Ravenous Games's iOS portfolio - League of Evil or Infestor, for example - before, then you'll feel right at home with Gravity Duck's low-fi visuals and right-angled design philosophy.
The developer's trademark arrow pits and spiked blocks also make a return in Gravity Duck, with a few creepy crawly enemies thrown in for good measure.
Gravity Duck features three different environments and 100 (no doubt tricky) levels. Oh, and it will set two webbed feet on the App Store next Thursday. Yep, February 28th.
