Our Vita videos of Rocketbirds...

When we were proposed to try Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, we must confess we were a bit wary. Put yourself in our shoes, we knew nothing about the game and let's face it, we judge it on its title. Fortunately, we decided to give it a shot and we haven't been disappointed at all. If you miss the old days of Flashback, Another World, or even Abe, then pay attention. The most striking things about this game are its artstyle, its cutscenes and the fantastic music of indie band New World Revolution. As for the rest, you'll get your share of gunplay, puzzles and rocketbird action of course. Our only grudge with the game is that it's so great that it's too short. But for €7.99 (we're not quite sure how uch it will cost in North America), you'd be a fool not to try.

+ 2D Run'N'Gun
+ comic look
+ Angry Birds parody
+ Flashback vibe
+ Jetpack
+ Shmup sequences
+ low price (not sure about the Vita version though)
- annoying voice work
- not as challenging as Flashback

@Korndog: Oh btw (almost forgot) there's a Flashback HD remake in the works. Hope they don't screw this up, but looks promising i'd say:

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX We're just witnessing a messy adjustment period where big publishers figure this GaaS stuff out. Just don't buy the stuff. That's how this whole system works. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @MrWhite: I think you're just flat out wrong. Consumers are reacting negatively to certain models and publishers react to consumers. (3 Hours ago)
