AIRHEART - Tales of broken Wings
Top Critic Average
Despite its shortcomings in the user experience field, Airheart offers a fun experience that's easy to drop into at any time. Once you're over the initial learning curves the game becomes a great casual game unlike anything else, with ever new exciting new heights to reach.
Airheart initially didn’t put flight to my fancy with what seemed like a boring, slow mechanic. Scratch a bit deeper though, and begin to get your teeth into the customising and tactical behaviour of your enemies, and there’s a surprisingly deep combat/farming game in there. I can’t guarantee it will hold up in the long term, especially having to essentially go from level one each time, but if you’re willing to perservere to reach those upper limits and beyond, then you can’t go wrong with Airheart.
Airheart is a touching, beautiful game that starts off excitedly but quickly loses it's momentum unless you enjoy excessive amounts of repetitive content.
Despite industry inundation of roguelite shooters, AIRHEART: Tales of Broken Wings offers a series of uncommon features accompanied by a remarkable grade of polish that should renew interest within those fatigued by the genre. I offer no apologies for the following pun, only for the cliché: Blindflug Studios’ offering here soars above the competition.
Airheart is worth checking out for twin-stick shooter fans that need a new fix, but otherwise, skip this flight.
Airheart takes a unique look on a roguelike game and handles unlike other twin-stick shooters. Generic storyline interjections aside the game crafts a nice looking world and keeps the challenge varied. I would recommend this for fans of the roguelike genre.
GREAT - Airheart delivers a reasonably balanced roguelike experience with a dieselpunk art style that looks great on the Nintendo Switch. Gameplay comes in the form of twin-stick arcade shooting & collecting, coupled with a trial & error crafting system that I found to be a bit annoying, but not enough to detract from the overall game. If you’re in the market for a thematically different roguelike, this game has a nicely structured game loop that delivers hours upon hours of fun.
Airheart is a nice looking that sounds amazing, but it's riddled with issues that may be too damaging for some. You can't unlock all achievements in the game. You may not the able to unlock your plane parts, every so often enemies are bugged and you cannot complete levels. It's nice, but you can't expect too much.
