5 / 10

The lovely aesthetics and graceful movement in A King's Bird are undercut by a too steep difficulty and imprecise controls.

As N++, Super Meat Boy and other games alike, The King's Bird focuses on control and gameplay over story. Gain "momentum" and use it to glide and rush through the levels it's the key to complete the game and conquer the online rankings. It's a challenging experiencie, f you're the kind of player that loves speedrunning gaming.

When things are going well, The King's Bird is a wonderful and fluid experience. Soaring across gaps, leaping up walls and making pixel perfect landings provides a sense of joy and empowerment that is rare indeed. Overall the controls are intuitive and responsive, with the game working with you to complete its levels, but every once in a while, certain mechanics felt a little off.

The King's Bird blends a beautiful design with superb and fluid mechanics to get a platformer that is just wonderful. A mix of parkour and aerial momentums that will show an amazing exhibition of movement and colors.
