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.
