Bird Game + - Launch Trailer
In concept, Bird Game + seems like a pleasant spin on the traditional on-rails genre. In execution, Bird Game +misses the mark in nearly every way from its surprising lack of mechanical polish to its shallow design. While its aesthetic and genuinely enjoyable boss fights are undeniable highlights, they're nowhere near potent enough to outweigh the game's fundamental issues.
Bird Game + looks unique and its art style stands out but it doesn't quite do everything the way it should. The overall experience is too short, the difficulty level gets frustrating too quickly and while the art style is worth praising, it can interfere with the gameplay at some points. Overall, Bird Game + will disappoint the players who pick it up, with emphasis on fans of the fly'em up style.

Despite looking moderately eye-catching in screenshots, Bird Game + ultimately proves to be the game that its title suggests: a bland and frustrating experience in search of an identity. The concept has potential, but a lack of polish and focus means it never really leaves the ground.
