Take yourself back to 1848 in Aviary Attorney: Definitive Edition. Paris is on the brink of yet another revolution, and the prisons are overflowing with guilty and innocent alike. One bird stands for justice amid society's chaos. Play the role of Monsieur Jayjay Falcon, a bird of prey with a good heart and questionable lawyering expertise. Join him and his witty apprentice, Sparrowson, as the two take on clients, interview witnesses, collect evidence and deliver justice to the guilty. With art by 19th-century caricaturist J. J. Grandville and music by legendary romantic-era composer Camille Saint-Saëns, this game promises to be a ~swanderful~ experience. FEATURES: - Definitive edition graphics. These beaks have never looked so sharp! - Four chapters of talon-biting intrigue and suspense. - Three fully fleshed-out endings. Decisions have consequences! - Dozens of colourful characters to meet, interview, and bribe. - Did I say bribe? I meant persuade. - Real-life landmarks. Knock on the doors of Notre-Dame! Loot the Louvre! - Optional dyslexic font. No one has to miss out! - Earn medals to show everyone you're the fanciest bird around. - Visit the art gallery and see the characters in their natural habitats. - Try the jukebox! Listen to a romantic era soundtrack that spans from Hector Berlioz to Claude Debussy. - More bird puns than you can shake a feather at.

Aviary Attorney is well worth picking up, just so you can take your legal cases on the move and continue your cross-examination in handheld mode.

Aviary Attorney has it all – well-written characters, a great sense of humour, compact but digestible cases, and a simple gameplay loop wrapped in a striking artistic style. Its willingness to let players fail, and feel the consequences of their shoddy investigating, is to be commended and is what separates Aviary Attorney from its contemporaries. It can be a little bit simple and straightforward, however, and that may leave some feeling disappointed.

Aviary Attorney: Definitive Edition is very replayable, with many branching dialogue chains and three different endings. Its 19th-century world and characters are too charming to not want to see again.
