    If you’re looking for a rogue-like that has a lot of charm and stands out from the crowd, you can’t go wrong with Airheart: Tales of Broken Wings.

    A clever twin-stick shooter with a roguelike twist and impressively deep customisation. [Issue#333, p.61]

    Airheart will appeal to those who enjoy learning a game’s systems by trial and error. The bizarre-sounding concept of skyfishing is ridiculous when first seen, but quickly feels almost natural.

    It’s completely up to the players whether they want to invest in Amelia’s daily chore or not. Maybe the game should be perceived as something of a snack, taking it for a spin once in a while. After all, each flight is as short as you want it to be. Give it enough time and maybe one day you’ll catch the mythical sky whale. In doing so, Airheart tries to teach it’s not the goal that is the most important but rather the everyday life and work you make around while going for it.

    Probably the only sky pirate fishing twin stick shooter you'll ever play. Airheart offers an interesting scenario and a reasonably good, but not remarkable, game.

    Airheart presents an interesting idea with hints of brilliance, but fails to deliver a game with staying power. Whilst the upgrade system is satisfying, it’s let down by repetitive gameplay and UI issues that get in the way even when playing with the endearing crafting system.

    I wanted to like Airheart. The concept of a roguelike with air combat, exploring worlds, and creating my own plane is a good one. Unfortunately, buggy game mechanics, lackluster crafting and the awful grind for money shoots this little ship out of the sky.

Experimenting with different weapons and mechanics and learning what to avoid and what to collect is a fun challenge. Could be a little longer with harder bosses, however flying around just shooting enemies and admiring beautiful sights is what this game is about (also photo-mode is awesome). If you like to spend time experimenting with the game then it's totally worth it! Expand

    The world feels quite lively with all those different flying (swimming?) things among the sky. Sometimes I just watch how the police fights against the pirates to defend the fisher-planes.

    the game looks wonderful as soon as you die you release its going to be tough grinding to make yourself a better plane as the pirates takethe game looks wonderful as soon as you die you release its going to be tough grinding to make yourself a better plane as the pirates take you down with ease
    sure the crafting is fun but its not really explained well in fact I had to learn earn and learn again and again after a while it can get repetitive but its a flying game so it will and that's fine I like flying games
    so if you like futuristic games hunting flying fish battling pirates and don't mind being attacked every time you move up to the cooler levels then this is the game for you...personally I need more flying time

Poor storyline, odd graphics and a very, VERY repetitive concept in my opinion. Bad ratio price/content. Expand
