Hammerfight is about 2D battles of flying machines equipped with various slashing, piercing and blunt weaponry.

A unique combat system is based on realistic physics simulation, and it ties the movements of the rider to the movements of your mouse, as you wave the mouse, your rider swings his warhammer, smashing the foe into the wall! This creates an unequaled feel of the real strike, a feel of the mass of the weapon in your hands.

Simulated physics and direct mouse control creates a huge variety of possible battle techniques and an unlimited field for perfecting one's fighting skill.

Why is the HUD constantly so big? And those hanging things most of the time on the middle of the top of the screen? They block ennemies or yourself from view...

A shame the game doesn't support any decent resolution to improve visibility of fights, when most of fights take place in very small areas, and you get thrown behind the HUD... Very annoying.

Such a good gameplay mechanic, but such an annoying and frustrating game.

The game development was started around 2007 in deep Russian woods, this is why there is no any HD resolutions. :) And remember, its Indie. Only 1 programmer / gamedesigner / artist and its the same person. Not everything can be accomplish even by 1 dedicated person. :) Stay tuned for next game from same author!

Brilliant physics game so long as you edit the mouse sensitivity so you dont destroy everything on your desk in desperate wild swings.
8/10

The game is extremely awesome! It's a shame it doesn't have (online)multiplayer as this could be even more perfect playing with friends. Still it's a clear 9/10

Once you made it through your first take on the campaign, the second take is gonna go far more smoother.
I dont know for you, but the flail are the best weapon against everything.

This game is a secret Russian KGB plot to drive all Western gamers mad.
Do not play, unless you have a spare mouse!

Don't get me wrong though, it's lots of fun, especially on levels that don't take 50 tries to complete.

Difficult, but tactically satisfying physics based smasher. Hammerfall has you flying a wooden box, chained to a variety of weaponry of various weights. The key here is the physics. Momentum, inertia and mechanics are all properly represented which makes the game amazingly difficult, since your craft is so light. The sounds and 2D visuals are perfectly appropriate for the eastern feel of the game, and the connection of the various weaponry with metal or squishy enemies is oh-so satisfying. One early…
