This is the first game I've bought on Desura, and it's more than worth the $6 I paid for it. It's a pretty straight-forward puzzle game with a funny concept that never takes itself too seriously, but never tries to dumb the game down either. I found myself losing track of time while playing, trying to figure out how to make the birds perfectly get the medals and coins, all with the little tools they provide. The music is good, but repetitive, so a little variation would help improve the game. The graphics are pretty decent; not mind-blowing, but much better than what a lot of indie developers out there are offering now.
On a side note, after downloading and installing the game I initially had trouble launching it, but shortly after posting a note on the game's forum, a developer promised to have a patch up quickly, and within a few hours I was able to easily play the game. The developers of this game obviously care about the players, so I'll keep coming back to them in the future.
This game shows that Linux gamers are definitely not stuck with bottom-of-the-barrel bargain games, but instead are offered good quality, fun games at a more than reasonable price.
I hope that didn't sound too much like a commercial. I just really like this game and was surprised by how good it actually was.
What can i say, the game has its annoying moments and bugs, like any game ive ever played, but ive put more hours into this than any other ive played too. Been gaming since 92 and counting.
It scratches all the right itches, for me at least, and being part of its development is fun and keeps it fresh -> them dar weekly updates ;)
Theres usualy quik hotfixes for any problems encountered by the growing community and i find lots of interesting discussions in the forums, good help and generally a kind and welcoming community at that, ofc if you only play for an hour and come spam threads about what you dont understand, youll be made aware of that not being appreciated, cluttering the forum, like any other forum would, if you got questions, search the wiki, search the forum for answers, make a thread in guides and help and then wait more than 5 minutes for an answer, in that order :)be aware that the ppl responding might be in a different timezone or dont know the answer themselves ;) The thing i like the most however, is how much the developer keeps up on the "suggestions" subforum and all of its threads, taking in lots of good stuff thought up by the community and implementing it in the game if it fits with hes overall goal for the game.
Its a full package, in alpha, getting fuller? xD never thought id say that.
Ofc if youre a graphics fiend, this probably isnt for you :)
