*** PRAISE ***
"...SteamBirds lies in wait to rob you of your Monday morning." -- Penny Arcade
"...as SteamBirds conclusively proves, it's the whole nine yards of awesome." -- JayIsGames
"Steambirds offers up a tremendous turn-based experience that keeps the action coming and challenge exceptional." -- GameZebo
*** STEAMBIRDS ***
The addictive, turn-based gameplay of Flash hit SteamBirds (created by Radial Games and Spry Fox) has arrived on the App Store! Rewrite history as you fight through more than 30 missions, using bombs, missiles, poison gas and 5 different aircraft to bring down 8 different steam-powered enemy planes. Plan your strategy, input your orders, and build up your combo to crush the enemy! Available for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, SteamBirds lets you automatically share (via some of that "cloud" magic) your progress between devices. SteamBirds for iOS also features new graphics, music, and touch controls from the creators of Canabalt!
*** NOTES ***
iPhone3GS, iPhone4, third- and fourth-generation iPods, and the iPad will feature the smoothest animations and the most special effects. The game runs fine on older devices, it just won't look quite as spectacular.
Ratings and Reviews
Great game, huge problem
First of all, I would like to say how much I enjoy this game. It is a great game, and it requires strategy and quick thinking. However, I cannot recommend it. I have found a bug that whenever I use bombs ( you first get them around midway through the game ) the whole game crashes. And since this is an older game, it is most likely not going to receive and update. If by a miracle it does, I highly recommend this. But at the stage it is at, I do not recommend this.
As a fighter pilot I'm all thumbs.
I have played the Steambirds games for hours on the PC. I was skeptical of the iPhone version as I've only recently sucked it up and made the leap to the smarmy world of smartphones. I was worried for nothing. The game remains solid, and the controls are intuitive and even my fat fingers make quick work of the dogs I'm fighting. Great game.
Fun but glitchy
Love this game! I have spent a lot of extra time playing this strategy game and the missions are all cool... Only problem is the app crashes.
I play this on my iPhone 6S (Newest iphone out right now when I'm writing this) but on the 11 or 12 mission as soon as I kill this one plane, the app crashes and doesn't save the progress.
