SteamBirds, from the makers of Canabalt, is fun for a time, but doesn't do enough to earn a spot with the App Store elite.
App Description*** UPDATE - v1.3 ***
We've recently uncovered new information from the secret war files! 9 new missions, 3 new planes, a new weapon, and even a few bug fixes.
*** 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.
