    ‚òÜ STEAMBIRDS ‚òÜ
    The addictive, turn-based gameplay of Flash hit SteamBirds has arrived on the App Store! Rewrite history as you fight through more than 20 missions, using bombs, missiles and poison gas to bring down 8 different steam-powered enemy aircraft. 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 your progress between devices. SteamBirds for iOS also features new graphics, music, and touch controls from the creators of Canabalt!

    ‚òÜ NOTES ‚òÜ
    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.

    Unlike a lot of modern turn-based strategies, SteamBirds doesn't have a phone book thick system of statistics and rules to learn; just jump in and start shooting.

    Replay value is pretty good if you enjoy the slower pace of turn-based gameplay or if you have the patience to persevere until you can rack up 4 stars on each level.

    SteamBirds provides challenging strategic gameplay with a steampunk twist.

    Far more fun than it reasonably ought to be, Steambirds is the kind of game whistling was invented for.

    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.
