    Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is a blast to play. A title with a silly premise, satisfying action, plenty of content (15 solo chapters and 10 co-op) and a first rate game presentation is hard not to cluck about.

Been there, done that. Good graphics and sound. A block of man-chicken isn't the most graceful character for this type of game. Its perfectly playable and graphically sound, but something in the back of your mind wants you to stop playing. Heed the call, its a little boring. Full Review »

At first, I thought this was just an average air fighting game (per the PSN preview). But I decided to look into it and discovered that Rocketbirds HBC is a 2D adventure game. It reminds me of Flashback, which blew my mind back in the day, but with a simpler approach. Yes, there's actually the air fighting part, but this is just to fill in some gaps. The main heart of the game let us control a chicken-soldier in a very traditional 2D platforming way (like the old Prince of Persia, as well). This is currently under discount at the PSN and it turned out to be a great surprise. Nice graphics, easy to pick gameplay and even a couple of surprises in the way. Great indie game. Full Review »
