AirBurst Review Posted at MacGamez
8:46 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

MacGamez, the newly revived site dedicated to covering gaming on the Mac, has posted a review of Airburst. This is the second title from Aaron Fothergill and the UK-based Strange Flavour and already looks to be a shareware hit. It has received a nearly perfect score on Macgamefiles' reviews so far, and MacGamez seems to concur that Airburst is a lot of fun. Here's a quick excerpt:

The first thing players need to do is get their usual shareware preconceptions out of their minds. It would be all too easy for people to write this title off as a flashy redundant arcade buzzkiller, or snuff it completely as "another tacky shareware hit-or-miss." Some might even decree it a foul, worthless title - solely due to the fact that neither Ambrosia nor Freeverse had any involvement in the game's development.

This, my friends, is a ghastly mistake.

Airburst mania is something that can't be stopped easily. Once it takes hold of you, you will be hooked for hours on end, with the battle cry of "just one more match" heard well into the evening.

Though they long for an internet multiplayer mode, the review is very positive of the title, which carries an amazingly inexpensive price of $5. Read through the review now if you're not convinced, or check out IMG's preview of Airburst posted last week. And be sure to download the demo now at Macgamefiles if you haven't already.
