Strange Flavour Launches AirBurst
12:06 PM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Strange Flavour, the amazing shareware team behind the hit side-scroller Bushfire, has announced the official release of their next title. Known as Airburst, this game in inspired by the gameplay of the old-school arcade game Warlords yet takes it to a whole new level.

Here's an excerpt from the press release:

Strange Flavour would like to announce the release of their latest (and
second this year) Mac only game Airburst!

Airburst is an absolutely bonkers game for 1-4 players set 30,000 feet
above the ground. Players float around on rings of balloons and try to
avoid being hit by razor sharp balls while attempting to burst other
players balloons.

Airburst has got lots of power ups, tons of nice eye candy, manic
action, twelve different game types (Including Levels, Deathmatch, Catch
the Frog, Russian Grenade Roulette and Football) and a mere 60 million
possible levels.

Oh, and being Strangeware, Airburst is only 2 or $5 to register.

For more information on the game itself, be sure to check out IMG's recent preview of the game in our Previews section.

Airburst is currently available for download at the Strange Flavour site. It runs on both OS 8.6+ (with CarbonLib) and OS X. Registration for the software is a small $5, payable online or via regular mail, which is more than reasonable considering the quality of this title. Strange Flavour itself is made up of only 2 people - Adam and Aaron Fothergill, which makes the depth and plosh of there titles all the more remarkable -- make sure to send in those shareware fees and support them!
