    The King's Bird is another challenging platformer but the ability to fly adds a twist that makes it stand out from other games in the genre. The presentation is superb and although tough, the difficulty curve is pitched well for those willing to learn how to master its mechanics.

    I really enjoyed this game but its repetition and lack of communication with the player ultimately frustrated me personally. That said, it is so gorgeous to look at and control I would play it again. Crazy huh?

    There are moments in The King’s Bird where it’s easy to lose yourself in the gameplay and striking visuals. Rocketing around colourful stages and indulging in the serene soundtrack is fun, but frustrating puzzle mechanics and little variance in the gameplay taint the experience.

    Like Icaros, The King’s Bird has too much self-confidence and flies too close to the sun. There simply isn’t enough going on for the game to make its wax wings withstand the heat. For a far superior experience in the same genre, go for Celeste. In fact, why haven’t you already? It’s hard but it constantly rewards your efforts.

    I wanted more of what The King’s Bird was, and less of what it became.

    The standout features of the King's Bird are its audiovisual qualities and the way in which the story is told but after a strong opening, the game crumbles under its own weight because the puzzles are repetitive and the level design is too simplistic. The game could have been far better than it turned out to be and that is a shame.
