SkateBIRD Review – All Birds to Take Off Review

What happens when you instruct a bird with a gentle temperament to use a small skateboard? American Indie Studio Glass Bottom Games tried to solve this problem with their absurd sport simulator SkateBIRD. The convincingness of it can be seen in our short review.

We’ve been professional athletes racing on boards before. We’ve also been a mystery “no-nyms” and had a slender range of techniques. Cartoon characters scurry through the awe-inspiring worlds. However, we’ve never been skater-birds.

Being an ornamental bird is a somewhat unusual thing in itself. The plump body, and slim legs, are usually not appropriate for flat areas. However, we do have wings. Even though the birds in SkateBIRD aren’t flying, they can be given a great flap to make a better ollie.

SkateBIRD offers five parks, even though they’re parks, but rather places for those who love to fly and live the life of their Big Friend. The bedroom is he is one example. The ramps are built from cardboard boxes, and old magazines and pencils or juice boxes are an ideal spot to sit.

Despite the toys, the birdie is determined to learn, and she and her buddies gather on the ice, eager to share their skate experiences and assist with errands that only take less than a minute to complete.

The remainder of skating isn’t restricted in duration, and you’re allowed to look around to find hidden objects; however, to find the majority of them, as per the rules of the sport, you must become competent in your skater craft.

If, in the same way, things on the map were an essential requirement to earn the points needed to get through the game, It’s now just fun to add them to your collection of clothes, decks, and music.

As you could think, Finches aren’t that much of the game. However, they are adept at doing supports and twists and turns, maintaining balance, and even doing the simplest flip tricks. Nozgrebs, twists, and boardslides provide enough tools to allow you to enjoy a little enjoyment at your favourite game.

When the wings flap during flying, it will perform an aerial ollie. It’s our terminology; the term is “double leap.” Their light weight permits them, for instance, to utilize ventilation turbines as springboards or glide across wires!

What I enjoyed:

  • The game comes with a beautiful customisation system for customization. In addition to having many options for decorations in the default settings, you can discover more options if you take your time exploring the levels. For example, you can alter the accessories for your head, wear glasses and a scarf or an eagle around your neck, wear an apron to his back, put a belt pouch, swap the wheels and deck and, most importantly, select the carcass. In addition, there are winged parrots, wagtails, feathered wagtail, dwarf falcon, or oak-nosed cardinal. are a myriad of birds that are ornamental here.
  • The game’s creators like a more open play and thus let players adjust the difficulty level with excellent specificity through the settings. You are beginning with the accessibility of specific strategies that can be used, the chance that you’ll fall off your board, the difficulty of balancing, and the pace of play. If you’d like to, you can switch off balance entirely and just hang on the rails for as long as you’d like.
  • SkateBIRD has a fantastic soundtrack that the game’s developers have described as Lo-Fi Bird-Hop. The original Jazz-funk tune was composed by composer Nathan Madsen, but the game also has licensed tracks from the ska-punk group We Are The Union, rock group Grave Digger, Illicit Nature, and more.

What’s not to love:

  • The game features a poor camera that takes poor angles and then flies through the bird skate and hits walls, which reduces the view. Sometimes, it’s not sure which direction it’s heading in rare instances and can cause a massive shake.
  • The fonts are seriously messily designed. SkateBIRD includes Russian localization. However, the letters are expansive, frequently falling out of windows and overlaid or overlapping onto images they represent.
  • The graphics within the game could be more appealing. The birds themselves were painted nicely, as did the boards and certain objects; however, the vast backgrounds and the scenery are blurry evidently because of their unattractiveness. They could have been developed more carefully.

Is it worth taking a look at

If you’re passionate about skateboarding and have played through every single one of the projects in the game, then you might find SkateBIRD amusing. It’s an easy and simple indie game with a hint of humour and many cute feathered creatures. But don’t think of it as a real skateboarding simulator.
