LUFTRAUSERS does everything a modern arcade game should and then some. 1

Vlambeer’s track record is a remarkable one. The self-styled two-man arcade game developer for the modern era continues to surprise with simple games that wring every ounce of depth out of a single idea. From Super Crate Box to Ridiculous Fishing to the still-evolving Nuclear Throne, Vlambeer has proven themselves time and time again to be masters of the nebulous term: “feel.” Their games “feel” incredible, and their latest release: LUFTRAUSERS plays better than any...

An arcade shooter that rises high above it's flaws. 0

Having played Luftrausers for 31 hours i can say i got my money's worth.The game began life as a simple gravitational flight style arcade shooter and the retail version expands on that with a custom combination system that will have you swapping weapons, chassis , and engines to find new strategies and establish favorites for your personal play style.Lauftrausers' campaign is a collection of missions which are simply achievements attached to to the individual parts you select to build your craft...

Luftrausers is a game that comes at you initially with more style than substance. After a quick cutscene introduction and menu navigation, a press of the d-pad sends you into a desaturated, sepia-toned view of World War II. The text "Original" appears on the bottom of the screen, and the filthiest riff begins to play through the Vita's speakers (or your headphones). Suddenly, you're being attacked from the sky as well as beneath you, in the sea. Hover too close to the water and your engine ma...

As Bland As Its Colour Scheme 0

For me, LUFTRAUSERS is a game that exemplifies the current 'indie craze' of being lauded for artistic style in place of actual content. In a way it's a sign of change (and in a good way at that) that these types of games are getting main stream recognition, but in another lifetime it feels like LUFTRAUSERS would have just been a flash game, and would have been free.LUFTRAUSERS gimmick is its sepia hued. That’s basically it. Though you can unlock different hues, I never played with them, th...
