Over dit spel

Welcome to the ancient North, once the cradle of culture and peace, but is now corrupted by magic and inhabited by nasty bandits sowing destruction in airships.


Choose to be a vicious Buccaneer or an infamous Viking and take a glider to the skies. Your goal is to drop enemy vessels and secure dominance of the ancient North. Fire cannons, help others, board enemy ships or be the captain – whatever it takes to get your enemies out of the way. The success, as well as the bitter defeat, is solely dependent on how well you co-operate with your crew mates.


Finding the right kind of battle strategy is not self-evident in the merciless winds and twisted magic of the North...

I don't think this game gets enough credit. It's unique, inspires team play, is kinda funny, and it's enjoyable. It's downfall is that it's entirely PvP and not enough people play it. Good fun, if there are enough players.

this game suffers from only a few problems
these problems are the lack of people. At the start when it was cheep there was alot of people but now there is none i only hope more people will eventually get this game.
problem 2. sence there is near to none servers. the NA servers have the more people but you suffer the lag.
problem 3 the price $15 for a game thats been out for over a year this is not good.
but there is good this game is 10/10 concepts with 10/10 ships and fights i felt as if i was captian killing people as a viking sailing the high winds (or sea's) this game if only it had more people playing it would be better i think the dev's should look at problems and fix them as this is a good gmae just needs more love

This game is really great, the concept is creative and the controls in-game feel smooth.
One of the bad things is that this game's player base... BARELY REACHES UP TO 26 PEOPLE!
The average amount of players you are ever going to see is somewhere around 20 to 30 people.
It's also really fun and the leveling system is good while the ''Victory and Defeat'' count is really fresh, not like most of the new games :
Example -
Wins - 20
Loses - 600 (Noob).
If it wasn't for the dead community I would recommend it even more!
Best way to play it is get some friends and invite them over to increase the player amount.
Now since the game is free, you have no excuse not to try it out.

I'm going to give this a recommendation, because excluding the fact that the community appears to be dead, it's a good game! It's very fun as a very unique multiplayer 'shooter' in a steampunk setting with cannons and several secondary weapons available at your disposal, in a game that requires teamwork to survive. It has good graphics, fun gameplay and simple and easy to navigate menus (including a well thought out in-game tutorial). If you can get this on sale and you have a bunch of friends to play it with, go for it! I wholeheartedly recommend this title, just please note that the community is currently dead, it certainly needs a revival or a group (which I'm sure exists) to schedule a play session for you to be likely to see another player online. So yes, the game itself is great, but the community is non-existant - buy at your own risk!

If your looking for a game where you pilot/fire cannons, rockets, and flamethrowers at your enemies from primitive blimps with your friends than this is the game for you. Sadly there arent very many people playing these days so AirBuccaneers only gets played when i have friends online playing it.

This game is alot of fun to play.
My first game was ♥♥♥♥, because I joined a server with 2 people in.
But then I found another server with people in it, and I had alot of fun playing.This game just needs more people.
The graphics are really good, too.

I recently discovered that AirBuccaneers went free to play so I gave it a try. I have got to say I love the idea. The concept of this game and the style is pretty darn great. You play as either vikings or Buccaneers and fight on blimp like airships with a variety of weapons. Overall its somewhat hard to describe. I like the idea and style a lot. I do have some negative input as well though. The combat, movement and mechanics are very clunky. It is very obvious this game has an indy feel. If you are not bothered by the rough around the edges gameplay this is a good game to try! I can only imagine the game that could be made from this idea if it was made "better" (ie. had a bigger budget or something.)

At this time You have to search for AirBuccaneers to find it is free to play, as it does not appear on the list of free games yet. Hopefully this will be fixed soon so more people will try the game!

This game is awesome, I really do enjoy playing this. Needs more players!
There is another this kind of game (can't recall the name) but I haven't liked it nearly as much as I like this one.
This is based on teamwork but you can go all alone and do lots of damage to enemy ships and capture them. Which brought to my mind that using swords is pretty hard, I don't yet know how it works but all other mechanisms (flying, shooting etc) works fine and it is lot of fun!

I'm a huge fan of this game, I've had hundreds of hours of fun out of it, but unfortunately it has some issues which result in it being worth less than the default steam price. Firstly the developers are not updating the game. There are numerous bugs and balance issues which could easily be fixed, but haven't been in the year and a half I've been playing. In addition, the playerbase has dwindled, probably because of the lack of developer interest. This is a multiplayer game and the bots just don't cut it. Finally, it has a very steep learning curve and has no tutorial, this means that, even if you do get a good game going with a few people, newbies tend to be left clueless and not knowing what to do.

Overall, I'd say wait for a sale and pick up a copy on the cheap. Anything under €5 is reasonable. If there's a strong game going, join in and try to pick it up. A good AirBuccs match is a week's worth of fun, but be prepared for the possibility that the game will die entirely.

this game is really great, I played it way back when it was just a mod for UT2004 and man was it awesome. never have I played a game where there was so much cooperation absolutely nessesary for victory. but its done in a way that for those of you that wish to feel alone and not take orders you dont have to yet you are still contributing to your team just being near them. I breifly tried this when I saw a standalone was FINALLY released some 10 years after I played it. unfortunetly the problem it had back then is the same on it has today. there arnt many people online to play with. im not sure why it doesnt catch on more I think its amazing, even down to the art style. IMO it needs a bigger publisher to get it out there and advertise it. I think that simply most people dont know what it is. If I had never played it back 10 years ago I most certainly would not of found it today. advertise this game and add more content, ships, stats, ext and this would be a real winner.
