Like shooting at birds? This is a great game to relieve a lot of stress. Shooting at bird was never so satisfying as it is in this game. The birds come at you and all you need to do is avoid conflicts on the ground and shoot at every bird you see. It has a funny revenge story against the birds. The controls are easy that anyone should be able to pick this up. Its a great game if you have a sense of humor and want to shoot some birds then get this game.

How does this have so many positive reviews?? Its just plain awful. Its even more shallow and reptitive than the videos would suggest. There are easily hundreds of free flash games that are very similar to this but infinitely better all over the internet.

After three levels you can pretty much buy the mini gun. Plain sailing through the ten levels after that.
A fun game to start and finish on my lunch break, but really seems like this is better off as something free on one of those flash media websites.
Satisfying to blast huge endless fields of birds in the three 10s bonus levels, but too short a rush. Should be a survival mode in it.
If it's on sale for less than half a dollar, go for it, otherwise FOG.com it.

Almost every game I have ever bought and enjoyed on Steam seems to get some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ or other complaining that it's "too short" and/or "too easy". Well, this game is pretty much BOTH. It's also $1.99, LESS if you buy it on sale, so what the ♥♥♥♥ are you expecting for your hard-earned pittance? If video games were sex workers, this would be a twenty-dollar street urchin with no teeth and breath far worse than your dog's after he's finished licking himself clean, but hey...you're still satisfied afterwards, and can go home to your wife with only the faintest twinge of guilt, since it was all so fleeting and meaningless anyway.

Not quite as inspired as the similarly-themed Culling Of The Cows, and definitely not a game which is liable to please any of you hard-core "shmuppers" out there...but for the rest of us cretins with at least some semblance of a sense of humour, this is more-than-adequately amusing stuff guaranteed to keep you off the streets for at least the hour it took even ME to finish it (on "normal" mode, granted; so with a little luck, I'll get an hour-and-a-half out of "hard" mode, when I'm brave enough to chance that).

Good, unclean fun for all the family. IF IT FLIES, IT DIES!!!

Verdict: 8/10.

Fairly Short, simple graphics, no real replay value. In general, it feels like a flash game. But I still enjoyed it, so . . .

Bird Assassin is a 2D twin stick shooter game where the goal is simple. Kill every bird you see but will you want to play this game ? In Bird Assassin we play as a redneck. One day our Pa is killed off by an Ostrich and its up to us to avenge the death of you're pa by killing all the birds. So how is this game ? It's actually really fun and for the price its also a really fun and a difficult game. The game is a 2D platformer where you scroll along the level killing birds and jumping on platforms to avoid bushes and bear traps. Overall the game is fairly simple and all the levels are the same but they get harder as they go on. There are a few problems with the game. The game is fairly short it only took me an hour to beat and its quite easy to get the best gun in the game and you can blast through the other levels easily. But for the asking price its definetly worth it and i really suggest you check this game out. I give Bird Assassin a 7.5/10

Not a bad game but only has 1 hours worth of content and no real replay ability although you can replay levels there is no reason to. The game was getting repetitive after only 30 mins. Over all 3.5/10

I voted for this on greenlight when it was getting hit with backlash for the general idea, and to my surprise...
it was a glorified flash game for $2. I remember being excited about this when it hit steam and passed it's greenlight age,
but the only questionable thing was it's price. Then I found out that this game was originally on XBLA, but what I also found out was that it was never very POPULAR.

The game plays OKAY but why it needs to take SO long to setup is far beyond me. But my biggest gripe with this game is it's "HUMOR". Okay, I do admit the first part WAS funny, but that was only because of how random it was. The rest of the jokes in this game AREN'T funny. I literally heard the guy I was playing as say "WHOOPS, YOU DEAD" as he killed a bird 20 times... in the 14 minutes or so I've played. But then there are the jokes that try to hard and end up being something else, for example, in the first level, a bird with bombs strapped to it runs at you. It was random and it might have been funny if the main character didn't mention TERRORISM, so instead of getting a bad laugh, I ended up screaming "THAT'S JUST WRONG".

The gameplay gets REALLY tiresome after a while as well, and the game gets REALLY repetitive after some time.
Bird Assassin's levels go a little something like this:
1) KILL BIRDS
2) PLAY A POINTLESS MINIGAME JUST BECAUSE
3) SEE SOME RANDOM, OFTEN UNFUNNY, ♥♥♥♥ HAPPEN
and that's it.

The bushes "hurt you" but you they're just there to add "challenge" to an already SUPER EASY game, and during the last part in level 2, they get in the way, and you will DIE.

Overall I wanted to go into bird assassin loving it. I wanted to laugh allot, but all I got was a retitive, often boring, and unfunny game. I will say this again, the first scene to the game is FUNNY, but theres one fatal flaw to it: THE STORY SUCKS. And that just about sums it up.

I do not recommend Bird Assassin unless you like to spend your money on FLASH GAMES.

Don't buy the game.

The reasons for this a very simple. Instead of just shooting lots of birds with different guns you have a platformer. An jump mechanics are broken in a very simple way - whenever you press the jump button on the keyboard, you don't jump. Or you do a token jump. or you do the full jump. Or you jump but stop moving.

The game is broken. Don't buy.

The story is simple: Your daddy is killed by a bird. You avenge your daddy.
This game is short, but really awesome! Reach your car by shooting your way to it. Watch out for the walking/flying bird though, they can kill you too!
It's an easy game, it's almost impossible to die, but also almost impossible to finish a level without getting any damage.
After some levels, you get a mini-boss, well... mini isn't the best word, I'd prefer HUGE boss. You'll get the joke when you play it.

I would call it an AAA-game, but since that a cheap game like this one can't be AAA, I'll just call it a AA-game. It's only 2,99 euros and completely worth it.

Killing birds is the only thing you have to do. After each level, you go shopping with the money you got for selling the dead birds. You start off with a simple hunting rifle and near the end of the game, you become invincible with your hunting minigun, that's right, a freakin' minigun. It's gets even better! There is no reload and infinite ammo!

This game is great for when you got bored playing your 'daily'-game and need some relaxation. Personally I had a lot of fun in this game, too bad it will only take you around 1-1.5 hours to finish.


Pros
- Kill birds!
- Awesome weapons
- Funny aspects (like the bosses)
- mini-games

Cons
- Game is too short
- Almost impossible to die
- Bad story-line (don't judge)


Rating
7/10
would play again.

Recommended?
Yes, I recommend it. It's cheap and it makes you smile. Eventhough it's small, it's fun. Tips for the developers: Make an 'endless'-mode, just as it says: Running endlessly until you die, with maybe a leaderboard.
