I just love this game, it really makes me change my personality and plunge into that steampunk Dune-like world of tub-flying knights. The secret is in the physical skill you need to develop to succeed as a young aristocrat, defending his world from all kinds of airborn dangers. Sitting in an iron barrel you energetically move your mouse in spirals to aquire hitting impulse on the dongle and crash smth ('Mount Your Friends' veterans should feel familiar). The physics model is allright and you soon get to feel the weapon almost like a real object. Overall, it is innovative & well designed, has a story, a lot of crazy incidents during fights, some roleplay elements and all the reasons to recommend!
PS: Particle Mace's author clearly has borrowed the idea from here!

Обожаю эту игру! Летаешь в пепелаце, размахивая этаким смертоносным *** (ветеранам игры "Оседлай своих друзей" будет проще) при помощи энергичных спиральных движений мышью. Эта физкультурная нагрузка вкупе с неплохо реализованной физическеой моделью заставляет плотнее вжиться в роль и сопереживать происходящему, пепелац скоро начинает восприниматься как весомый объект. Из диалогов становится понятно, что пилот - юноша из аристократической семьи в мире навроде Дюны, где большой спрос на эти навыки. В общем, присутствуют отличный новаторский дизайн, сюжет, куча веселых случайностей в боях, небольшая прокачка и все основания рекомендовать!
ПС: Попробуйте также свежую абстрактную аркаду Particle Mace, идея которой заимствована отсюда!

This is honestly one of my favorite games of all time, but I HATED it at first. The controls are some of the most counterintuive of any game I've ever played, and it feels incredibly awkward until you get used to them. Starting out, you will die, a lot. But if you stick with it, the physic-based movement and combat are incredibly satisfying; everything has a great sense of momentum and impact to it and it's a lot of fun just wailing on enemies in the arena and smashing them to bits with your giant mace helicopter.

A great looking game with fantastic combat dynamics and a story which is just exceptional. This is the kind of game you play twice and mess around with and then come back to a couple of years later to do it all again.
The whole culture and society is just incredible and complex, it feels like the author's created a whole alternate universe.

I can't really say anything else without giving away the story, but trust me, if you're not put off by the graphics and aren't turned away by the idea of level / checkpoint based gameplay, you'll love it.

This is one of my most favorite games, and it's a damn shame it's got mixed reviews. The gameplay is challenging but original, the controls intuitive and responsive, and the setting is interesting and unique (don't try to understand the story though it was translated from poetic russian similar to the original Pathologic). Obviously from the screenshots it doesn't have higher resolutions. It's a shame there isn't a smartphone/tablet version, I always thought it would be perfect for that platform.

Hammerfight is the most underrated game I know. Its controls are physics based and more intuitive than any game I've played before. It makes you feel the weight of your weapons and there's so much room to actually be skilled at the game. The aesthetics of the game are great. Really, it's just an underrated and great game - and there's going to be a sequel, Highfleet.
