It seems like a good game but it stops working after the first level. Developers, please fix this.

Flight of the Icarus is a game with an incredible amount of potential. The gameplay is very similar to a first person version of FTL. What? How did it get such low ratings? Because it doesn't work! The copy I purchased wouldn't go past level one. The online demo at http://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding/gunsoficarus.jsp let me go to level two. Of those two level, I experienced amazing gameplay, awesome audio, and some chincy graphics, but a broken game gets bad ratings, sorry.

A great prequel to get you into the swing of Guns of Icarus. As one lone privateer, take on the pirate armada and man cannons to defeat their endless onslaught.
