It's a neat educational game with cute graphics and good music. As others previously stated, the game is really short and lacks any sort of explanation. It would have been nice to have stuff to rely on (such as world maps) in order to get better at the game. I would have gladly recommended it if it wasn't so pricy (10$) .

It was alright. It was a casual game for sure but it was alright. I can't imagine ever playing more of it than the two run throughs I gave it and I'm glad it was just part of a bundle I picked up. I wouldn't suggest someone pay money for this game unless it was incredibly cheap and it somehow appealed to you.

For the price, this game isn't worth it. Don't get me wrong, the game isn't terrible. It's simple, short, and easy to understand. Things like naming "play" and "repair" as nouns rather than verbs, repetitive gameplay, a worthless scoring system, and oddly place christmas music hold this game back.

That being said, it's a decent edutainment game- just not for the full $10. The price is what prevents me from recommending it.

If you're at all interested, I made a video about this game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1PUoJnzGjs

A cool educational game for children that adults won't mind playing with them. Has enjoyable music, art, and a unique sense of humor.

Cute little educational game but a little thin on content, it has challenges to help you get the most out of it but the "questions" are pretty basic.

Air Forte is Blendo Games' take on the educational genre and they've done it very well. It may not be the best teaching tool but it is an entertaining way to review math, vocabulary, and geography. The gameplay is simple and easy to pick up. The music is catchy and goes well with Air Forte. The adventure story is funny and surprisingly meaningful whiles maintaining the unique visual style and quirkiness of a Blendo Games title.

The one complaint is that this game is far too short. While it does have different modes after completing the main adventure, there's not much reason to come back to them after you've played for an hour. Overall, it's a good game but don't buy it unless it's on sale.

It’s an edutainment title with a very short (20mins) adventure where you practice maths, vocabulary and geography by flying into the right answers. I like the presentation and you can have four people play at once. It’s just a shame that there’s so little content. The breadth of what is tested is very limited e.g. maths is just about the twelve times table and there’s no ‘learning’ element e.g. a map to study geography or explanations of what nouns or verbs are.

It’s clearly a game that was made very quickly, even using sound and music from Atom Zombie Smasher. It's clearly not worth the full asking price as is, but with a bit more time put in, it could have become a fairly good game for young children.

This felt like a game you could play by typing in "Free Flash Games".

Not worth the space it takes up.

It's a good game for kids with educational value. However, the controls and the stutter in the graphics can make the game very difficult to play. It's also very short and can be beaten in less than 1 hour. There are more things to do than the main adventure, but the interest levels are low. Achievements are broken.

Edit - Go into the game folder in Steam/Steamapps/Common/Airforte/Data and copy the steamwrapper.dll and rename it to steamwrap2.dll. This will make the achievements work.

Edit - Fixed the stutter in the graphics by installing the new OpenAL to help fix sound issues as well. For some reason this solved the problem. I found the file here. http://www.openal.org/creative-installers/

This game is the closest thing I've found to word ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s or number ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s from back in my elementary school days. The geography sections were new to me and the concept itself is pretty fun, though for adults or anyone that is looking for a "real game," you may want to move on. If you have a youngling that could use a boost in their math, vocab or geography, then this may be worth a buy.

If you want to learn about this game this video is only gameplay footage and will tell/show you everything you need to know about it. It's basically a look at what you'll be playing and takes out all the reviewer fluff that they like to throw in.

After a fresh install, the game consistently crashed on startup. I switched to Win 7 compatability mode as suggested on their site's FAQ, which did allow the game to run, but it was unplayably slow and choppy (on my 1.6Ghz i7 with 4GB RAM). I could spend more time trying to get it up to speed, but after playing a few rounds it didn't seem like it was worth my time.

Trademark Blendo weirdness in full effect. The style and some assets apparently were reused for Atom Zombie Smasher, so if you played that first, this'll feel very similar. The game itself combines are-you-smarter-than-a-4th-grader material with twitch-tank-control steering. Play with friends!

Educational game for primary school aged children. Well programmed, excelent artwork but little to no entertainment value for people over the age of 10.
