Reviews

“Ultimately, Airhead excels at holding your attention with an intriguing world that sometimes feels unsettling for unclear reasons, dastardly puzzles that make you feel clever for solving them, and fluid animation that feels satisfying in the moment. It has an air of Limbo, but also of the PS Vita classic Tearaway, in how it presents its world and its puzzles.”
8.5/10 – God is a Geek

“Airhead is a fantastic addition to the side-scrolling adventure platformer genre. The need to refill Head very often adds a unique additional element to the gameplay. That, layered with challenging and enjoyable puzzles, a fantastic world to navigate, and unique creatures within it, make for a really entertaining experience.”
8.4/10 – Noobfeed

“While early glimpses of the tone, narrative premise, and visual style of Airhead may channel Inside, its gameplay seems to be much more similar to a game like Hollow Knight [...] offering a powerful and evocative blend of thoughtful, unique puzzle gameplay and storytelling.”

About This Game

Airhead is an adventure through a sprawling interconnected world, where you must explore, evolve and overcome intricate puzzles to succeed.

You play as Body, a small creature who meets a round, inflated organism and uses it as a head. And while Head is slowly but surely deflating, you have a chance to save its life.

To do so, you need to use air cylinders to keep Head inflated while you explore Airhead’s interconnected world and learn about its secrets.

On your adventure, it will be up to you to uncover the true connection between Head, the air cylinders, and the technology that litters the world so that you can save Head no matter the cost.


Finding your way through Airhead's world is not always easy. You must brave dark caverns, ancient structures, and other mysterious locations in order to save Head.

Along the way, you will find new abilities, and uncover new areas and puzzles, and if you go even farther afield, who knows what hidden truths you may stumble upon?


As you explore, you will encounter numerous puzzles involving the environment, strange creatures, and old technology to challenge your logic and creativity.

Everything is there for a reason and can be overcome by piecing together the puzzle and understanding the rules of Airhead's strange world.


Body and Head must work together to accomplish their goal, and as time passes, their bond and abilities will grow. What will you do to preserve their companionship?

And when the impact of your choices becomes clear, are you willing to shoulder the consequences of saving a friend?
