These are my favorite Luftrausers photo
These are my favorite Luftrausers
by Conrad Zimmerman

I've been slavishly playing Luftrausers like a madman this past weekend, and I'm shaping up to be a fairly decent player. To help you get a sense of the different Rausers you can pilot, I put together this little video showing four of my favorite configurations.

I'm seriously addicted to this game. Only three absurdly difficult challenges stand between me and total completion, and I'll be damned if I'm going to let them get the better of me. Make sure you go and read our full review!

Review: Luftrausers
by Conrad Zimmerman

Vlambeer's air combat game, Luftrausers, has finally been cleared for take-off, following a wait that seemed far longer than anybody expected it would. It's been worth holding out for, and fans of high speed, challenging shoot-em-ups have something pretty special on their hands.

Review: Infested Planet photo
Review: Infested Planet
by Conrad Zimmerman

This should sound somewhat familiar: a small band of mercenaries are on a forbidding planet, confronted by a horrific alien force that swarms across the landscape. Well-armed and entrenched, the soldiers have been easily keeping the enemy at bay despite being surrounded when, suddenly, the air becomes thick and acrid. Coughing and sputtering, the squad slowly begins to weaken from poison in the air while the aliens keep coming in force and threaten to overrun them.

That's the experience of playing Infested Planet. No matter how strong your defense or capable your soldiers, death is always just one mutation away.
