Impressions: Luftrausers makes too much sense on the Vita

Luftrausers is perfect on the Vita in the same way Vlambeer's Super Crate Box was perfect on the Vita. It's "perfect for the Vita" because it's a great game. While either title, with their minimal arcade sensibilities "make sense" on a port...

Luftrausers final unlockable is a monstrosity

After no small amount of effort (and a couple of glitches that I am a bit peeved about), I finally managed to complete all of the challenges in Luftrausers and the reward you get for doing so is totally amazing.

LUFTRAUSERS is just the right amount of crazy

Vlambeer sure does make great games. Super Crate Box and Gun Godz in particular are just so finely tuned that I can't help but wonder whether the dudes that make up the Netherlands-based studio are game developer robots. I'm pretty sure the...

PAX: Vlambeer's Luftrausers soars

Vlambeer is bringing Luftrausers to PC and Mac, consoles
