DescriptionSteamBirds is a turn-based aircraft combat game set in an alternative XX century with a light steampunk flavour.
The scene is commanded from a top-down perspective and all aircraft are implicitly at the same altitude. The missions always start out with the player outnumbered or at least with inferior firepower. Units on both sides are equipped with at most two special abilities such as 180 or 360 degree quick-turns, double speed, armour at the expense of firepower etc. Although special abilities can be used an unlimited number of times, a turn with no ability must alternate after turns with abilities in use.
Not only the health bar shrinks when an aircraft gets shot. Rudders cannot steer left, right, or at all, guns get jammed for a turn etc. Missions end with the complete destruction of either of sides.
