To be honest, I haven’t got a bad word to say about Who’s That Flying. The game played like a dream, it was fluid, easy to get into, playable, chaotic and impossibly infuriatingly FUN! I’ve played side scroller shoot-em-up’s since I killed my Spectrum on R-Type and this, to me, brings back the good old days of excellent games with tons of playable levels and good old fashioned fun. Buy it. Play it. Love it.

This is an amusing, entertaining, addictive and replayable piece of shmup action that caters wonderfully to pretty much anyone who wants to play it. I certainly wish there was more of it to love, but it offers a better ratio of money-to-hours-of-entertainment than most games do, and it's hard to think of something on which I'd rather spend a fiver.

Who’s That Flying?! is a fun little game that is great for a quick distraction. Though the story mode is short, the various challenges and unlockable rewards adds to the game’s lifespan. And at a cheap asking price, what have you go to lose?

Who's That Flying!? is a small title with some excellent little touches and a decent amount of meat on it. There's nothing particularly ground breaking or revolutionary about it, but it's well polished and offers a few neat twists on the standards of the genre. You won’t be playing it weeks down the line, but it’s fun while it lasts.

Who’s That Flying?! slaps a coat of superhero paint on top of the shoot-‘em-up genre and makes the genre its own with tower defense elements and a hilarious story. Mediatonic handles the port of its inventive little game with flying colors, adding a new, fun, and inexpensive game to the Steam store.

Per poco meno di 6 Euro, Who's That Flying?! è un titolo in grado di regalare in assoluto diverse ore di intrattenimento e lo consigliamo senza riserve a tutti gli amanti degli sparatutto, che potranno trovare nel titolo Mediatonic qualche nuova idea in grado di sposarsi perfettamente con il genere. Una gestione dei controlli ottimale, precisa e veloce soprattutto con l'utilizzo di un controller, permette alle sessioni di gioco di non risultare mai frustranti e di riuscire a divertire tutti i tipi di giocatori, sia quelli alle prime armi, grazie ad un livello di difficoltà non particolarmente elevato, sia coloro i quali sono desiderosi di competere in classifiche online e dimostrare così di essere i numeri uno della galassia, ovviamente senza mancare mai di stile!

Who’s That Flying?! zests up an arcade formula so familiar we practically have it etched across the insides of our eyelids, and it doesn’t make you pay through the nose for the privilege. Those deaf to the genre’s charms probably won’t be much moved regardless, but “bullet hell” veterans weary of their own, incessant destruction should find something to amuse.

Who's That Flying?! is enjoyable, funny, and cute. The story mode kind of fell flat for me as each city's three levels felt similar and dragged a bit, but that's just a portion of the game. The challenges and Infinity Modes provide quick doses of shmup action that speed the gameplay up and give you interesting objectives. It's a polished package that's best on the PC thanks to online leaderboards and awesome in-game visuals.

While undoubtedly Who's That Flying?! is a fun and charming little arcade game, I find it hard to justify its commercial release on Steam. While I can see it being a nice cheap game to keep you occupied on your PSP, which is what it was originally made for, the game is really little more than a glorified browser game for which you have to shell out $6. My advice? Go to your local browser gaming website and try out the many fun games on there, before you spend your hard earned cash on this little chestnut. If you're really interested in checking it out, get it on PSP, but for the PC crowd, you'll find the same amount of enjoyment in something like Elephant Quest or Burrito Bison on Armor Games and still be able to keep your $6 to put towards a Dumper Truck or for investing in the stock market. What could possibly go wrong?

Plenty of gamers are certain to find a lot of enjoyment in the game, but fans of more compelling shoot ‘em ups will only be able to squeeze a minimal amount of worthwhile gameplay out of it. At $7, the price is most certainly inviting. If you’re looking for a quick and fun side-scrolling shoot ‘em up that doesn’t take itself too seriously, Who’s That Flying?! is a decent investment. Just don’t expect anything ground-breaking or terribly unique.
