"SteamBirds: Survival" (SB:S) is a dogfighting strategy game that lets you take on an ever-growing number of enemies until you finally bite the dust. It is the sequel to the hit game "Steambirds", which was played by over 10m people worldwide, praised by sites such as Penny Arcade and Rock Paper Shotgun, and was recently ported to iOS and Android.

SB:S features 24 distinct planes, each of which have unique strengths and weakness that emphasize different play styles. Each plane has its own local and global leaderboard, so you can pick your favorite then fight to distinguish yourself as the master of that plane!

How long can you last against an endless onslaught of enemies? A million lives depend on the answer to that question..!

I have to give it a 4, because every time I try to use the poison gas, the game crashes!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars December 12, 2010


i had a lot of bugs; missile didnt do damage and actually didnt jam my guns, bombs didnt do anything it just places a row of bomb images behind me that wont disappear , poison trails didnt do anything except making a green line that wont disappear and making ships blink green until infinity, and some other bugs

my next problem besides all the bugs is the fact that you have to pay real money for 30% of all the ships and some of the ships are worth way to much, there are to few med kits drops and team mates totally suck

but i still like the idea of this game and i believe that a lot of time went into making it

I can't play it right.

Gee, I really enjoy this game for the five seconds I can play it.
So far, I've tried it on 4 different computers. After a minute or so, it freezes. and not just the game. It freezes the entire internet browser so I have to control+alt+delete (or force quit in the case of a mac). If this only happened on one computer, I wouldnt have such a big problem. Not all computers are fast enough. But I've tried this on four computers, leading it to freeze on macs and pc's, new and old computers, vistas and XP's, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Internet explorer. Honestly? Fix the freezing and I can fix the score.

My only complaint/request: I would have liked to control and/or customize my whole team, but the absence of that isn't enough to keep me from giving a 10/5. I hope you plan on making more.

needs some improvement

The game is good no doubt, but i have some real big problems with it. First, first aid kits will almost never appear which is a good thing somewhat because if they appeared all the time the game would be too easy but the problem is that 1 in 30 of the planes I shoot down drop a med kit. In other words I will almost always die before I find just 1 med kit in a game. this makes using the planes that don't automatically have the first aid a pain (almost useless to me) to use. secondly whenever I shoot down a plane they should not be able to attack you while they are in a "going down" state. But of course that's not the case I have had planes actually kill me with poison while they are about to crash which is not a big problem but I think there should not be a way for a dead plane to kill you after you shoot it down. Not to mention that some of the planes that use the poison are not even supposed to be able to use it (like the turtle-S12) I think its just not fair to the player to have to worry about the plane killing him even after they killed it while 6 to 8 other planes are trying to kill him. The third complaint is the money. Earning the money is fine but as you can see there are 2 types of money to have. The regular money from playing the game and then theres the kind where you have to sign up to a website to use. Now I did not sign up for the website but I'm guessing the main way to earn the tokens are from paying REAL money am I right? (If i am wrong please correct me) It is a stupid idea its just like a tease to the people that don't (and will not) sign up like "Yeah look at these awesome planes, you want them so bad don't you, yeah? WELL TOO BAD YOU CAN'T HAVE THEM LOLS." Finally some of these planes are just a waste of time to use like you look at the stats and think "man why would I use this plane". Personally I would have made it like an upgrading system. Upgrade your plane as you play customize it to your liking, add or remove any of the upgrades you do or don't want (with some limitations). so overall its a good game with just some things that bug the crap out of me. Hope I can see some improvement in this game.
