Everyone knows that saying – “birds of a feather flock together”. It’s pretty simple: the same group of people or animals will always stay together and mingle together. But how about we get a little simpler than that? In this game, it’s literal. You’re a bunch of birds, and you’ll be flocking and flying together.
Of a Feather is kind of an action platformer, but plays vertically instead of your regular horizontal platforming. It’s like a game of doodle jump, except this game isn’t as fast paced because you’ll need precision and quick thinking. The game is played entirely using your keyboard. You’ll press W or the up arrow key to flap your wings and fly up a certain amount (it’s not much, but it’s a tactical thing). The A and D keys (or the left and right arrow keys) will make you move left or right. This can be combined with your flap key to fly in a certain direction. As you go up, you’ll see other birds standing in some platforms. Your goal is to get a certain number of birds to come with you until the end of each level. A level ends after a certain height. You’ll need to get to that height with the number of birds indicated on the top right of the screen. Once you get there, you’ll again start with 0 birds. The number of birds you’ll need to be with you will increase, so it will be time to step up your game.
Of a Feather is a fun little game that needs patience and skill. The slow pace is an indicator of a game needing precision and good timing to complete. If you’re on the market for a game that gets increasingly hard while still maintaining its cuteness, then go for Of a Feather. It’s a great choice and one you won’t regret.
