Today I had a chance to try to the demo of Hammerfight available on Steam. The game is all about brutal air combat using small flying machines with large weapons such as blades, hammers and metal balls attached to the machines using chains. Imagine yourself being a flying medieval flail kinda weapon wreaking havoc to other equally deadly machines. It is a lot of fun!

One of the real strengths of Hammerfight is it's controls. The game is fully mouse controlled and as you move your mouse in a circular motion your machine swings it's weapon in the same way. Combine this with realistic physics and you get some really intuitive controls where you really need to time your swings for maximum damage.
