Summary: One of the best indie games i ever seen. Important: before checking metascore make sure u get that THIS IS NOT CASUAL GAME. Its all about TRYHARDS with strange contols and so on. Its great, but not for retard cauals. Deal with it.
Summary: Once you get used to the controls, it gives incomparable experience; difficulty becomes not as insane as seemed on the first sight. It's a unique game, even with it's own flaws. There's nothing else that will give you same experience, that will make you keep moving the mouse in circular motion even after you exit the game.
Summary: Hammerfight's setting seems to be a variation of cyberpunk with a hint of light fantasy. The music is fitting, and somewhat interesting, but quite repetitive. The graphical presentation is reminiscent of PC games from the 1990s, even though the ship animations could be considered fluid. What is most unique (and incredibly problematic) about the game is the attack mechanic.
Summary: It's actually a very clever concept for a PC game--just poor execution. They've tried to create a game where the mouse acts like a Wiimote and you use it to directly control a flail attached to a flying machine. It kind of works, but a mouse is really too clumsy to be whipping around in continuous circular motions--it just feels unnatural.
Summary: A challenging, exciting experience. Out of all the humble bundle games, this was by far the best. Its hard to get used to and there are a few bugs, nothing game breaking though. I don't understand all these horrible reviews, this game was great.
Summary: The main idea behind the game is decent.. but not everything works as it should be. Hammerfight is a part of Humble Bundle #3 and is surely the worst game in this pack. The goal is to control some kind of a flying machine and deal damage to your foes by swinging its .. hammer, as the title suggests. There's nothing compeling in this game, it's difficult but not rewarding, the controls respond lousy and most important - Hammerfight is just plain boring and poorly made.
Summary: Given that the game was included in the humble indie bundle, I expected a half decent game. however i was sorely disappointed. it may be an original idea, and is different from pretty much anything else out there, but it does not mean that it actually pulls it off well. the controls are the main point that really turned me off, Its nice that you use the mouse to move around, but given that I failed the very first level (non-tutorial level) at the very least 10 times, it...
Summary: The game has its flaws, that's sure. It can be frustratingly difficult, use cheap tricks to enrage the player and has a fistful of bugs. Still the gameplay is quite new and original, the controls aren't stiff and are quite genuine and the story, even it is hard to figure it in first, is deep and huge, big enough to hold many sequels. Game is quite big and long (mainly due to the insane difficulty). The game itself is extremely fun and original, well worth the 10$ value.
Summary: In Hammerfight you control a very small helicopter-like machine in a steampunk-setting that has hammers, swords, maces and so on attached to it. You usually fight against similar opponents. The interesting part about it is, that you directly control your machine with the mouse and the weapons swing, when you swing your hand aswell. It is really fun to smash the other helicopters with your weapons, as you see them breaking to parts.
Summary: I picked up Hammerfight as part of Humble Indie Bundle 3, having never heard of it before, and my reaction to it is bittersweet, but sadly a little more on the bitter side. The game deserves points for inventing a simple but interesting gameplay mechanic that's extremely satisfying when it works. (Emphasis: when it works.) The idea is that your mouse controls a robot with a weapon hanging from the bottom.
