The lovely aesthetics and graceful movement in A King's Bird are undercut by a too steep difficulty and imprecise controls.

55 / 100
Rich gameplay concepts and lush aesthetics caged by suffocating level design and a weak story. The constant clash between free, flowing movement and repetitive, often claustrophobic levels puts a damper on the entire experience.

When things are going well, The King's Bird is a wonderful and fluid experience.
