Baby-feeding action game
The first thing you will notice about Mama Hawk are its strange graphics. It has a super bright, colorful style that is part hand-drawn, half deranged cuteness. The game is really fun: You play as a mother bird who picks up animals and drops them onto her nest of hungry chicks to feed them before they starve. It’s strangely satisfying and addictive to see your chicks graduate the nest amid terrible/awesome puns. Extra points also for a cool and strange and fierce female hero.
The controls are smooth and intuitive once you get a hang of them, and you can play the game with one hand. The levels are beautiful, each with a ton of animals, each slightly different, to keep things interesting, and requiring different skills to outsmart them. Mama Hawk has a ton of small, thoughtful touches: A really cool parallax world map, a timed ladybug spinner, and a gazillion hilarious costumes to dress up Mama. The game is fun and very addictive.
Mama Hawk comes out on Thursday, February 22.
