Released: October 28, 2009

Hammerfight is about 2D battles of flying machines equipped with various slashing, piercing and blunt weaponry.A unique combat system is based on realistic physics simulation, and it ties the movements of the rider to the movements of your mouse. As you wave the mouse, your rider swings his warhammer, smashing the foe into the wall!
This creates an unequaled feel of the real strike, a feel of the mass of the weapon in your hands. Simulated physics and direct mouse control creates a huge variety of possible battle techniques and an unlimited field for perfecting one's fighting skill.

I wanted to love this game for its neat gameplay and fun aesthetic, but the utterly terrible user interface and loading times made it tough. Too many flashing lights in the way during combat. Lots and lots of text that add nothing to the game.
 
I love the concept of flying ships with flails and hammers doing battle - but having to constantly rotate my mouse to swing my hammer is tiring at best. Theres also a ton of unnecessary text/story when the gameplay speaks for itself.
