About

Every now and then, pilots from all over the world join to challenge each other in a big competition. They take turns finishing a dangerous track filled with foes, hoping to dominate the score table.

Your team is making the final preparations. The band are setting up to perform. And your ship - ”The Blue Flamingo” stands ready and waiting in the hangar...

The Blue Flamingo is a straight forward, bite size, Shoot em up game created entirely using handmade models. A 32 feet long handcrafted model was built specially for the game, along with countless props and assets that were filmed and photographed. All the effects, rocket flares and explosions were created using firecrackers and other pyrotechnics.

Like every other Shmup, this is a game that challenges you to reach the highest possible score. This is made interesting by an economical system that allows you to invest your score in upgrades, which makes earning more score points easier. On the other end, you are rewarded with interest on what is left of your score when you progress to the next level. You have to make a choice - to upgrade and try to regain the score, or rely on your skills to beat the increasingly difficult levels.

Use your greed wisely to beat your friends and climb up the score table.

However, the Game is quite difficult, because there is almost only one Life Indicator and as soon as the game is empty, the Game is over. Worse still, however, the Life Indicator does not replenish after you have completed a Level. So stay nice to be patient;-). Good:-Gameplay-Graphic Style Bad:-Only One Life Unit-No Continues Rating: 3/5

Unfortunately, you really can't recommend the Game. The Idea in itself is great. The Level has been tinkered and then filmed and runs as a Video in the Background. Unfortunately, that's the only good thing about the Game. The jazzy Music itself is also good, but it doesn't suit such a Game, because this is all about picking up Points. There is only one level, once as a day and as a night version. The landscape video is only available in 24fps and visibly jerks. The Controls have been rather poor. It flies quite unintuitively. On top of it comes the presence of a strong Jerking during Explosions, which worsens the Controls even more. There are few Enemy Types and no bigger Bosses. Basically, after 10 Minutes, you saw everything.

Unfortunately, The Blue Flamingo gives away all its Potential very early. The Idea of building and scanning all graphic Elements (except the HUD) by hand is something else. As a result, however, the Content in the Game is also missing. Basically, 2 Backgrounds Alternate at different times of The Day and the Opponent selection is quite small. Pickups don't exist either. Therefore, the Gameplay is only designed for a little Baller Without Draught-Long-term Motivation is zero. Too bad, actually, because the very own Look comes across really well. The Technical Implementation is really annoying. No matter what I tried, the Game constantly jerks on my Setup (i5 6600K/AMD R9 390/DDR4 RAM). Even at the lowest Resolution. So Can only be a software problem as I can play graphically DEUTLICH more elaborate games loosely WITH 200 fps.
