FireHawk PC 1.21

Immerse yourself in an intergalactic war

FireHawk is one of those unashamedly fun, silly games that are just perfect for mobile phones. It's a classic-style arcade shooter, in which you pilot an aircraft and destroy all enemies in your path. Your plane spits out bullets and bombs constantly, so no need to hit a 'fire' key. In fact, it's pretty difficult not to destroy your first few enemies and, at first, the game feels like it's a bit too easy. As things progress, however, the game gets harder and the bosses get nastier! In terms of graphics, FireHawk performs well, but not brilliantly. The game's sound effects are OK but the repetitive electronic soundtrack is pretty irritating. Luckily, the music and SFX volume can be changed separately. View full description

FireHawk is one of those unashamedly fun, silly games that are just perfect for mobile phones.

In fact, it's pretty difficult not to destroy your first few enemies and, at first, the game feels like it's a bit too easy. As things progress, however, the game gets harder and the bosses get nastier! In terms of graphics, FireHawk performs well, but not brilliantly. The game's sound effects are OK but the repetitive electronic soundtrack is pretty irritating. Luckily, the music and SFX volume can be changed separately.

Unfortunately, FireHawk doesn't translate very well to a Windows desktop. The gameplay is still undeniably fun and addictive but the graphics, sounds, controls and menus have had nothing changed in their move from smartphone to PC. In fact, the game menu still includes a setting for 'Vibrate' - not a feature you find on many computers. This is definitely an enjoyable game but we felt it could have been implemented better.
