Air Brawl Brings Angry Bats To Plane Warfare

Imagine my disappointment when I clicked on a link about Air Brawl [official Facebook] only to realise the game didn't have anything to do with the classic Golden Retriever Basketball oeuvre. Instead, Air Brawl - a game about plane acrobatics and flying, gunny death - is intriguing even in the face of a supreme lack of heartwarming doggy yarn. It's been on Early Access for…
