A physics action game with very unique controls, gameplay, and a universally praised branching plot. You play as a little battle copter, moving it around with your mouse, with a 2D side view. You can attach various battle implements to your machine {shields, swords, maces, guns, throwing weapons} and your main attack method is flying in circles at the right speed and angle to swing the weapon and hit your opponent.

An incredibly fun and unique physics brawler that gives you a ship, attaches a giant swinging weapon to it, and sets it in a mostly destructible environment; And what could be better then that?

Additionally, the artwork and graphics are just fantastic, with many of this site's decorations coming straight from this game.

Indieness: Indie, anything that is in a Humble Indie Bundle seems like it should be quite indie; But this game also is almost 100% action, normally conventionally priced, and has very detailed realistic graphics.
Play?: Must Play
