Blazing Beaks is a demanding roguelike, in which we play as cute animals, traversing colorful locations full of monsters and mutants, which we have to defeat. The game offers several gameplay modes for one and several players. Applava is responsible for the title.
Blazing Beaks takes place in a world infested by evil, in the form of dangerous, bloodthirsty monsters. At the same time, it is connected with a certain mystery, because powerful artifacts have been scattered all over the world, which calls us with their dark force. However, we must be careful, because we do not know what is behind them, and excessive greed can lead to our defeat.
Blazing Beaks is a dynamic arcade game with three levels of difficulty, in which we explore randomly generated locations, full of loot, as well as opponents we have to defeat, using dozens of weapons available in the game. The arsenal offers laser guns, crowbars, freezing and acid guns, black matter guns, and others.
In addition to fighting opponents, we have a lot of special items and artifacts to collect. The former affects our statistics, i.e. chance to acquire rare items, maximum health and its regeneration, increase the reload speed and the number of bullets in the magazine, as well as chance for landing critical attacks and dealing damage. The same is true of the aforementioned artifacts, which, however, instead of strengthening our characters, significantly weaken them.
The player takes on the role of one of the eight available bird characters, differing not only in species but also in skills. These include the ability to become invisible for a short period of time, the chance to freeze our opponent, or protection from missiles.
Some of the characters is available from the very beginning, and some have to be unlocked by killing bosses (there are five of them in the game) waiting for us at the end of each thematic area. However, if we get bored with the characters designed by the devs, we can create our own or enjoy those created by other players.
Blazing Beaks has several game modes, enabling us to play solo, in co-op with our friends or against them. We can choose from a story mode for 1-2 players, in which our task is to kill monsters, survive, and get as far away as possible. The second mode is a tournament mode for two to four players, where the players fight each other to stay alive as long as possible. This can be done in classic deathmatch, but we can also increase the difficulty level by starting the game with one of the additional challenges. These are divided into the Single Weapon mode (each player starts with one randomly assigned weapon that cannot be changed during the round), the Heart-Drop mode, which involves dropping hearts that can be used by opponents to heal themselves, the Chess mode, in which a player able to pick up a skull and gold on to it for a certain amount of time is able to deal damage to others, and the Hunter mode, where each player starts with a spear that has to be picked up from the ground after each throw.
Blazing Beaks is a game with colorful pixel-art visuals, in which everything is charming, despite contrasting themes.
