A physics-based helicopter game, with unique challenges in every level. From swatting killer bees to picking a path through the crush-o-tron, you won't face the same challenge twice. Each level demands that you think a little differently, rather than just learning to fly a little better. Done every level? Great, go for the 15 achievements available for those who can't get enough. Sorted all that? Cool, try it again with the alternative mouse control system!

Use cursor keys to fly around. Space deploys/retracts your winch.

So close...

the game was amazing, but the song.... you heard wayyyyyyy to much. 9/10 and only cause of the song. maybe get like either one song for every level or like 5 or 6 songs that just keep playing the entire game. but not one song.

There's a music-off button if the music isn't to your taste. I'd have liked to have a different tune or a pool of tunes that fitted with each level, but there's a question of cost. I'm genuinely hopeless at music, and had to have appropriately licensed tunes, so the combined cost of (say) 10 tunes was prohibitive.

It's something I'm thinking about for an upcoming game though. Something that's much more dependant on setting an appropriate mood...

Great game and fun achievemnets.

I like this game because of the physics and the easy to use controls. Have to admit some of the levels were hard. I have all achievements though so I'm happy. Even sent the creator a message. =D

good game!

Only problem I had was the down button really didn't do anything when you were turned upside down. besides that great game!

CMU responds:

If you're on the easy controls, up/down/left/right applies the exact same force to the chopper no matter which way up it is facing. Ie, down works just as well when upside down! Must just be an illusion if you see it differently I guess.

In the hard controls, down does nothing. To fly down fast, you need to turn the chopper upside down and let it's natural lift or the throttle aid gravity.

Easy, but still....

I liked it. It was a good puzzle game that didn't instantly kill you for accidentally tapping the walls (Like most other chopper games).Yeah, it was too short, but it was good. Maybe make some complex levels that have a couple of puzzles each. Oh, and please find a better chopper noise. It was the only sound effect that buged me.

CMU responds:

The chopper noise is quite a tough one to get right. It's actually 20 separate samples recorded by me, played at random - not a loop. They're played faster or slower depending on whether you're using the engines. I didn't want a realistic loop as the constant repeating noise would be really annoying, plus you can't adjust it on the fly for things like the engines speeding/slowing (well, you can crossfade to another sound, but you have to have two appropriate and matching sounds then - tricky).

If you don't like it, that's fine of course. You're the first comment from about 47,000 so far that's disliked it enough to mention it though!
