Play as a helicopter, raiding a series of islands using different types of weapons to fight off enemy turrets, helicopters and tanks. In campaign mode, you can get up to 40 upgrades over the course of the game. The game also includes a survival mode that tests your ability to combat the enemy for as long as possible without dying in order to gain higher and higher scores.



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Potential hampered by poor controls.

This game could have been something. It's rare you see 3D work of any quality at all here, and this accomplishes that pretty well. The controls are just painful to use on at least two counts, though: One, that your chopper will only move in one of four directions. The lack of diagonals is a huge problem when strafing while maneuvering is a vital part of avoiding enemy fire, which it is in this game. Secondly, turning with mouse and keyboard controls seems smooth out of combat, but as soon as it targets an enemy it goes insanely jerky and I spend several seconds totally out of control as the auto-targetting fights with me. Your heart may have been in the right place with that feature but the implementation is awful.

Clean that up, and you might have something pretty good here.

The control scheme has been an issue from the start. I took tester input and did the best I could honestly. Most testers complained that the controls were too difficult, so I didn't think it would be wise to add an extra layer of complication by allowing diagonal movement. I've tried like 5 control schemes for this game and no matter what, people complained that it was too clunky. I've come to the conclusion that a 3D helicopter game is simply too ambitious of a project for a flash game.

pretty bad

it's impossible to aim the guns using the mouse, i apreciate your trying to make it 3-D but controls just aren't working out.

That is pretty sick!

Almost like a Ps1 game. Impressive, it's the first good 3d game i've played on the internet.
