Razor-sharp reflexes are required if you want to make it through the 100 tightly calibrated levels in HELI 100.
Developer Tree Men Games channels the same fast, intuitive action so beautifully captured in their popular PAKO car chase series. Hop into the cockpit of a helicopter facing off against dozens of enemies: exploding mines, soaring planes, and merciless mechs.
Each round starts high in the sky inside a continuously shrinking battle arena. As you run out of room, you’re slowly squeezed into uncomfortably close contact with the baddies. Good thing you’re armed—and nimble. Tap to steer, brake, fire, and collect powers like shields, speed boosters, smart bombs, and heavy-fire artillery. You shoot automatically, so don’t worry about aiming so much as simply surviving wave after wave of angry, futuristic flying machines.
Take down enough enemies and you’ll unlock new whirlybirds and power-ups, though blasting through HELI 100 will ultimately take patience and skill. If you’ve got a hankering for fast-paced arcade action, get to this chopper, pronto.
