How many test drives you’ve had in your dad’s car before you got a license to drive one? Some will say one, some say two and there will be many who still haven’t got their license. But we are talking about something big here, as big as a helicopter!
Helidroid 3D is the name of the Android application that has already made it big in the app market with the previous versions of the same app. If you’ve ever played it, then you might be familiar with the gameplay. You are given some tasks or missions which you have to complete with the help of the helicopter. For example, you have to take down 4 piles of books without touching them. For your assistance, there is a ball available to you that you have to push and take down the books. You can also shoot rockets, but the lesser you use, the more you score.
The biggest difference in this version of the app is that the graphics are much more advanced and the 3D factor plays a big role. It actually appears like you’re playing a 3D game, much like Max Payne because the situations are very similar here. All the missions given to you will be within the boundaries of a house, yet you’ll be chasing trucks, cars and even trains. Actually the helicopter provided to you is a toy and so are the other motor vehicles I’ve just talked about. But the action sequences will be completely natural and full of suspense. There is no time limit in any of the levels, but you have to meet a certain criterion every time to get 3 stars. I don’t know the exact number of levels, but the more you win, the more you unlock and the more you get to play.
The controls of Helidroid 3D are a little bit difficult to get used to or at least I felt it but you’ll get through with it as well. You can control the vertical height of the helicopter as well as tilt it or take a U-Turn when required. There is a trial session at the start of the game where you can learn all the tactics and learn how to fly the helicopter. Only then will you be able to complete the tasks satisfactorily. The tasks are not much difficult at the start but soon you’ll see the stakes rising well above your limits. But let me remind you that this game is very addictive and it’s to no one’s surprise if you end up playing this game every time you’re free.
The app is available for free in the Play Store. You can’t get a better chance to play such a fantastic game for free. It’s fun, adventurous, addictive and suitable for any age. The thrill of driving a helicopter and the fun to crash it like a toy are only available here!
Pros: amazing 3D graphics; lots of missions to unlock; addictive gameplay; free.
I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
