  1. In Brief:

    A vertical top down helicopter shooter, with slightly dated graphics.

    It took several tries to get the game to run the first time I booted the game up; it kept minimizing to the task bar initially, but I did get it to work. Thereafter it worked first time.

    Actually it didn’t. sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t. :)

    The game controls (mouse only) felt a little sluggish and special weapons seemed to be controlled by the same mouse button as the main guns, so they were wasted at the beginning of the level.

    The game was installed as Shoot & Scroll 3D with the executable called Helic P2.

    I thought it may have been an upgraded version of the game Helic by the same developer, but it was a totally different game similar to the old arcade shoot ‘em ups.

    The game installs to C:\Games\ShootnScroll3D\helic_P2.exe

    and is 235Mb in size once installed.

    You can see a video of game play HERE

    Introduction:

    Helicopter arcade game. Shoot’em-up action with plenty of sky adventures and adrenaline. The game is aimed at all gamblers, from novices to hardcore action gamers. Gamblers can try their skills at lot of levels and bosses. As they complete levels, gamblers gain access to new, more powerful armed enemies and unexpected air attack surprises. Easy game controls, arcade action and lot of guns, bullets, rockets and explosions. Ready for takeoff? Wheels up!

    The Game:

    I was really looking forwards to playing this game as shooters of this type (and Shmups) are amongst my favourite arcade genres, but I was really disappointed with the game. Maybe if I’d seen and played it 20 years ago I’d have been impressed but it was far too easy to avoid being hit and when you were hit there was little damage taken.

    I’ve only played a few levels so maybe I’m being a little harsh. I’d rather play some of my recently acquired Steam games (Resident Evil 6, ArmA III, or Origin games such as the latest Battlefield 3 expansion, Sim City or Dead Space 3 {by the way, I finally managed to find someone who swapped the game for a trials bike game called MUD – FIM Motocross World Championship with only £10 loss in my original investment}) :D

    I’d still give this a go if you are remotely interested in arcade shooters such as this; I may have much higher expectations of such games after having played hundreds of them over the past 30 years.

    Features:

    . Totally free game

    . Arcade scrolling shooter, shoot’em all

    . Helicopters with different features: fireball attack, laser beam and air electric shield

    . Machine gun with standart bullets, triple shoot machine gun, machine gun with side tracers, full pumped machine gun

    . Self-direction air to air rockets

    . Sky Master Metal Helicopter boss, Armored Tank with machine gun, Electrical protective tower, Military Red-Skull boss and Sky Jet fighter boss

    . Upgraded bullets, weapons reload time, rockets and super attack charge

    If you like games like 1942, 1943, Siberian Strike, iFighter, Air Strike, Flying Shark, DoDonPachi, Espgaluda, Swiv, Sky Force, Warblade, Air Attack, Sky Gamblers, Helic, Mortal Skies, you’ll probably like this game. If you’ve not heard of any of the above games then you haven’t lived (lol) ;-)

    Conclusion

    As the features quote above, this is already free, though I’ve only been able to find free android versions so far. The game plays okay, but isn’t very inspiring. Wave after wave of similar planes shooting easy to dodge bullets makes for a boring game, but if you don’t like things too fast, this is probably okay.

    I wasn’t able to take any screen captures (all came out blank), and couldn’t find any via Google so please forgive the lack of imagery. At least there was a video available so that you can see what the game play is like.

    I wouldn’t score this more than a 6, but in my estimation is worth less as I’ve got a whole folder full of similar games that are much more exciting and play better. (Sorry Fly Games).

    The game needs more challenging levels, some bigger and better boss fights and a lot more levels to make it a worthwhile regular in my library of games. I’d also include an upgrade system (similar to what you get in rpg games, where earning points gives you perks or better weapons, armor and helicopters).

    Games, Games, and yet more Games plus Download, Installation & Game play Problems:

    If you have any problems installing or getting to work today’s game please go HERE for help.

    If you’re looking for something other than today’s game check the didimatic site via THIS link for some brilliant deals.

    Steam has an indie sale on at the moment with hundreds of games reduced by as much as 80% at the moment. You’ll find all the deals via the Specials tab on Steams front page HERE. There’s a free weekend and sale for Natural Selection and the 24hr deal is You Empire Total War for only £3.24 (approx $5). That’s an amazing price considering I paid around £60 (approx. $90) for the game with all the dlc that was released for the game. The other weekend deal is Dark Souls: Prepare to die edition with 50% off.

    You’ll find many more game deals from Gamersgate, Gamestop, Greenman Gaming and GOG; all of which you can find via the Didimatic site, which I’ve linked to above (apart from Greenman gaming – GMG). There’s a brilliant offer over at GMG with Bioshock Infinite. If you pre-purchase it you get two other games for free. The first Bioshock, plus a choice from several other games including Bioshock 2, Spec Op’s: The Line, Civilization V, Darkness II or Mafia II, All these games are excellent. I’d recommend Spec Ops: the Line or Mafia II. If you like driving games then go for Mafia, if you like horror go for Darkness II. This is the last chance to get this amazing deal as the game is released in a couple of days (Monday I think). X-Com: Enemy Unknown. That said, Steam also have a brilliant deal on this game, with a free giftable copy of Bioshock, a free dlc, loads of TF2 items and X-Com: Enemy Unknown. series totally free as well. GMG also have an excellent Indie sale on, with loads of decent titles reduced significantly.

    There’s a 20% off coupon that can be used with most digital downloads via GMG. You’ll find all the deals from GMG HERE.

    EA also have a brilliant sale on with 50% off most games. also, if you purchased the latest game in the sim City franchise they are giving a free game that includes Dead Space 3, Sim city 4, Crysis 3, Battlefield 3 as well as several other games.

    To be honest there are too many game deals around too list them all. Just visit the sites I recommend above and I’m sure you’ll find something that suits you for a decent price.

    I’m not sure what Alawar’s free game of the month is. Mine has been stuck at sprill for three months now,, but I think someone said it was one of the craze games (Time Management) You may need to reinstall game-box if its still showing the previous game. It’s supposed to change every month, but some community members are seeing the same game for months on end. Dido suggested that you reinstall game-box to fix the problem. Reinstalling game-box shouldn’t affect any previous freebies. :). (You need to install the free Game-box from Alawar to access the free games, which for newcomers change approximately every month). If that’s not enough, check out the Game Discussion forums HERE for details of other games either free or on deals such as the Indie Game bundles (of which there are at least four live at the moment, and all of which contain some excellent games – see below for links and details); or check out the four day sales at IndieGameStand.

    The latest IndieGameStand game is Space Pirates & Zombies (excellent game) (changes late Sunday early Monday morning)) . You can pay less than a dollar for this game, but if you want the extra’s (usually game music, manuals etc) you have to pay the average price.. There’s also several indie bundles over at Indiebundle.org. Each bundle has three games and costs $5 each.

    There’s yet more bundles available from Bundle in a box, Build a Bundle (Groupees), Indie Gala, Indie Royale and the Humble guys are having a weekly sale now. Check the game discussion forums for details of all active bundles.

    Most of the bundles retail for around $5 give or take a few dollars, but you can pay as little as a dollar.

      ========================================================

    A Request for help:

    Developers rely on good feedback to improve their games. If you download this game please take some time once you’ve played it a while to leave some constructive feedback either positive or negative. The more constructive feedback we get, the more likely developers are going to give more games away. The giveaway site already has a very good standing with the search engines. Developers want their products out there on the WWW, this site has the potential to do that. The game giveaway project gives away on average between 9 to 17 thousand downloads for each game depending upon what genre and how obscure the game is. That’s a lot of homes these games are being downloaded into and a lot of ‘potential’ cash that’s being lost by the developers. If we get better games because of better feedback, the community are likely to continue to benefit from the generosity of the developers. Satisfied community members are then more likely to visit the home sites of those developers and purchase games that they may not have bothered with before they discovered the developer via the game giveaway site, thus giving the developers more incentives to give away even more decent games.

    Please leave some feedback once you’ve checked the game out. It can be positive or negative, but please explain what your reasons were for the feedback you post. You could also leave suggestions for improving the game, for example, this game could do with more block types for the levels editor, add more power-ups, describing the ones you think would be suitable, add some mini games (which seem all the rage in some arcade games now) or enable the user to be able to change the in game music easily.

    Thank you in advance to all those who take the time to post a constructive comment.

    Regards

  2. Downloaded/installed fine on Vista 64-bit. Didn’t have any trouble running it.

    Graphics are all right, not very interesting or flashy. The music is energetic.

    The game would be a lot better if the mouse control was better. Stephen says it’s sluggish, but I think it’s too fast (maybe I’m misinterpreting the comment). It’s too sensitive and I didn’t see any way to change it.

    The primary weapon just fires non-stop without pushing a button. It’s probably how I would have played anyway, but would still prefer getting to press a button to shoot. It takes something away from a shooter game if you can’t shoot on your own. Scroll’n'Aim might have been a better name…

    It’s an okay game. There are better cheap scrolling shooters, but this one’s not bad. Pretty simple and not very stimulating.

  3. Installed easily on MSWindows 7HP 64bit.
    Had to make my own desktop shortcut, but that has been the norm for these games that are extracted instead of installed. No prob.

    Game is easy, it’s 0137 my time, and I’ve already beaten the game. It was actually about 10 minutes ago, but they don’t say the game is complete, it just keeps repeating level 10. So a couple of times through level 10.

    Only options are Sound on/off and Music on/off. Game automatically shoots weapons and missiles, when click the mouse button to fire, it fires the special weapons, which there is a limit of 4 per round (if you spend your level points on them).

    Game, however, doesn’t keep score, so there is no high scores list.

    For me, a non-gamer, I’d rate it about 4 out of 10. For youth, I’d give it about a 6 out of 10, and about an 8 out of 10 for grade-schoolers. Gamers would probably rate this a lot lower.

    Helix itself is a lot more fun than this, even the older fighter-plane games from this company featuring WWI, WWII, and Cold War planes were a lot more fun (wish they were back, and along with Helix had the memory violations and particle count errors fixed).

    If you have young kids or just want a time-waster, then this game is okay.

    These are all my opinions.
