Pilot’s Path is an old school, open world helicopter simulator where you’ll play as a dishonorably discharged USAF ace pilot. Without anywhere else to turn, you’ll delve deep into a criminal underworld where kingpins and drug lords will call upon your expert services to deliver certain... illicit goods. Make them angry and it’ll be more than your career that’s dead.

Most folks don’t feel secure unless they have both feet planted firmly on solid ground. Long flights just aren’t comfortable, and turbulence makes them feel sick. But you’re different. You’re an artist in a helicopter, and the skies are your canvas. Making a quick buck by slinging goods for the highest bidder, exploring the world from high up in your cockpit, and living life by your own rules - that’s the Pilot’s Path. So throw away your standard issue pilots’ handbook and pump up the throttle.

The world is your oyster...
• The world of Pilot's Path is unpredictable
• Randomly generated maps for each new game
• Explore over 50 islands in 2 huge locations
• Collect and sell items from across the archipelagos to make more money
• Visit the mechanic to make improvements to your helicopter
• Increase hull integrity, fuel capacity, speed, radar capabilities, and more
• Plenty of missions to keep you occupied

Unparalleled, engaging design...
• Joystick controls that make flying your helicopter easy and intuitive
• Beautifully rendered cut scenes
• Unique retro design maximized for retina and full HD displays

Enjoy the flight with an optimized gaming experience...
• Control remotely with another iOS device (via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth)
• Play on a TV or a projector (HDMI, Airplay, VGA, RCA supported)
• Configurable TV resolution
• Full HD and other resolutions supported
• Simple, super easy TV and remote setup
• Game Center achievements
• Universal app, optimized for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

Is it just me, or is this a Desert/Jungle/Urban Strike clone with randomly generated maps?

Unfortunately, it looks like Pilot's Path is missing the one key ingredient that made those games fun... blowing stuff up!

Christ, they actually refer to her as "the sexy mechanic"?

At the same time I do kind of like the art style in this, whereas normally I can't stand most games that do the retro look. Ordinarily it just strikes me as lazy but this, along with a randomly generated world... Might give it a shot.

I must agree, yet to me it's more like a game I player back in 1990th on ZX Spectrum. We played it with my neighbor and his brother in turns While one played, others were drinking tee...

Wow, it's basically a modern update on the 8-bit classic Raid on Bungeling Bay by Broderbund, but.. without the shooting?

Is there absolutely no combat? Does it work okay without?
