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

The update will fix it - that is the only thing that is left to be done before we are submitting the update.

Definitely enjoying this game, my only complaint would be that there is a line where exploration for the mission targets stops being fun and becomes frustrating. Been looking for some oil rigs for a little over an hour now, the helicopter is fully upgraded and its been about 40 minutes since I last saw a green blip on my radar.


Still is a fun game though heh. Question, are all the achievements for time flying?

I seemed to lose my save after updating... I'm not too bothered about starting over but you might want to look into it.

I can even say losing saves during update probably makes us even much more sad then a player may be about that bug We will be inverstigating the issue on monday, when one of our devs comes back from his short vacation. Unfortunately, the time frame in which we can release a fix, including app store approval cycle, takes too long - by our stats, by now almost all users have already updated.

P.S. Are there any other bugs?

P.P.S. Shortly we are starting working on a new, free version of Pilot's Path. It won't be just a cut copy of the paid PP - there will be a small new location and a short story. I hope existing players will enjoy it as well.

P.P.P.S. In parallel we are working on a new big location for the original PP, and on a different game with guns and shooting.

The key to exploraion is remembering that other islands are usually in a radar sight of some other islands - feeling stuck try flying around other islands (look at the map fog of war).

Yep.

A short announce:

Free/Lite version of Pilot's Path is set to be released tonight:
https://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/pilots-path-lite/id586096576?ls=1&mt=8

The lite version is free with NO any IAP.

In the same time an update to the original Pilot's Path goes live - fixes savegame compatibility.

The lite version has a slightly different map and contains 2 quests that are different from the paid version, so, if you own one, you may want the lite version too.

The lite game version is fully technically packed and allows you to check out the optimized gaming experience to play on iPad using iPhone/iPod as a wireless joystick controller (if you own two devices).

If you are a lucky owner of Apple TV or using one of many software solutions to receive AirPlay streams on your Mac of PC (AirServer, AirPlayer, etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AirPlay), you can output game video to your TV, monitor or projector and enjoy your single or pair of devices as controllers too.
