Ok looks pretty good.

Anyone who bought it have any thoughts on it?

Had it on my Palm. Not too great. Those guys didn't even bother to update anything, it looks and probably plays just like it did a million years ago when it first came out.... But whatever, I've gotten it once, I probably won't again. It definitelly isn't bad, it just feels outdated compared to other games on the iPhone (since I remember playing this a long time ago).

Good buy

I don't know about this being outdated or not like a previous poster stated but I would suggest a buy on this because it's 3D free roaming and simply the best chopper combat sim available for the iPhone. It's like the game chopper but remixed in 3D with many more weapons available.

Palm edition still sells for $9.99

Note the screen shots from the Palm OS (480 x 320) version. I am not yet convinced that the iphone version has significantly improved graphics

This looks good. Hopefully it plays better than GTS.

looking at the youtube video, it appears the gfx have received a bit of a boost. Looks like it's not entirely flat as it used to be. If it was 1.59 or less I might be interested. I'll add it to my appsniper

Looks Good

Just bought it, I'll let everyone know what I think. Seems a little pricey. Hopefully it plays as good as it looks.
