Chopper Mike

Hi, I'm Jamie, the one-man team behind Chopper Mike, a charming, fast-paced, arcade helicopter time trial game featuring super smooth graphics and amazing controls. It's out this Thursday!! I hope you like it! :D

PC, Mac, Ouya: soon after.

Price
iOS and Android: 1.49, ($1.99).
PC, Mac, and Ouya: TBA, (but will be about the same as iOS & Android).

Features
* Super-responsive controls, "Very impressed by the on-screen buttons in @jamielowesdev's Chopper Mike for iOS. I normally HATE these control methods.".
* 60 frames per second refresh on most devices, (e.g. iPhone 4S+, iPhone 4 is 30fps).
* High quality graphical shaders, (check this!).
* Minimal load times.
* GameCenter leaderboards and Acheivements.
* Instant Restart, for when you're trying to beat your best times.

Oh, didn't notice there was a thread in upcoming iPhone and iPod touch games. Anyway, it does look really neat! Good luck!

Edit: will it be universal?

Yeah, I checked with a mod whether it was okay to post in all four threads. I didn't get an answer, so I guess that's a yes!

And thank you!
