Recruiting Beta Testers for The Helicopter!

Hi everyone!

We're developing a helicopter side-scroller, inspired by iCopter. We thought that the game might be more fun with really great graphics, cool sounds, etc..

Here's a current screenshot:


Here's one of our latest demo videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_FSdiwVhwg

We're ready to start testing the app with a larger pool of people and we need about 50 beta testers. Right now we're trying to get feedback on three things:

1. How are the tapping controls? Should they be more/less sensitive?
2. How does the gravity feel when the helicopter falls? Should it be weaker/stronger?
3. Can you find any bugs?

Of course, general feedback is always appreciated!

If you would like to test, please sign up on TestFlight: http://tflig.ht/mSSRqn

We'd also be forever grateful if you visit our Facebook page and website:

Thanks!

Hi Andrew, we received your info and you're on our list! Once I upload the next build of the game, you'll receive an email and you'll be able to download the game! Our next build should be uploaded today or tomorrow.

Thanks!

Thanks everyone!

Hey guys, thanks for signing up! We're already receiving killer feedback from the few testers that got the first build.

We're adjusting the control sensitivity and gravity a bit to make the helicopter control easier (hopefully). I'll add all of the new testers who have signed up into this next build!

Please don't forget to like us on Facebook if you can! www.Facebook.com/TheHelicopterApp

Bump #3!

WE STILL HAVE 26 SPOTS OPEN FOR BETA TESTERS!

I'm submitting a new build right now that has improved gravity and control sensitivity based on our current testers' feedback. Please sign on and let us know what you think!

Also, that pause button from above is now integrated into the latest build
