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

Yep, no combat.

Save and rescue (SAR) missions instead.

The fun is in controls and flying - if you have both iPad and iPhone/iPod, it fun to use play wirelessly on iPad using iPhone/iPod as a remote.

Spoiler:


Gives free upgrades in return - one upgrade for each gift.

If you start new game - restoring purchases gives you all the free upgrades in a new game.

However, IAP is not really necessary - the game is quite playable without IAP.

Bought it. I like the idea. I hope it's as great as you guys are making it seem EDIT: I've been playing a bit this last hour and I love the idea. Relaxed missions where you have to find objects/people the boss wants, but also controlling the fuel you have left, the helicopter's integrity, the height at which you fly, cargo space left and many other factors. Just great, and with random maps it means loads of replayability.

I think that the absence of a machine gun nor any kind of violence (aside from crashing the heli) is great, because it lets you concentrate in the sim factors of the game which I mentioned before. I don't regret the $1 spent on it. I hope the game sells, honestly.

Good game, really has that old school vibe and not just retro fashioned graphics. I was a bit worried about no combat but works fine without.

My only complaint would be things seem too zoomed out on a third gen iPad when compared to the screenshots, is there any way to adjust this? It kills a bit of the character.

Enjoying it though, nice work

Hey devs, some questions:

1. What are the IAP "gifts" supposed to do? Cheaper objects? A new helicopter? Maybe you could clear it out so that we can decide if we buy them or not.

2. How do you open new scenearios? I only have the 1st one unlocked (jungle, I think).

Btw: I'm enjoying the game a lot at the moment. Very zen and great for quick plays

As far as I know, a "gift" simply gives you a free upgrade. It's just something I've heard from another player though, so I'm not certain.

And as for scenarios, I'm pretty sure you unlock them once you finish the jungle. Still haven't quite got up to that point yet though.
