If you get it and test it out and actually like the game, post something. I'm on the fence with this one... but it reminds me of Super Army War (GBA) and it's sequel Glory Days 2 (DS) which I had a good time with.

Sure, I've actually had it for a long time. You control the chopper with a virtual joypad with your left hand. Your other finger shoots to where your right index finger is. There is also a bomb button in the right.

Mainly you fly around shooting at other planes, tanks, soldiers, while evading some birds. You have to go rescue hostages and land and collect them, then take them them to a cabin.

I think the game is worth a buck, it is a sound game, and if you like this genre, you will like the game. It is mission based and has a lot of different things to do.

The things I didn't like about the game is lack of retina ipad graphics and the stuff on the screen is very small. That's why I want to play it on my tv cause non retina ipad games look great on it.

I would recommend the game, especially for a buck.

Ipad side

If any of you were curious what the ipad looks like in console airplay mode, take a look at what the ipad looks like compared to the tv.

Also, this game does not use joypad app. You must have this game both on your iphone and ipad to use your iphone on a joystick.

Airplay is so awesome. Never realized how sweet hdmi would be. Games like Dariusburst, Deathsmiles, alpha zero, Asphalt 7, NfS mist wanted, dang, I like these games better on my ipad vs the xbox due to the touch and tilt controls. An awesome experience.

It's strange that they don't use their own proprietary separate control pad app for this game that's published right next to it on the appstore.
