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 cross-platform, and the iOS and Android versions are out this Thursday. The Mac version will be out as soon as I can get it through the Mac App Store. I hope you like it! :D

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

* Super-responsive controls, best played with a controller, but keys are good too!

* High quality graphical shaders, (check this!).
* Minimal load times.
* Instant Restart, for when you're trying to beat your best times.
* 48 levels, split into three difficulty modes.

Well, it's launched on iOS and Android. I hope to have this submitted some time next week. I have no idea how long it takes to appear in the store though!
