What's the difference between the FREE and paid version? This also just looks like the same game as Gunship II.

Honestly, it would be nice if "APACHE", "CHAOS HD", and "GUNSHIP II" combined and focused on a good multiplayer experience. Too many flight sims leaving you wanting. Or use the new mobile frostbite and bring us Battlefield Bad Company - "Chopper Wars".

Aerofly FS is another example of a great idea that came up short on content. Love the cockpit views, but for God's sake, let the machine gun fire.

Answer: I tried the free version, it gets only the first two missions, transporting troops and stuff to one point to another.

Confused: on the first mission, after I land on the carrier, there is no message whatsoever if I have completed my mission or what I should do next. What should do?

Appreciation: Other than the above issue and lack of atmosphere, the scaling of the 3D world and the dashboard are really well done. I really like the 3D cockpit with working instruments and some good feeling (I have not flown the real thing to see if it it authentic) of flying.

Complaint: the game is about choppers in the era but the icon and splash screen show jets, they are very misleading!

Knocking: developer, hello?

Observation: by reading the app description of Gunship II, I see there has been promised of addition content of the previous incarnation, but instead, we get this...with the same promise...I am on hold with my $$$
