App description: GET TO THE CHOPPAAAAAA!

pocketgamer: "HELI HELL gives you a wall to smash into, over and over again"

More powerful than ever, the enemy has holed up on the Island of Vyllea. And now it's up to you to track him down and destroy all hostile activity.

An increasingly powerful arsenal of weapons is available for blazing a path through the enemy lines.


Heli Hell offers a modern take on the vertical shootem up genre. Both video arcade machine buffs and fans of action and shooting games will definitely be hooked.


- 6 helicopters (and more to come)
- 22 upgradable weapons
- Over 50 different enemy units

IMPORTANT: HELI HELL is compatible with iPad 2 and up, iPhone 4S and up and iPod touch 5th generation. It does NOT run on iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4th generation or iPad 1.

Does remind me of that other Freemium Top-Down Shooter that got that huge among of Timer/iAP. Looking forward to see how the Folks at Bulkypix have managed it

There's no relative touch option - the ship snaps to where you place your finger, and is completely hidden under it...

**if I'm wrong, please correct me, but I can't find an options menu

How does this compare in gameplay to Sky Force? How's the feel of the game so far?

This game is crap. Total and utter crap.
No relative touch controls and your helicopter only seems to to fire when aiming directly at an enemy, not like literally every other shmup I have played where your craft fires continuously.

How does it compare to Skyforce? It doesnt't. Skyforce was an ok shmup, this is nearly unplayable.

I'll stick with the CAVE games, those are still the best shmups on iOS, uncontested.
