Hmm, is there some problem with the app info not updating or is the delay normal? Can we do something on our end to make it work? - Antti

I've been having a lot of fun with this one. Definitely worth checking out if you have a NZ account.

Pretty solid also sometimes I`m having a hart time to realize why my Choppa isn`t capeable to move forward in front of those Windmashines. Do I need in those cases to upgrade my Choppa so it does have a stronger Engine or is there something else I haven`t noticed yet how to get passed those windmashines

Sidenote:

windwarz, you did post the complete wrong Game Video, check your Link again !

This is pretty cool, I really like the pixel art and the explosions!

Some notes:

The app icon and the opening screen are terrible! The art style looks almost amateur and has nothing to do with the actual in-game graphics (thankfully!).

I'm playing on an iPad mini and I wish there was an alternate control method where I didn't have to move my fingers all the way up and down the screen to control the chopper. I like the simple controls, but on a bigger screen I think buttons or a virtual joystick would work better.

Hey Sanuku and thanks for the feedback! Those turbines may need some fine tuning, but you're on the right track about upgrading the engine. Also the bigger choppers have bigger engines by default.

The turbines should however also be passable with the regular chopper and no upgrades. It might a bit unclear that you can also go under them, have you tried this?

Thank you also hvianna and windwarz for your input, it is really appreciated!

Hi everyone!

We updated Choppa today with a new tutorial and coin doubler features. You can find the coin doubler from the chopper selection screen. In addition lots of nasty bugs have been squashed. The update should be live on both App Store and Google Play.

We were also asked to make the game work on iOS7 devices so we lowered the requirement. Please report to androidsupport@partagames.com or iossupport@partagames.com if you have any problems. Thanks for playing!
