New SkylineBlade Shots

Our next release SkylineBlade is nearly ready for upload to the App Store. We're putting the finishing touches on the graphics, story, and mission structure. This is a 3D helicopter Sim with a fantastic new control scheme that allows for some fairly complex gameplay, hardware buttons not required.

This title is aimed at gamers who really want a 3D Heli Sim that feels like a Helicopter but also offers some goals and action. If you were disappointed in X-Plane Helicopter's lack of things to do or Hellfire's lack of a flight model then SkylineBlade is for you.

The game will debut at $0.99 hopefully next week. The gameplay begins with training and leads into urban combat. All the missions include achievement medals to be won from Bronze to Gold. There are some secret goodies being thrown in as well

That's fairly aggressive pricing.

1. Is there an alternate view besides the cockpit view? Perhaps "View" implies this?

2. How many missions are in the game?

3. Is this a first iteration release with several updates pending?

4. Gameplay video?

5. What exactly is that carmel matrix in the background?

Yeah, I meant both viewpoints. Guess I wasn't very clear.

That music isn't part of the game

As for the other questions, the enemy types aren't finalized yet but tanks, other choppers, and jets are all prototyped. A lot will come down to the flow of the game. Whatever feels solid and balanced will remain.

As for the aggresive pricing, this game is the opening chapter of a larger universe based around Skyline and its advanced flight technology. In the future more vehicles, weapons, and full campaigns will be part of the series (if it's well recieved). That said this game does offer several hours of quality gameplay within the Skyline proving ground.

The game will recieve updates based on feedback.
