Both had severe control issues with me. Couldn't get either to fly but a few seconds before crashing into something.

Edit: Tried the iCopter Free game not the paid one which I believe is by another dev that your referring too.

99 cents is barely a price to pay for a tru classic!

the free one is so stupid, i played for at least 2 minutes and there was no challenge at all, so i deleted it... at least have it get hard very quickly, so i can play a couple of quick games if i want

I liked iCopter. The free one, not so much. I'd go with iCopter.

perhaps you are talking about the second one free that came out (iCopter Classic). The first one (Copter Free) is actually challenging, but you have to wait 4 seconds after each game and it's quite annoying.

Most games that cost money and have free counterparts are better...you get what you pay for. There are a few exceptions, but I have noticed that I only have maybe 3 free games on my iDevice now. I just don't play them.
