EDIT: No worries. The game looks like retro fun. I might give it a try.

(GC = BUNGLEZ) (OF = farmersuitical) (Plus+ = bungle747) (Crystal = bunglez)

I review apps and games frequently in the UK app store, and here on the forums. If you want anything reviewed, just ask.

Thanks to our fan, MappyMousePD, for coming up with the official Helicopters in Space! story!

In the future, Earth is under attack by hordes of interstellar monsters. They've already destroyed our satellites, planes and space shuttles. Our only hope is to use helicopters equipped with special technology that allows them to fly in space. Are you bad enough to pilot these helicopters in space and save the planet from aliens?

Screen-shots look awful to be honest, I'll pass.

Sorry to hear that Bluewomble. You work hard for your money and I definitely respect your decision.

May I ask what you didn't like about them?

The art work just doesn't appeal to me and the game looks like it's a simple matter of going up and down and shooting things. I used to play games like this on mobile phones about 4 years ago but a lot has happened since then. Seems very basic in a world where you can get Angry Birds and Street Fighter 4 for the same price.
