HeliAssault Walkthrough

HeliAssault is that kind of helicopter game that doesn't really lend itself to the description of fun. You control a helicopter that flies itself on suicide missions against some unknown evil aeroplane. Is this aeroplane actually evil? Is it a missionary? Does it carry passengers? These questions are not answered in the slightest. No, you're paid to bomb these planes out of the sky, regardless of their origins. First time playing, I crashed and died in 0.4 seconds. Why? I didn't hold the up key. Very important key to staying alive; hold up. Release it when you want to go down to either a) shoot your target or b) grab a power-up. Otherwise, keep your finger (or a mechanical weight) on that key.

You have limited ammo, though at the start of the game it's really pointless, so feel free to waste as much as you want in wanton destruction. When each target is killed, you have the option of upgrading parts to do more damage, keeping the game looking fresh. You earn money to upgrade by killing enemy planes, grabbing floating money clips, and completing levels.

A few notes about your helicopter itself in this game; you can crash into enemy planes without too much damage. At first, you can only shoot straight to the right. And lastly, if you forgot to hold the up arrow key, and you go too low and touch the tip of a building, the helicopter completely self-destructs and ends your game. Traumatic, isn't it? Make sure you avoid that kind of death! This game is improved in the next installment, HeliAssault Redux.
