Helicopter Game Instructions
Out of all the helicopter games that I have played, Helicopter Game has the simplest and most straightforward control scheme. No buttons to press, no frantic clicking needed - all you have to do is know when to hold on to that left click button and when to release it. Sheesh! What could be harder than that? If you're still having a hard time with such a control scheme, may I suggest a slower game? Anyway, let's check it out!

So you are on the hunt for helicopter games that are VERY simple to play? Those that are fast paced and fun enough to keep boredom at bay during a gloomy and rainy afternoon? Yeah? If that's the case, Helicopter Game - a classic just in case you haven't heard of it, is one that you should give a try.
Now, as for the authors of the game, I'm not so sure if their brains' creativity was suffering on the day they developed the game. Think about it - Helicopter Game, I'm sure you can come up with a much more creative and enticing game name! Also, the controls of the game are very simple: just hold on to the mouse's left click button to go up, and release it to go down. The game takes care of the helicopter's forward movement.
Bells and whistles - nah, this game doesn't have any of those...zero, zilch, naddah. On the brighter side of things, though, by stripping all of those bells and whistles, and intentionally being 'un-creative', the game developers created a helicopter game that's fast paced and exciting. After all, that's what we are looking for in a game, right?
The idea is to stay alive as long as you can to score as many points as possible. Again, the game's authors and developers kept it simple. You need to dodge those blocks of stone suspended in mid air and steer clear from the ceiling and floor. And you do this by maneuvering your helicopter up and down.
That on its own doesn't make the game exciting. BUT toss in the fact that your helicopter has a speed of a jet creates a different story. Yes, when you hold on the to left click button, it goes up like a rocket-propelled air craft. Release that left click button and your helicopter dives at neck breaking speed.
Do any of those actions longer than you should and you will find your helicopter crashing against either the floor or the ceiling quicker than you can say: "I love helicopter games!"
To make the game even more challenging, there are a lot of obstacles along the way. Blocks of stones of different shapes and sizes are scattered all over the place - leaving you with an unforgiving terrain where the slighest mistake in timing and maneuvering could spell doom. Oh! By the way, you only have one life in the game.
Forget about life bars or the usual 3 to 5 lives like in most helicopter games. Crash and its game over. You have to start from square one. You just got to admire the game developer's 'creativity'. Well, so much for bashing the 'genuises' behind Helicopter Game.
It's fun, fast paced, and will drive you to the edge of your seats in an effort to beat the top scorer. That's all there is to it. And that's exactly what you need to brighten up your otherwise boring day.
