You may not believe this, but flying an attack helicopter into battle doesn’t require a bunch of training. All you need is two thumbs and an iPhone or iPad. Well, at least that’s all you need to lead special ops missions in Banzai Labs’ doodle-style arcade game, Gunship Commandos.
In the game you get to pilot one of two attack helicopters, both of which are equipped with missiles and four-man special ops teams. You’re required to take your helicopter into battle to accomplish specific objectives without getting taken down or hurting civilians. Depending on the situation, you may just want to stay in the air to blast away your enemies, or you can dismount your team of four and take them out on foot.
An on-screen joystick on the left side of the screen controls your helicopter’s movements, while another stick on the right controls your team’s direction of fire. You’re able to launch your missiles via a button next to the right joystick, but keep in mind they only fire directly forward.
Dismounting your special ops team is as simple as tapping the “down arrow” button on the left side of the screen. At this point your helicopter is a sitting duck, but you can guide your team all around the screen by drawing lines, and tap and drag your finger across the screen to direct their fire. Landing your helicopter also allows you to pick up civilians, which is not only sweet of you, but also allows you to earn bonus points, replenish your health, and replenish your ammo supplies.
Gunship Commandos includes four separate scenarios to take on, two types of aircraft to pilot, more than 15 types of weapons to utilize, stat tracking, and Game Center integration.
