    This game is based off of the helicopter game by seethru.co.uk. Your objective is to avoid hitting any of the blocks.

    The controls are simple.

    Up- Go up
    A- Shoot

    This is my first game for the Ds so it may be glitchy. Post here if you find any.

    Yeah I'm no artist... I should probably find a better sprite.

    Difficult, but addicting. Couldn't get past a single one of those red blocks!

    Randomized layout is nice.

    There really isn't a finish to it. You just try to get your score as high as possible.

    xD I must have horribly lame coordination, I can't seem to get a very high score (only like 2100+). Either that or I just haven't played for long enough (maybe like 5 minutes xD).

    The top and bottom blocks gradually get closer together as your score goes up. It gets very narrow at 2100.

    lol, it looks nice though i think that the blue "bricks" should be replaced with some
    coral reef floors/ceilings and etc. [​IMG] it would make a bit more sense xD.

    Well the problem is I lack any artistic ability. If anyone would want to help me with the sprites it would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    I think you should go with the original green design and then add on option to use different skins etc

    I should put in an easy and hard mode. A lot of people are finding it too hard.

    Did you make that? It looks nice and scaled down nicely. [​IMG]
    I will add the credit to the first post.

    Thanks, I'm working on making it into an icon for the game

    do you want to just put in the helicopter as the icon or do you want any writing by it??

    I can just use the helicopter as the icon. I can also replace my (crappy) spaceship/submarine with it. I will give you credit of course.

    Ok, I have added the helicopter into the game. Thanks alidsl, I will upload the new version tomorrow.

    I have updated the file with the new helicopter.

    Here is a screen shot:

    (I animated it so I'm sorry if I didn't do a very good job.)

    I am now working on adding in different skins and a menu.
