Helidroid 3D – Helicopter remote controlled simulator adventure game!
Oct 18, 2012 10:00 AM –
Helidroid 3D is a sumptuously visualized remote controlled helicopter simulator that gets you to delicately control a cool toy chopper. The heli comes with some great features and two different control methods. The game includes loads of challenging missions and some impressive graphics.
Tested on: HTC One X
Pros & Cons:
- Brilliant graphics!
- Two methods of control!
- Lots of missions!
- The accelerometer control is the most intuitive (in my opinion), but it would be nice to tweak the sensitivity a little.
Helidroid 3D is a fantastically fun remote control simulation which has you piloting a small helicopter around a bedroom. There are loads of different tasks to complete- from early landing and flying through hoops to firing rockets and manoeuvring through narrow channels. The game provides lots of different missions and gameplay remains fresh due to the variety of tasks you are required to perform.
The first thing about the game that grabs you is the fluid graphics and smooth 3D environment, it really is stunning and nicely detailed. The rooms are expansive and can be explored although you are always against the clock and therefore under some pressure to complete the task to earn end of level stars.
A great feature is the ability to choose between first and third person views. This means you can sit right in the cockpit of the helicopter if you want to! I tried both these views out and actually found them both very good. I found myself choosing between them depending on the nature of the task required.
Another user-friendly choice the game offers is whether to use accelerometer ‘Gyro’ controls or an on screen thumb pad. I personally tended to prefer the Gyro controls as I found them a tad more intuitive, however the sensitivity is very high and sometimes tricky to control. While sometimes this sensitivity can work in your favor it can lead to some clumsy movements.

What isn’t fun about flying a cool helicopter around?! Helidroid 3D is a thoroughly enjoyable little game with stunning graphics and diverse levels of gameplay.
Many of the levels ‘look’ far easier than they actually are. This means if you fail (and you will!) you quickly want to try again. So, while it’s not as painfully addictive as any of the Angry Birds series, it still keeps you coming back for more.
The graphics are extremely impressive and smooth. The way you glide flawlessly around the room is really good and the environment contains lots of animations and additional elements.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The accelerometer, in my opinion, tended to be a little bit too sensitive, but you can opt to try out the thumb pad controls which might suit you better. I wasn’t a big fan of the music- it reminded me of those mindless corporate training videos anyone in a large office has at some point been subjected to. The good news is you can switch this off.
