Helidroid Battle: 3D RC Copter. Play the sequel with one-on-one combat!
Feb 26, 2013 8:23 AM –
Helidroid Battle: 3D RC Copter is the sequel to Helidroid 3D: RC Helicopter which we reviewed back in October. In this exciting update, instead of just flying around obstacles, you now face-off in one-on-one RC helicopter combat. It’s epic stuff too, as your enemies get progressively more aggressive and stronger. If you enjoyed the first game, this takes gameplay to a new level.
Tested on: Nexus 4
Pros & Cons:
- Great 3D graphics!
- 3 models of helicopter to fly!
- 3 rooms to fly around in!
- 30 objectives to complete!
- Endless gameplay!
- A tad fiddly to control at first, although you soon get used to it.
In a nutshell, Helidroid Battle: 3D RC Copter is all about frantic one-on-one helicopter battles. Take charge of your copter either using on screen or tilt controls and do whatever you can to take out the other helicopter in the room. Enemies get faster, more accurate and more manoeuvrable as you progress through the levels. All you have to do to complete the level is defeat the enemy!
The game is based on small remote control helicopters to environments are typically domestic; bedroom, living room and kitchen. The graphics are bright, 3D and very smooth. Although some of the visuals perhaps lack some detail, it still makes things incredibly immersive. I especially like going into first person (cockpit) mode. Oddly, I found the onscreen controls more intuitive than the tilt controls- which is the opposite of how I found the first game.
The game is fun and very rewarding when you are able to take down an enemy helicopter. There are some 30 achievements to complete which involve all kinds of feats- such as using only rockets or not losing any life.
This update, with its intense battling, brings a whole new dynamism to the original title’s gameplay. It’s more fun, riskier and arguably more pumped with adrenaline. Whereas manoeuvring around obstacles was fun, shooting things out of the sky betters the experience. If you enjoyed the first game, be absolutely sure to try this out. It’s free and massively playable to get it downloaded!

The game is lot of fun and arguably more enjoyable that it’s predecessor. At first it’s not particularly ‘easy’ to fly but with a little patience, you pick it up quite quickly. Any 3D game means you have to move in different directions and the 360 degree nature of Helidroid Battle: 3D RC Copter means that learning the ropes is essential to ultimately enjoying the game. Once you’ve mastered it, it’s lots of fun.
When you lose, it often feels a little unjust. This generally makes you want to have ‘one more go’ and this can inevitably lead to longer periods of gameplay. The game has plenty of stages and cool achievements to complete, so it has a good level of longevity.
The graphics are smooth, bright and beautifully 3D. The images perhaps do lack a bit of detail compared to other 3D games we can find in the Google Play Store, but this doesn’t detract too much from the gameplay.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
One thing that features in this game is the sensitivity of controls. This is great for adjusting the setting on the accelerometer and makes using tilt control easier. That said, I did find the onscreen controls a little easier… but that could just be me.
