One of our favorite games has been Helidroid from MH Production. Over the last year or so, the game has really grown. Right now there are currently 8 different versions available on the Google Play store. One of my favorites is Helidroid Battle 3D.
Today I am looking at Helidroid 3B, which is “simply” part 2 of Helidroid 3. The new game comes with 18 new levels within the same house and environment. This is a free app, but you can help the developer out and remove the ads for $0.99 USD.
As with the other Helidroid games, there is plenty to do. You start off a nice tutorial to familiarize yourself with the controls and game play. In addition to completing each mission, you will want to try and earn up to 3 stars. At the beginning of each level, you will be told the mission parameters and what you need to do to earn the stars.
I definitely am not going win any prizes for fancy flying but I got the missions done. Forgot the stars too! 🙂 As with the other games, I really enjoy this game and am glad to see more content being added. I would not call this an easy game; it is a game of patience and control. You need to keep an eye on what you doing and stick to the mission at hand.
The game comes with three different controls: Tilt, Real, and Easy. I have tried them all and am not sure which I like the most yet. In addition to the controls, you can setup for left-handed mode, increase the FPS, and skip the instructions.
Did I mention there is a secret room you can find in free flight mode, to unlock a new mission? Unfortunately I have not yet found it. Grrrr.
Overall this is a well designed and very enjoyable game. If you like flight similuators and games where you need to complete tasks vs blowing everything up, you need to play Helidroid 3B.
Some of the new levels:
- Get a car at full speed before it falls into the pool
- Chase the birds that are introduced into your home
- Find your keys in the dark with a searchlight
- Take some water in the bath and go extinguish the candles
- Landing on a moving ship
