About the game
Was it 20 or 25 years ago when Helicopter game first appeared? or probably even earlier. Most people remember playing this game on Atari 7800 gaming console, (8 bit gaming system). The game was extremely popular back then, so popular that millions of people all over the world remember it even today. There are lots of retro games out there people still remember and love like Pac Man, Battleship game, Space Invaders etc. Old timers often say “they don’t make games like this anymore” and at some point it is true. Gaming industry today is completely different from what it used to be. Back then, developers actually cared about game being enjoyable. Today, most developers and publishers care about how the game is going to look like on commercials, can’t really blame them though, but sucks for gamers. But the thing is, making great games and making them look good don’t really contradict each other and yet…
Gameplay vs Graphics is a global issue, people used to argue about it since Atari and other 8 Bit gaming systems and always will but mostly because some people just interpret the word gameplay wrongly. In “English” gameplay is just a measure of fun, which means, arguing about this is pretty much pointless; people advocating for gameplay and the ones advocating for graphics are both right and wrong at same time; simply put, original and beautifully drawn game world and environment, can be responsible for exciting gameplay and on the other hand, game may have shallow graphics but challenging and addicting game mechanics. The reason why Helicopter game was, is and always will be so popular is its challenging nature; you can never have enough of it and you always strive to achieve better results, challenging friends to see who can score higher. The game is incredibly addictive just like the other retro games listed above. It’s only logical people transported this game to flash platform, thousands and thousands of people looking for this game online even today.
