Trapped in a underground fortress, 4 scientists are waiting to be rescued by you, the armies most skilled helicopter pilot. If all the blockades, laser cannons and misile turrets are not enough, the swift rescue of the scientists is also hindered by the complex layout of the fortress itself, requiring impressive navigational skills. Fortunately you have your SX-4096 helicopter to aid you in your quest.


Rescue the 4 scientists scattered around the fortress. Use the radar (bottom right) to find them. The game is over when all your helicopters are lost.

Use W, S, A and D keys move the helicopter.
Use SPACE to fire the onboard cannon.

What a great game. Superb! Explosions! Cannon turrets! Missiles! Bullets! Laser defense grid! wow... so many things packed into one small game :) Great job. The rendering is a bit jerky though. Have you tried g.translate() instead of casting coordinates to int? It can handle floats and delivers smoother rendering.

Lovely, though it is strange how the radar moves about.
