    So, I'm sure that everyone here is familiar with the classic icopter games. There are tons of them in the app store. But instead of looking at one of those, I'm going to look at a cool twist on this old game. icopter 3D.

    Icopter 3D
    Category: Games
    Released: Apr 24, 2009
    Seller: Inner four, Inc
    Version: 1.0
    16.8 MB

    PRICE: $0.99

    So when you open the app you get the control screen here.

    It gives you a few seconds to look at them and then it takes you to the menu screen.

    At the menu screen you can do a lot of things. you can start the game in either normal mode or practice, You can change the sound options, and you can see the high scores for your device.
    So, the point of the game, like the original icopter, is to see hoe far into the cave you can get without hitting the walls. The only difference, is the game is in complete 3D. You steer by tilting the phone and you go up and down by pressing the up and down arrows. This is much simpler than it sounds.

    There are two modes in the game, practice mode, and normal mode. In normal mode, its just the normal game. you blow up if you hit the walls, and you try to see how far you can get. Practice mode, however, you are invincible. There are a lot of things you can do that you can in normal mode such as go down a hole and come out outside the game.

    One of the worst things about the game is that when you get to a certain point.... This checkered box that can almost bee seen in this picture...

    This is the end of the course. Oh don't worry, it's not as if you beat the game, but all it does is take you back to the beginning, only this time it's faster.

    Here are some more screen shots for the game.

    And now for my overall scores.

    Sounds:
    5/10 - All that there is for sounds is the whirring of the helicopter and some horror music..... Strange....
    Controls 9/10 - Very good controls for a 3D game on a full touch screen.
    Gameplay 7/10 - The level that you play on just loops so it gets repetitive, but its still fun.
    Graphics 8/10 - FULL 3D!!!!! Sometimes when you get too close to the walls you can see through them, but the graphics are still great.

    OVERALL 6/10 - It trys hard to be good, but it just doesn't really make the worth $0.99 list

    Not a bad first review. Check your spelling etc before you post and also work on the presentation - leave line gaps between the text and screenshots.

    the game looks bad in terms of graphics.

    Question: so basically is this just iCopter but in 3D?

    Review was great though.

    You know, the game is actually kinda fun when you get into it. I found it on appsniper in it's free streak
    So it's not worth 0.99, but it's a great game if you can get it when its free
