    {Intro}
    I used to have this game, but I deleted it about a month ago. Then, this morning I was browsing the app store, and I spotted icopter. I downloaded it, took some screenshots, and now I am writing the review.

    {About}
    When you open icopter, you get the main menu

    -New Game-

    {Gameplay/Controls}
    First you touch he screen to start a game. Then, basically, you touch the screen for the copter to go up, let go for it to go down. The gravity controls how fast the copter goes down. This is probably the simplest game you will ever play on the iPod/iPhone. There are obstacles that you must go over and under, and if you touch the obstacles, you crash, and it is game over. Like I said, the controls are very simple, so no matter what age you are, you can just pick up this game and get into it instantly.

    {Graphics}
    The graphics are very good, and kind of like an old arcade. I love the games with graphics like this. They look awesome. One thing though, the copter looks new and realistic, while the surroundings look old and everything is made up of bars.

    {Audio}
    No audio at all. There is no music or sound effects. Although, you can listen to your own music, and that is pretty much what I do with all games. I was kind of dissapointed. The least Smackall Games could do was add a few beeps or a "game over" sound.

    {Finale Thoughts}
    iCopter is a very fun game in short periods. It is not a game you play for an hour, more like five minutes. It's so simple, iCopter can sometime get boring. I delete free games almost every day. This is one of the games that I have deleted and then downloaded again about five times. I always want to come back for more.

    -Pros-
    1. Online high scores
    2. Different colors for surroundings.
    3. >>FREE<<

    -Cons-
    1. No audio
    2. Can’t play long without getting tired of it
    3. Has ads

    {Ratings}
    Gameplay/Controls: 9/10 Sweet and simple
    Graphics: 8/10 Like an arcade
    Audio: 5/10 None
    Replay Value: 8/10 Can’t play for long, but it is good in short spurts

    {Overall: 7.5/10}

    I like the original 59p/99c one better, because its easier to control, smoother, and more original. Plus there are no ads.

    Anyway, good review, but a little short. Then again, the concept of the game is so simple that there is only so much you can write.

    The review is very brief, so you should go back and write some more content for each section. Add details of the app, as well as what you think about them. Also, concentrate on capitalization and punctuation in the correct places. Another thing, space out your photos (they are pushed up against the text).

    Your review looks short, try merging things together like the menu into one gif and combining the one-liners about it.
