Third Attack

Heli Attack 3 is a great online game by squarecircleco that deserves a test-drive by any online gamer. Ranked #1 on (even months after its release) it ranks high in user satisfaction. In this article I will examine how it differs from its prequel, Heli Attack 2.

First of all, you will immediatly notice the dramatic improvements on the graphics engine. Recoil effects, extensive rotation features, and alpha effects together create a very nice gaming environment, while maintaining the old feel of the game.

You'll also notice the much better range of weapons available. Sniper rifles, chainguns, and double shotguns (plus more) are added to the already plentiful arsenal such as firemines, Uzis and shotgun rockets (plus more!)

Another great feature is a "story" mode, that (thankfully) hides the actual story from the player (who wants to read that boring stuff about saving the world, anyway?) This feature did not exist in Heli Attack 2, the only way of playing being blowing up helicopters and surviving as long as you could.

There are also new enemies as well, and several varieties of helicopters. All of them are robots this time, some with big turrets, all with different ways of attacking as well as different weapons.

The movement has been greatly improved, with the addition of climbing certain walls and crawling while maintaining old favorites like hyperjumping and time warps. There are also alot more time-altering tactics.

All in all, Heli Attack 3 is a beautifully rendered online game that is loads of fun to play, and worth your wasting a few hours (or days) on.

It's a platformer.
