    Ok looks pretty good.

    Anyone who bought it have any thoughts on it?

    Had it on my Palm. Not too great. Those guys didn't even bother to update anything, it looks and probably plays just like it did a million years ago when it first came out.... But whatever, I've gotten it once, I probably won't again. It definitelly isn't bad, it just feels outdated compared to other games on the iPhone (since I remember playing this a long time ago).

    Good buy

    I don't know about this being outdated or not like a previous poster stated but I would suggest a buy on this because it's 3D free roaming and simply the best chopper combat sim available for the iPhone. It's like the game chopper but remixed in 3D with many more weapons available.

    This looks good. Hopefully it plays better than GTS.

    looking at the youtube video, it appears the gfx have received a bit of a boost. Looks like it's not entirely flat as it used to be. If it was £1.59 or less I might be interested. I'll add it to my appsniper :)

    Looks Good

    Just bought it, I'll let everyone know what I think. Seems a little pricey. Hopefully it plays as good as it looks.

    Not yet. It reminds me of Comanche 4 or the _Strike series, like Jungle Strike.

    Screen shots aren't bad the controls suck, pretty much unplayable seems glitchey. Played it for 10 min. became so frustrating that I had to put it down for a bit, played some other games for a while. I"ll give it it another shot later, I"ll let everyone know how it goes. Hopefully I don't throw my iPod across the room. Recommend holding off for right now.

    {UPDATE: 11:15 PM THURSDAY}

    Wanted to let everyone know that Hellfire is working properly, I initially purchased it right off my touch and the controls weren't working. The helicopter would just spin around in circles and the green arrow kept bouncing around. Anyways I purchased some other games tonight, plus I had like four updates waiting for me. So I reconnected to my computer and reinstalled it, everything is good to go, never had any issues like this before always reset my touch after install. Please except my apologies.

    Yes I agree with Triple Beam Dream, controls BLOW!! I have this on my Palm T3 years ago, the controls 'SHOULD' have been better on the ipod touch, but oh well waste of another $5.00 :cool:

    Hmmmmmm..... You guys say it's sh!tty, wonder why the cumulative 5 stars on the appstore. Anyone out in the real world who bought this and likes it? If so is it really a 5 star game? Maybe the 5 star reviews need investigating!

    No.......they game is actually really great.
    It's just not worth the asking price

    I like the controls and the animation (explosions) is good

    it runs very well I havent noticed a hiccup yet

    but I would wait for the inevitable price drop.
