    Not sure if you can beat the actual iCopter game, but at least yours is free. :)

    This is why I never delete certain games right away. Will give it another try and a updated review after the new update is installed.

    First impressions

    New icon

    I hate this one
    Hate it. No artist just a screenshot pretty much. Change the icon. Hold a contest here to do it.
    Fix the way the name shows up on the idevice. Make it copter or classic or like that.
    Next slow the game down a bit and give the user a chance to get ready before the platforms come flying in. Second fix the backround stuff. Etheir make it all one color or let the user create their own.
    Make there be wilder turns. Currently there just subtle.
    It seems I die whenever I get close to objects not touch them. It makes it immposible to fit small spaces.
    Make the copter smaller and let him move up and down a bit faster.
    Change coptor look.
    Now you need to add something to make u different then icopter.

    I played it, and it was okay.
    I don't have any other copter games to compare to so here are my suggestions.

    -It seems way too easy. Maybe multiple difficulties could be added.
    -It is REALLY slow. This could be fixed with the above suggestion.
    -It seems that the copter extends a couple pixels past what is actually there; sometimes I come really close to the blocks and clearly not touching them, it registers a hit.

    This is what I can think of after playing it for a bit.
    It's good for free though.

    Edit: I agree with the icon suggestion from above. The icon name DOES need a change. It just bugs me when the name is iCopt...assic and such.

    I also find it zoomed in a bit to much.
    My high score is 211.

    Don't be so rough on the dev. He's open to suggestions so let's tone it down.

    Guess its time to re-download this and give it a try.

    Ok........tried it. Didn't take long because I couldn't get too far. I'm really trying to like this game cuz like the retro-ish look. But the update does seem to have gotten the copter going at an unplayable rate. Really think if this was fixed it would be a pretty good game. I do like the way the way the controls are set up....but just not functional at this time with the high rate speed of game.

    In case some trying to play this game w/o reading about the controls here it is:
    Touching the screen will accelerate the helicopter to move up and releasing the touch will drop the copter down.

    Got faith that it will turn into a good game. Thanks for keeping at it by the way.

    one thing the icopter(one dollar) did amazingly is it gave you time to get ready before the platforms started coming. it gave you a couple of seconds. one thing to do now is to give the user time before the platforms comes at you. it will appear slower and make it easier.

    next, you want to fix the icon and the way the name shows up on the idevice
    next, slow it down and zoom it out a little
    make the copter look better its ugly and annoying now
    make the backrounds a solid color
    fix the bug where it hits the platform before it really does
