It’s not everyday that a game as interesting and fun as this one comes up. But then again, interesting and fun doesn’t mean it’s going to be a pleasurable experience. Welcome to Air Transporter, the game that almost made me rip my hair right out of their roots.
The game is simple. Complete lifting tasks with your helicopter and move on to the next level. Well, at least the game sounds simple. Wait till you play. Right from putting out fires to blowing up electric boxes that supply spotlights you need to avoid, this game will never feel mundane.
The game begins easy, mainly to get you accustomed to the controls and physics of the helicopter. But nothing, and I’m serious when I say nothing, will prepare you for the mayhem that ensues level 8 onwards.
The GUI is simply beautiful, elegant, and very user friendly. The game art is really good, too. There’s a nice use of colours and an easily decipherable layout. There’s a choice of controls between the mouse and the keyboard, and both offer very different dynamics. I suggest you try both to see what suits you best.
Also, there’s certain common keyboard controls for the ropes. Practice using the ropes individually well enough before tackling the more difficult time-bound levels.
Overall, the game is a smashing success in terms of what it claims to be. Everything is perfect, except the difficulty level. I’m sorry I can’t stop cribbing about that. My scalp still hurts from all the hair pulling.
So strap yourself into the amazing physics of Air Transporter and brace yourself for 18 levels of transporting fun! Good luck, pilot!Air Transporter,
