Product Description
gunship II
Bird is the Word

War is raging in Vietnam between the Communist forces of North Vietnam and the Republican forces of South Vietnam. You're an ace helicopter pilot thrown into the fray of Vietnam's toughest air battles. It's time to dust off and get your chopper in the air in Gunship II.

gunship II
Enemy sighted! Fire!

Fly the actual gunships that saw action in the Vietnam War. Play five realistic and deadly missions. You'll fly a different bird in each mission.

Get in the cockpit into legendary aircraft such as the H-34 Choctaw, H-13 Sioux, UH-1D Huey, UH-1B Huey Gunship, and AH-1 Cobra. You're part of the new air mobility tactic where helicopters were heavily used to insert troops into battles, transport supplies and weapons to remote outposts, hover and pick up downed pilots under fire, and fly dangerous low level Hunter-Killer missions.

Rough and Tumble Missions

In Rescue Dawn (inspired by the real-life adventures of pilot Dieter Dengler), you embark on a daring mission to retrieve a downed pilot. In Thunder Road, you're escorting a supply convoy that encounters a terrible ambush. In Search and Destroy, you're flying a Bell-47 scout helicopter to discover and mark enemy positions with smoke grenades.

Realistic Gameplay

Fly with an intuitive combination of touch-screen and accelerometer controls. Get briefings before each mission, and view actual photos of the chopper you'll fly. Take off from land bases and aircraft carriers, and fly over realistic terrain. And remember, flyboy--failure is not an option.

Please note that this game requires a Wi-Fi connection to download.

You get to choose from 5 different Vietnam War choppers to fly on missions. The graphics are wonderfully done and enhance your game playing experience. You start off in a level called Transport in early 1960's. You are to supply weapons and supplies to the military bases by flying a Choctaw H-34. The other game levels can be accessed by touching the left and right ARROW KEYS but the other levels are locked.

I could fly the helicopter but I had no idea of where to fly to at first. I quickly found a base with helipads and landed but nothing happened. When I went flying onwards, looking for the mission, text popped up and said, "Where you going? Return to mission immediately!" There are no maps to show you where your mission objective is and once I got to the base I had no indication that I was in the right place.

The controls seemed slow to respond and I found that by pausing you could adjust the control sensitivity. By placing your finger onto the screen and swiping left or right and up and down you could angle the chopper and look around. You should keep looking and watch out for other aircraft traffic. Red arrows indicate the direction you should be flying in and the number shown with the arrow seems to indicate the distance to the target in meters. Land on the helipad, reduce your engine speed and wait for the cargo to unload (I could never get the cargo unloaded). A countdown timer is supposed to start on the screen above the Chopper. It is supposed to indicate when to leave after the cargo is unloaded. Fly to the next waypoint by following the red arrows. You are returning to the ship and land on the deck, slow and easy! Move up to the marked landing spot and slow down the engines, congratulations your first mission is complete.

3.0 out of 5 stars I love the smell of napalm in the morning July 22, 2012

Gunship II is a Vietnam War era combat flight simulator. The game currently offers 5 missions, with the developer claiming several more are coming soon. The first mission is to transport a load of cargo from a carrier to a land base using an H-34 Choctaw. Then you have to take photos of a couple suspicious villages using an H-13 Sioux. The third mission is to rescue a pilot trapped behind enemy lines using a UH-1D Huey. This is followed by an air patrol in a UH-1B Huey Gunship. The final mission involves another observation helo drawing enemy fire so your AH-1 Cobra can target them. Future missions will supposedly involve the F-4 Phantom II, T-28 Trojan, A-37 Dragonfly, CH-47 Chinook, OH-6 Cayuse and two enemy aircraft, the MiG-15 and MiG-21.

The controls are fairly simple, you slide the control on the left up and down to adjust the throttle (and thus increase or decrease altitude), while the control on the bottom right works the rudder. You move forward, backwards and sideways by tilting your device. The camera button lets you switch between interior and exterior cameras, and you can look around by swiping on the screen. If your aircraft has guns or a camera, the appropriate fire buttons will appear in the lower right corner. The red bar along the top is your aircraft health.

Some people have complained about a lack of instructions, but they are provided for you IF you follow the designated flight path. Just fly through the red arrows and all will be explained.

The graphics are pretty good, and the developer did a great job on the rotor motion effects.

My primary complaint about the game is that there are no instruments, particularly an altimeter. It is sometimes difficult to figure out how high you are above the ground.
