Update: Updated cart to latest version. This is probably close to what will be released.

A work-in-progress helicopter combat flight simulation. Loosely based on my memories of playing Gunship on C64 a few decades ago.

The heli can be controlled with player 1 input:

  • By default the arrow keys control the cyclic stick.
  • Hold down circle (z) to switch to collective (up/down) and tail rotor (left/right).
  • Hold down cross (x) for weapons mode, where up/down cycles between targets, and left/right selects the weapon.
  • Tap cross (x) quickly to fire.

So to take off, hold down circle (z) and up.

Alternatively you can use player 2 input (E,S,D,F in keyboard) for collective and tail rotor.

From left to right the weapons are:

  • None (i.e. safety on)
  • Cannon - auto aims. Effective against all unit types. Limited range.
  • Lazer guided missile - Seeks current target. Effective against tanks.
  • Unguided rockets - Fly straight ahead. Effective against infantry camps.
  • Countermeasures - Drop one of these to divert incoming missiles.
