My Love/Hate relationship with Helicopter
This game enrages me. It’s randomly generated so the game plays almost entirely on luck, and the physics are really poor so it’s really hard to go up and down when you need to. The hit box on the helicopter is way too big; many times I’ve “hit” a wall when I totally actually did avoid it, and the whole game is just overly simplistic and should be really boring.
But I play it anyway. I have no idea what is up with this game, but it’s so addicting. On some occasions, I’ve actually played it 20, 30 times in a row, and I’m not even good at it. There’s no other “casual” game that I’ve ever played that has matched my obsession with Helicopter, barring the Xbox Live Indie Game Baby Maker Xtreme. How can such a dumb and simple game interest me so much?
I have no idea, but one thing is for certain; the Super Mario Bros. version of Helicopter sucks really bad, and I DON’T like to play it, either. 😛
