With its sequel to Dustoff Heli Rescue, Invictus, the developer of games like Daytona Rush and Give it Up!, delivers yet again with the new Dustoff Heli Rescue 2. Fans of moon lander games will love this more sophisticated version of the same. In this game, you ride a helicopter over sandy plains and rescue soldiers stranded amidst enemies. There are a few different environments which are etched out in pixelated blocks, not unlike Minecraft. The controls are a bit laggy in this game, however, despite the blocky look, the graphics are a drain on your phone’s resources. The controls themselves are fairly simple but could have been more nuanced. Holding down with two fingers slows the helicopter down and preparation for landing and tapping either side of the screen makes it fly in that direction. But, there is no gradation in the speed or tilt of the helicopter it simply goes to the highest setting on each.
Your helicopter is also equipped with guns to shoot down your enemies, which might include soldiers and even other helicopters.
There are thirty unique levels to complete and nine different helicopters can be unlocked, including eleven weapons. To add to the variety of gameplay, there are a number of different missions in Dustoff Heli Rescue 2. These include cargo transport, air assault and bridge building, and more. While these details make it a highly enjoyable game to play, a few of the later levels lag a lot. The controls become less precise than ideal. The solution to this is to reduce the level of graphics in the game settings. The game also encourages microtransactions to an annoying degree, and more so than its predecessor. However, if you can ignore these slight flaws, Dustoff Heli Rescue 2 is going to become your new favorite time killer!
