Top-down endless attack helicopter action shooter.

Helostruck

You are an attack helicopter pilot posted in an outpost in the middle of a desert. Enemies are all around in the endless sea of sand. Can you complete the missions HQ sends you?

Backstory

After the military situation in the Middle East has deteriorated and PMCs (Private Military Companies) have started an all out war with each other, you are left as a vanguard of the EUDF (European Union Defense Force) to protect the withdrawal of friendly forces and civilians.

Posted in a base in the middle of the desert, you take out your helicopter on daily patrols to keep everyone safe. It's dust or bust.

Really enjoyable game! I really liked the idea of it and I ended up having so much fun :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
