Good game, needs a few details
by CPtheO on 2019/05/05 18:37
This is a pretty good game, not great. It is actually missing a few details like flares. Having to switch between flying the aircraft and using the fire control system is a pain. Especially when you are receiving anti aircraft fire. I understand in reality that is why it is a 2 man aircraft but for gaming purposes it would make more sense to be able to do both simultaneously. Also the beginning tutorial should go through how to navigate from point to point better. There are some navigation features apparently that I didn’t know existed until the end of the game. It would also be helpful if they taught you how to take off and land instead of the trial and error process. All in all I enjoyed the game but it could be better. It really needs more missions.
Wish there were updates.

Controls are slow sluggish to respond
by American made 1 on 2019/03/25 20:30
controlling the collective of the helicopter with the tilt of the phone is harder than it should be !the controls are slow and sluggish not very real, graphics are marginal you can drive straight through the trees without crashing,crashing looks the fakest ( i do that alot ) missons are all repetition. dave k

The game has terrible controls. You cant control the chopper! You want to control straight, it goes to the side!!

Great fun
Cockpit view improvements
by Had0910 on 2016/08/01 04:46
Great sim. Can you make the following cockpit view improvements. These are featured in your air cav sim: 1. Being able to look around the cockpit. In Apache 3D you can't look right, left, up, down or behind you. You can do so in air cav. 2. Camera view for the pilot and gunner. In the air cav Apache you can fly from the pilot or gunner's perspective. Again awesome sim & look forward to the updates.
Very good game
by kohoutek on 2016/06/19 21:09
Great fun, well executed. New missions would be good, a touch more complexity in some would also be welcome. But overall, it's excellent.

Very, very good!

Geometrically a blast. Could use a FAQ for a few options, but overwhelmingly addictive due to the realism of the craft. I 👁Iikeit.
A little rough, but fun
by IDontWantAStupidNicknameDamnIt on 2016/04/21 05:00
One problem. Level 13... Kill two guards on boat. Destroy boat. Kill two guards on larger island. Kill one on small island. Return and land. As soon as you try to shut down the engine you 'crash'. The implication is that there's another target, but I can't find it!
Chopper

Crashes iPhone 6
by Sfastudent on 2016/01/07 20:30
I just downloaded the game. It works for 4 of the initial campaigns and then crashes my phone. I have the newest os installed. Total waste of money.
It was good until...
by themmer2622 on 2016/01/06 23:25
App crashes each time mission 5 commences. I've reset, reinstalled, and reset the phone. Crashes.
Stop working
by BBlueballs on 2015/12/31 16:42
It's a good sims however it's stops working after the 4th mission pls fix/upgrade I actually paid for this app !!
Worst game ever
by Cherrypiker69 on 2015/12/23 22:17
I can only play the first 4 missions. I try to select the 5th mission and it sends me out of the game. I uninstall the game and installed a second time and same results. Don't waist your money this app is garbage.
App failure
by Ladarian10798 on 2015/12/11 01:10
App fails to load on level five. Contacted the company about the issue 3 weeks ago. Receive a response back from the company with no clear solution or "ETA" on correcting the issue.
Crashes!
by 56 Roughneck on 2015/10/26 12:11
Why does the app crash every time I try mission 5?!!!
Locked out
by Poker mouse on 2015/10/21 03:01
Someone help! I breeze through the first 4 missions. When I click mission 5 I get kicked out to me home screen. And I can't find customer support anywhere. I'm not losing sleep over $3 but if you can tell me how to fix it I'll boost the rating!! Pretty neat game!
How did this happen
by Waterlox on 2015/10/09 00:29
The friggin collective is backwards! Push up and you'll descend. Push down and you'll ascend. I've never wanted something to work so badly only to have it simply drive me crazy. How could this have happened?
Error game

by gtmecheng on 2015/10/05 13:06
When I start mission 5 it shuts down. Tried restarting and everything. It's not the device but the program.
Crashes at level 5
by 99Chase on 2015/10/03 18:40
I love this game and for some reason when I get to level five the game crashes on my iPhone 6. I can't find anywhere for email support on their website either. 😓
Keeps crashing

Awesome game, needs more missions
Good Overall
by Ryguy123 on 2015/04/25 19:58
Definitely one of the better helicopter apps on the Store. My only gripes are that the collective is inverted and there's no option to swap it, ie. Collective up makes you descend. Makes life harder for those of us that fly helicopters... And flying backwards is scaled poorly. I can have the aircraft standing on the tail and it moves aft at a snail's pace. Oh! And I believe in the real Apache an "x" while looking through FLIR is a don't shoot indication, not an enemy marker, so that may be backwards here. Other than that, have enjoyed the app. Good work!
Not worth the coin.
by EOD-Tech on 2015/02/04 03:56
Fun game until you complete all 17 missions. After that it's air show mode or free flight. Gets pretty boring. Not worth the money when all is said and done. Graphics are, however, better than most simulation games.
AWESOME
by Repyoset on 2015/01/01 22:07
Great App for the price!! Only thing to do is add more missions to keep the enjoyment up. Please add more missions!!!!
Outstanding
by rellimnitsuj on 2014/12/01 17:44
Excellent graphics and realistic, yet not impossible flight characteristics. It's fun switching on the FLIR to pick out targets. Can't believe this runs on my iPhone. Comes with 17 missions; would happily pay for more in-app. Please release more campaigns!
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!

I love it but the collective needs to be on the left and have a 360 degree view like the black shark simulator you guys made.
Hard to control
by ThomasCormier on 2014/04/05 14:16
I don't get how to control it .Please fix!!!

by Killer7283 on 2014/03/14 14:44
This game is the best I played all the missions already and I love it . If somebody wants to buy it , buy it you will have a lot of fun.
Not as predicted
by Almahari ahmed on 2014/02/28 07:54
After finishing the game it seams that black shark have more action over this one.
Caution!

Mission 9
by AlaskaSam on 2013/11/26 09:35
How do I complete mission 9? I fly in low over the river, but get a message saying I've failed once I reach the dam. I also tried destroying the radar, but that didn't work, either. Please help!
Short but good sim
by Anonymous739105 on 2013/11/18 00:40
Not many levels but seems like a fun simulator. Mission 14 seems to have an issue though and I can't pass it.. I do everything it says but the mission won't complete and I'm left just sitting there. :( Please fix this for 5 stars because not being able to access the last 3 missions and the "Airshow" feature isn't very nice.
Awesome!
by Medic-Firefighter on 2013/11/17 03:04
This is a great app and it works great on my iphone5. Very addictive as well. When i get going i don't want to put it down. I just want to move to the next mission! The graphics are outstanding as are the visual effects and radio traffic you hear during the missions. Cant say enough about this app. Fun, exciting and yeah if you have so e time to kill or need to be occupied for a while.. This will do it!
Very very outstanding
by Tundra viper on 2013/11/16 04:08
This app has Air show mode this game can make me very happy and the men very realistic and cool but by air show mode I want 2 Apaches to do special tricks with people watching,
Great game
by Tetonmtus on 2013/11/11 20:55
Excellent game. Challenging and very entertaining! Only problem is the train on level ten sometimes leaves the track and tumbles end over end.

All it is on my screen is a black screen and music
Needs lots of work
by captandy on 2013/09/14 15:02
Issue 1; there's no turning, only shifting the screen left or right. Issue 2; landing is far too difficult. It's easier to land a real chopper than it is this sim. Issue 3; poor radar Issue 4; controls located in bad spots
Great game..
by CORYFOSTER14 on 2013/09/06 03:55
Trouble with mission nine though... It is difficult.
Don't know where the enemy is...
by Albert Choi on 2013/08/24 03:26
This game is awesome, except for the fact that sometimes it takes minutes to find one enemy object... It does show on the radar though where the enemy is, but its not enough. When I go to the target, the enemy is nowhere to be seen! It's frustrating!

Wanted to update my review following the 1.2 update (as I said I would). Terrific flight physics and noticably improved graphics. Still needs a few key pieces to make it an excellent, accurate, and user friendly flight sim IMO: -The ability to lock onto and cycle between multiple targets. -The addition of Hellfires with a target lock/guided capability. -Working horizon and compass in the MFD, FLIR and HUD. -Ability to zoom in and out a little and toggle white hot/black hot in FLIR. -Improved explosion/kill graphics. -More extensive missions with multiple waypoints and targets. Not just the "fly here, shoot that, go home" scenarios. Still a solid stars right now IMO. A real surprise to see something this intricate on the iPhone. Still has a little bit of a work in progress feel. Not necessarily a bad thing, as the developers have shown they are hard at work making things a little bit better every day. I will bump my rating as development progresses and the game receives updates/ necessary additions. A very-very fun and accurate flight sim. Buy it!
Good Game

Great game
by mrz1216 on 2012/03/21 14:41
This game is definitely worth the 99¢. Very fun and addicting. 4 stars because there's nothing to do in free roam, and you have to fly within your airspace. Needs more missions! The landing missions are fun, especially when your landing on a train or a ship. I enjoyed the real-life scenarios such as the pirate scenario, but it could have used some hostages that you have to avoid hitting. Also, some anti-aircraft might make things more interesting, the only real danger to your helicopter seems to be your own flying ability. Considering the iPhone 4S has the dual-core A5, some better graphics would be nice. But this is definitely the best helicopter flying simulator in the App store.
Is fun
by Hunter8511 on 2012/01/20 23:53
I really like the similator. It's fun and I think is worth the money I spent on it. However, there needs to be more challenging missions and more altogether. It took me 25 min to beat all 12. Make some more trick missions. As for the realism, I think the compass should be true and move with whatever direction you fly. Also the altitude bar should have tick marks that move as well. I would like to be able to move the map around to. I think the radar should also have settings for range. Other then that. It is super fun to play. I just with there was more to it.
Horrible game
by Disappointed in Wi. 920 on 2011/08/09 18:52
I really don't understand why this game is rated so high! The graphics are very good but the controls are terrible!! Apparently you have to be on Facebook to fat any kind of help, the in game tutorial is ridiculously basic. While playing the game I would get a warning buzzer that is never explained anywhere in the tutorial, but every time it happened the helicopter would go out of control for several seconds and loose altitude rapidly. The chain gun camera is also a joke. The tutorial says the helicopter is on autopilot while you are in this view, but the autopilot crashed the helicopter several times. Also there is no way I can find to zoom the sights out on the chain gun. Good luck trying to find your target! Very poor game, definitely not worth the money.
almost perfect
by tim davi on 2011/05/23 06:41
This sim is almost perfect. Very good physics and feelings of flight with AH-64, good combat missions, night missions and many details that you can't see in any other sim. Like preview reviewer said, m230 targeting system should be controlled independently, but it is WIP for 1.2 update as I checked in the app description. I can't wait for it. Anyway, this is so great helo simulator, so challenging and so good. I recommend to play it with headphones, it sounds amazing. Very good job, specially from one developer, keep work on updates please, this has so much potential.
Amazing !
by CoryAdam on 2012/08/21 21:17
Ive beat the game and love it, only thing I wish for is more free flight zones, with maybe towns or things not just an empty zone and longer lasting fuel, a real Apache Ah-64 has a fuel longevity of 2.5 hours flight time in the game you run empty in minutes. Also the bonus Air Show mode I thought would be like showing off, instead you control an aircraft from standstill point and its based on you actually watching it so its difficult and annoying. All in all I love this game its alot of fun to kill time.
Good Overall
by Ryguy123 on 2015/04/25 19:58
Definitely one of the better helicopter apps on the Store. My only gripes are that the collective is inverted and there's no option to swap it, ie. Collective up makes you descend. Makes life harder for those of us that fly helicopters... And flying backwards is scaled poorly. I can have the aircraft standing on the tail and it moves aft at a snail's pace. Oh! And I believe in the real Apache an "x" while looking through FLIR is a don't shoot indication, not an enemy marker, so that may be backwards here. Other than that, have enjoyed the app. Good work!
Good graphics, challenging controls (in a good way), multiple modes
by anoved on 2012/03/06 18:10
I appreciate that this game has a "free flight" mode. It's a great mode to get the hang of controls and to simply enjoy the act of flying the helicopter. The controls are complex, but not frustrating - just challenging enough to be rewarding to master. It's not a completely authentic simulation of helicopter controls, to be clear, but it's certainly not an "arcade" game - it takes some practice to execute the exact maneuvers you intend. That's what makes it fun!
Apache delivers!
by SmiteMatter on 2012/01/08 07:20
It's been a bit of a wait for this to get a much needed update to improve upon some of the many inconsistencies. Most notable was the poor targeting. That's not a problem any longer. Now locating targets it's much better. Many improvements were made, including spruced up graphics, better explosions, another free flight area and more. This is what I've been waiting for! The developers did a great job with Apache and it's more fun than ever. A real gem!
Good, needs work
by Munyard on 2011/04/29 14:50
The game is good but there needs to be some improvement. For example you don't gave nearly enough fuel limiting to fun because you are always having to refuel just as you get to the target. The bingo fuel warning dosent leave enough time to get back to refuel. Also needs a working radar. I can't get past level 5 because the terrorists I'm supposed to kill aren't there and there simply isn't enough fuel to spend much time searching for them. Address these issues and it'll 5 stars for sure. Just seems to have been released too early.
Nice just how I like it
by Stove Top 2828 on 2011/10/22 17:53
The throttle needs to have an option for switching the direction (up is throttle up and down to land), being a pilot my self when in cruising and you pull up you should be able to gain altitude. Also after pausing the game for a few mins and then resuming the engine dies, I guess the game forgets to stop the fuel and you run outta fuel resuming the game lol, $$$$$$ lastly a hover button or double taping the throttle should make you hover that would make the game so much more interesting
Awesome!
by Medic-Firefighter on 2013/11/17 03:04
This is a great app and it works great on my iphone5. Very addictive as well. When i get going i don't want to put it down. I just want to move to the next mission! The graphics are outstanding as are the visual effects and radio traffic you hear during the missions. Cant say enough about this app. Fun, exciting and yeah if you have so e time to kill or need to be occupied for a while.. This will do it!
my word
by Caaarlos on 2011/04/19 18:56
guys, this game is really difficult realistic simulation of helicopter, not arcade space ship. Sure landings are challange, don't expect succesfull landing with 100knots off course. About fuel in the previous review - show me any other sim with refueling (right, there is no other). Anyway, textures could be better for 4G. Please keep working on updates. This is really cool combat helo simulator with amazing physics. To the dev team: don't get discouraged by one star reviews and make landings easier for all.
Need More
by KP124kp on 2012/06/23 12:26
Once you learn how to fly this is a great game. Lots of fun. There needs to be more than 12 levels. It doesn't take long to go through all levels then your forced to repeat levels if you want to keep playing. We need more! Add more levels. I would give this game 5 stars if it has more levels. I rate it a 4 because I know the creators of this game can issue a update and give us more fun! Come on guys, get to work on those updates!
Apache 3D Sim
by dpargas01 on 2011/08/02 18:58
Great Sim! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I think theres just a little more thats possible with this flight sim. Realistic controls and challenging missions make it a really fun and realistic too. I'm looking forward to some more updates! The only thing I think this sim is missing are some aerial combat missions and maybe some more weapons and vehicles throughout the game.
hard & good!!!
by Johny KG on 2011/04/07 21:08
It needs a practice to learn fly and land, but it's ok....this is not arcade but sim. Hope to see some new missions in the future. This is the first real 3d combat chopper game here and I appreciate it's difficulty. If you control it gently, feeling of flight is amazing. Don't expect easy arcade flying and increase and decrease rotor rpm slowly...hold it between 40-70% and you'll be fine. That's my advice ;) This is a totaly must have for $2.99. :)
Ok I guess
by Ben420 420 on 2011/10/20 18:49
Controls are somewhat unresponsive or laggy, also if u end up increasing your altitude too much you end up out of bounds and in arcade mode the game won't allow me to interact with the altitude control to correct it so you hover there until it's game over. I haven't given simulation mode a fair shake yet but if it takes after arcade mode the I don't expect to much. Outside of that the graphics are good except weapon animations which leave allot to be desired. I agree with some of the other reviews about some of the missions being a bit...... off
Short but good sim
by Anonymous739105 on 2013/11/18 00:40
Not many levels but seems like a fun simulator. Mission 14 seems to have an issue though and I can't pass it.. I do everything it says but the mission won't complete and I'm left just sitting there. :( Please fix this for 5 stars because not being able to access the last 3 missions and the "Airshow" feature isn't very nice.
Awesome, But Could Be Better
by Dragon Slayer abc123 on 2013/05/16 15:48
It is an amazing game!!!! Totally beats the competition by a landslide. But can I ask just one thing? Could you please make the crashes more realistic? When you crash land, your helicopter stays in one piece, which isn't that realistic. Otherwise, it's a great buy! P.S. What if you added a multiplayer combat mode with battles and co-op missions? That would be fun!
Excellent Feeling of Flight?
by Howiefly on 2011/06/09 21:10
I really like the effect of "flight" in this simulator. The views, expecially the 1st person view, is right on and it gives just the "right" perspective. This developer is really putting in a sincere effort to make this app continuously better. I anxiously await the next upgrade to version 1.2 with the sliding throttle and many more additions & improvements.
CAS fun
by Adam Pearce on 2013/05/26 13:36
I can play each mission over and over, looking for new ways to reduce the enemy. How would I change it? More missions PLEASE. Harder AI, everyone should shoot at me, tanks and riflemen too! I'd like a button to zero my gun to crosshairs from the cockpit. I get 100x the value out of this game I recommend, and can't wait to see what you do with the Blackhawk one!
Really good and fun app! Getting better too!
by Wingman82 on 2011/07/14 17:56
Great updates! Very pleased with the progress of the app! One little suggestion. At least a working compass. The compass always points north. If you want perhaps target lock-ons and tracking. But as I pointed out before, I know it's a work in progress but it's a great app! I also like the new engine controls! Very nice! :-)
One of the few games I actually play
by scottglatz on 2013/01/20 17:40
Even though there's only 15 missions and 3 free flight terrains (desert, Alaska, Europe), I find myself playing this game more often than all my others. I enjoy just flying around and seeing what I can do. Would love to see more missions and other stuff to blow up in the free flight terrains.
