HellydropAlthough it's devoid of any sound at all—and if you are playing in an office that may be a good thing—this next game is a great way to pass a few minutes over an afternoon coffee break.

Hellydrop is an action arcade game in which you have but one chance to fly the helicopter as far as you can. Avoid terrain, lightning bolts, and those ominous evil winged creatures lurking in the sky. This one-button game uses the mouse button only: Click to take-off, and then keep clicking to fly.

The duration of your mouse button press determines your vertical velocity. Each time you click your vertical velocity is increased, while gravity provides the opposing force that pulls the copter back down.

This game is a clone of the famous seethru.co.uk helicopter game that has been circling the Web for months and months, though Hellydrop does not display the same tiling problem. On the downside, the level in Hellydrop is not randomly generated, and therefore memorizing the level can ultimately affect your relative success. This type of game is similar also to the Hamure-su racing game in that a simple series of mouse clicks is all that is required to play.

Simple fun and a very good effort. The game could be made much better by the mere addition of a helicopter engine sound when the mouse button is down, and the generation of a random level as noted above. The game is hosted on the Gorillaz.com website. Click.

made it to 1967

but watch out once you made it pass 1500... it will speed up a tad.

Oooo! I've played this game. I was going to review the Gorillaz.com website as a game itself, because it has more hidden point-and-click extras than you can imagine. Also, it seems that more is added to the gorillaz website every time they make another music video.

So yeah.

Awesomesauce.

2384 - I died right after making it through the tunnel for the second time.

Didn't much care for the game itself. The real fun itself is once you click exit and go to the gorillaz website... I played this game for 2 minutes, and hooked onto the website for 2 hours. Great choice Jay!

2078 is my best legitimate, no-slowing score.
