Mr. Heli is a cracking multi-directional shoot-em-up
by Firebird. It's one I used to play a lot on the Amiga.
The C64 version is just as good in my opinion. The
sprites and backgrounds are very well drawn and the game
plays quite smoothly. There are lots of weapon power-ups
to collect for your helicopter, and there are three
levels to complete - each with end of level guardians to
beat. To access each level you need a password that you
get at the end of the previous one.
The final boss has
been defeated :)
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Using an infinite lives, money and weapons cheat.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
On blasting the final alien to pieces at the end of
level three, you get a screen of text telling you that
you have done a great job and that you will be
remembered forever. The game then resets back to the
start of level three.
