Megacopter: Blades of the Goddess – Beta Demo

Megacopter: Blades of the Goddess is a Desert Strike inspired isometric chopper combat game where you pilot an attack chopper that’s inhabited by a bloodthirsty goddess.

The chopper-based isometric combat in Megacopter: Blades of the Goddess is very much inspired by classics like Choplifter and the Desert Strike series – you fly around warzones blasting enemies (lizard people) and using your winch to grab useful objects. It’s no Desert Strike clone though, it feels like a significant upgrade in every way.

The first thing you’ll notice is that the movement is faster and more responsive, and you have twin-stick aiming that allows you to target specific spots on the ground and aerial targets. Between missions you can purchase upgrades and choose your load-out, and there’s also the small matter of the giant bosses and a goddess that lives in your chopper who unlocks badass powers if you deliver her enough blood.

Everybody had good memories of the Desert Strike series, but if you return to them now they’re a little creaky and unwieldy. Megacopter: Blades of the Goddess does a fantastic job of rejuvenating the formula and adding some great little touches of its own.
