Heli shmup - name?

Was thinking of something short like Roto-X, but pronunciation issues come into play. Rotox? Roto-Ex? Roto Ten? I'd get sick of explaining it.

Also thought of Black Thunder.... then remembered Blue Thunder. :/

Also, I'll probably be allowing the player to leave the helicopter and walk around, go into buildings, drive tanks etc. Been looking into it and the way I've coded it so far would make that fairly trivial to do. With that in mind I got to looking at Infiltrator (old 8-bit game) - think I mentioned it before, so something along those lines might be fun, but without the tedium.

Word Randomiser Doohickey wot I has maiked a while ago

Add words to the left, eg Helicopter, Weapon, Attack, Danger.
Hitting tab after each word will fill the right hand boxes with thesaurus-linked words.
Hit the "Mix it up" link.

The randomly generated list of words on the right (and smushed together things) aren't exactly brilliant, but do occasionally help trigger ideas for possible game titles.

How about Operation Hornet. Well a helicopter does sort of resemble a wasp.

The random names are a bit too abstract, and operation whatever is too much of a cliche.

Quite like Dragonstorm, but it turns out it's a baddie from Transformers.

Doesn't help that most of the words I can think of, are typically birds, thus traditionally planes, not helicopters.

Choppy McChopperface?


Thats the one for me!

If the game had a sort of comical feel to it then Choppy McChopperface would be perfect. Come to think of it, could just using Choppy without the McChopperface possibly work in this case?

Does the game have missions or is it just fly around aimlessly and blow the fuck out of anything that appears?. If it's just blow the fuck out of anything that appears then maybe "Blaster" "Blast 'em" or "Chopperblast", or "Complete and Utter Blastphemy" "CUB" for short.

No there'll be structured missions. Already been through lists of mythological beasts/gods - ended up at the Japanese god of thunder - Raiden. But that's taken. :s

Everything has been taken unless you make up a word...
