Nice. Reminds me of... um... an Amiga game I can't remember the name of.

|edit| Jetstrike, and also Apocalypse which I'd forgotten about.

Can't remember Jetstrike, but do recall playing the demo of apocalypse. And it seems I've kind of copied the movement of the Choppa a bit!

Anyway any thoughts of the marketing stuff for your game and it's name?

I have fond memories of Jetstrike, especially as it was written in AMOS, which I used at the time.

No progress with the title yet. Going to start a dev blog somewhere when I get around to it, but I'd really like to get the title sorted before that. I'm going through lists of WW1/2 vehicles, looking for some inspiration. Vehicles were often given individual names - many are rubbish, some are OK. For example; https://sites.google.com/site/landships/home/lists/lists-of-world-war-one-tanks-by-name

Ah AMOS, it really got me into coding for the Amiga, I had AMOS Pro!

Do you have any back story for the game, maybe that could help with the name? Is it USA vs <Insert generic bad guy>, or a lone wolf sort of operation? Maybe a non government agency dealing with the bad guys... or are you the bad guy?

Back story? You talk like I have a design document or something for this, or have done any planning whatsoever!

I'm pretty awkward about it being anything specific. I got a ton of shit on Twitter just for voting for UKIP and Brexit. If I made a game about the US bombing the shit out of Kim Jong-un (for example), the anti-Trump brigade would want me strung up from the nearest lamp post. I'd have to get a flat-share with Salman Rushdie. That wouldn't do at all.

I quite liked the premise of US Gold's "Infiltrator", as it was just a straightforward "good guy (Infiltrator) vs madman (Overlord)" affair. You didn't really care who/why/where it was all happening. It just was.

I had Infiltrator on the CPC. I don't recall ever landing the damned helicopter; I kept crashing it IIRC!

Mine auto-lands (with a button press) when you're over something you can land on, so no worries there.

NAME IDEA!

"Rotorhead" - Air Force slang for a helicopter pilot.

The rotorhead is also the spinny bit that the rotor blades attach to.

Oooh, I like that.

Yeah Rotorhead could work! May need a sub title too:

* Rotorhead: Strike
* Rotorhead: Attack
* Rotorhead: Operation
* Attack of the Rotorhead
* Rotorhead: Mission One (hint of a sequel )
* Rotorhead: <Name of chopper>

I would pass on the Ground Zero aspect...

RotorHead: Global Conflict

Maybe?

Rotorhead : Undercover Copter

You could have missions like "infiltrate the Nazi Camp by placing a fake moustache on your Copter, and pretending to be the ghost of Hitler" and "Race to the finish without flying too high, as you pretend to be the latest F1 racer"..

Why dont you just call the first one "Rotorhead", and then put a sub title in any sequels... That sorta makes sense to me.

I see the sub title as a way to:

1. Increase interest
2. Increase searchable words
3. Describes the game more
