[prMac.com] Cirencester, United Kingdom - Neon Play, the mobile games studio that won Apple's 10 billionth download have just released their next big Paper Glider adventure, Paper Glider Crazy Copter 1.0. The game has shot up the App Store charts, reaching a Top 10 spot in five major countries in only six days, and the number 1 Arcade game in many countries.
In Paper Glider Crazy Copter players must take off and navigate their copter through a twisting tunnel before landing safely at the opposite end of the cave. Some levels, however, contain enemies that threaten to crush, shoot or set the player ablaze as they fly down the tunnel.
Early levels provide instructions that help teach the player how to use the simple controls and fly their helicopter. As the player progresses through the game, new enemies appear and grow in quantity. Simples obstacles are replaced with shooting turrets or bouncing rings of fire.
Paper Glider Crazy Copter offers plenty of longevity as the game features three stages, each containing 21 challenging levels. New stages will follow soon with Desert and Moon stages in future updates.
The scoring system is based on the time it takes to complete a level, this time determines how many stars are awarded. Stars are important as they provide coins, Paper Glider Crazy Copter's in-game currency.
Coins can be used to purchase exciting weapons, customisations and upgrades. Early in the game the player is able to upgrade their "Training Copter" to a faster and more responsive "Pro Copter". Players can choose to enhance their copter further with the Super Copter or the ultimate flying machine, the Crazy Copter.
Casual gamers enjoy drifting through the levels and flying through hoops whilst the more hardcore gamer can race the rest of the world with the global leaderboards on Game Center. Paper Glider Crazy Copter reflects the cartoony art style that made the original Paper Glider game a success.
Paper Glider Crazy Copter is free to download. Boosts and customisations can be enabled with coins, the in-game currency. Coins are earned by playing the game or can be bought via an in-app purchase.
