Lots of levels, exciting game play, addictive game play, simple controls
From the images shown on the app store, you might be fooled into thinking that Dustoff Vietnam for Android is just another Minecraft clone. But if you get into the game yourself, you'll find that it's something completely different, and for the better. In this game, you take control of a helicopter based in a voxel world.
The aim of the game is to enter each level and rescue as many of your troops as possible by picking them up with your helicopter. The trouble is, unlike in most games, controlling this helicopter is a lot more like controlling one in real life. It is difficult and takes incredible care and precision. A little too far to the right, and you will go crashing into the wall, and too much speed when declining may end up with your helicopter on the grounds in smithereens.
The controls have been perfectly crafted to make it an exciting challenge every time, and even when you think you may have mastered the helicopter, more levels with extra challenges will keep things interesting for you. Eventually, you will be fighting it out against other troops and vehicles, whilst trying to pick up your troops.
Another thing that is really nice about this game is the voxel based graphics. It may not be the most beautiful game under the sun, but the game runs as smooth as butter, and these kind of graphics just look great on a mobile display. To top it off, the sound effects and background music in this game are super good.
Dustoff Vietnam does have some in-app purchases and advertisements, but they do not interrupt or affect the game greatly.
