Description

Rescue Helicopter Simulator 2014 is a single-player, keyboard controlled game. Though the game calls itself a simulator it is really more arcade in style. Helicopters are complex beasts yet this game reduces the control system to seven action keys which are:
  • E- Starts the engine
  • W - Increases power / ascend
  • S - Decrease power / descend
  • And the four arrow keys to steer
    though these can be dispensed with if the player uses the mouse to steer.
There are four helicopters available but the player must use them in sequence, i.e. Helicopter two cannot be used until all the missions using helicopter one have been completed.

After accepting a mission from control the player flies to the nearest hospital to pick up doctors, they then fly to the victims location, load up and return to the hospital. Some incidents mat require multiple trips as the helicopter can only hold six patients at a time, in these cases it can be important to transfer the more critical patients, those with the lowest time limit, first. Getting to a location is easy too as there's a big green direction arrow just above the centre of the screen which tells the player/pilot where to go.

Loading doctors and patients does not require landing or any complex action on behalf of the player. The hospital has a big green cone above it, all the player has to do to load doctors is to fly into the cone where they are presented with a menu of doctors to load. Loading victims is performed the same way the difference being that the cone over the victims location is both yellow and much smaller. Unloading patients is automatic, the player just has to fly through the cone over the hospital and they're gone - exchanged for cask and experience points.
