Description: Welcome to Copter and Sky, a brand new, hexacopter RC simulation! You will control a modern RC hexacopter in different game modes, levels and more! You will fight against the wind to fly, monitor the battery charge and avoid crashing into objects to prevent damage which could lead your copter to failure. Currently, the game has many features such as – going fishing, racing, golf, shooting cannonballs into the goal and carrying objects from A to B all while controlling your drone! The game is built within Unreal Engine 4, which brings excellent physics which makes drone control more difficult, and brings a nice touch to realism as you play. In its current state, the game is ready for release. Updates are not guaranteed, but if the game becomes popular enough we plan to add customisation options to your drone and possibly more levels, game modes and more.
Review: I have to admit, I had fun playing Copter and Sky. The drone controls feel good played with a gamepad and the scenery is really nice. But more importantly there are lots of little things to do with your drone from golf to speedruns. I’m not saying it made me a better drone flyer, but it did feel I had more control over it than I usually do with drones in real life. But then I did something I almost instantly regretted…
What I did was play this game in VR and while I’m usually good with even the most nauseating of games this is nauseating on a whole different level. The camera moves about so much it made things look like a blur unless I was moving super slowly. This is clearly a game not made for VR but has had a VR option bolted onto it and boy does it not work well. As I said, its a good game, but in VR this is one to avoid like the plague.
