Helly Copter is a simple endless runner where you play as a goofy looking helicopter. I meant helly copter, of course! Helly Copter features simple one touch controls, where tapping makes you ascend and letting go descends. It’s easy to learn but hard to master, so we’ve got a couple of tips and tricks for you in our Helly Copter cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
1. Watch your speeds!
After a few runs of the game you’ll notice that your helly copter doesn’t descend and ascend as fast as you’d like it to. Be careful when trying to go under obstacles – you may underestimate how slow the helly copter drops and end up running right into a block. Try to get used the physics of the helly copter. The copter definitely doesn’t move as fast as you’d think a game like this would, so it takes some time to getting used to.
2. Try short taps!
Helly Copter is best controlled by using short, rapid taps. Rapidly tapping will make your helly copter ascend in short bursts, giving you more time to react to incoming obstacles. Tapping and holding will make you ascend slightly faster, but it also make it’s much hard to descend. Don’t get caught in a bad place by tapping and holding – it’s better to use light taps so that you’re constantly shifting without using too much momentum either way.
3. Different copters!
If you care about the different skins for your helly copter, there a numerous ways to get more.
- You can open a free gift every couple of hours. These usually have coins inside, but sometimes you’ll receive a helly copter skin instead.
- You can watch an advertisement to receive a magic gift, which works just like the free gifts.
- After passing a certain distance, you’ll pass a x2 marker. This doesn’t affect your score, but after you crash and your run is over, you get coins equal to double your score. This marker is pretty early on so try to reach it if you’re going for coins.
Aside from all this, there’s not much to Helly Copter. There really isn’t any nuance to the physics or anything, you just have to get used to them. Keep playing and practice, know when to use short taps versus hold taps, and eventually you’ll be able to get super duper far!
