Hellfire

HellfireHellfire takes you back to the cold war era, when the U.S.A. and U.S.S.R. were locked in an escalating race for military supremacy. The original Hellfire game for the Windows Mobile platform came out around 2004, and was dubbed Hellfire: Apache vs. Hind. The title is misleading—it makes it sound like an air-to-air combat game between two helicopters. It’s listed in the category of strategy games by the vendor, but most of the game involves direct combat between a helicopter you control and “bogies” controlled by the computer. (You choose to pilot either the Apache or Hind.) The original game was nicely executed and fun to play, and so is the newer version.

Hellfire Review

Hellfire by Astraware and Pazzazz games will take you back to the cold war era, when the U.S.A. and U.S.S.R. were locked into an escalation of military might. The top helicopter gunships of the day were the Mi-24 Hind (Soviet) and AH-64 Apache (American), and just about anyone from that era is familiar with the ferocious firepower of these helicopters. The Hind has a longer history and more varied operational capability than the AH-64, so it's not exactly a fair comparison.
