Super Huey UH-IX
DOS - 1988
Description of Super Huey UH-IX
One of COSMI's best releases, Super Huey is a fun modern helicopter simulator that won a lot of praise from the Commodore 64 community when it was first released in 1985 for that computer.
It was not only one of the first helicopter sims ever made, but also was famous for introducing a number of features that many armchair pilots now take for granted, the best of which is the excellent flight instruction mode. The game actually tells you which keystrokes to press, and in what order. Gameplay, unfortunately, is very limited: there are only three missions to fly: explore, rescue (a POW), and combat-- all of which take place over nondescript landscape, with little variation. Flight mechanics and realistic aerodynamics are seriously lacking, and it is obvious that the game was targeted towards flight sim newbies than veterans. Still, intuitive controls and excellent tutorial makes this one of the better introductory-level sims, and a good "beer-and-pretzel" cockpit exercise that veterans can easily get in and out in a breeze. The PC version was much less well-known, although it adds bright, more detailed EGA graphics.
