Attack Helicopter Shoot ‘Em Up “GyroBlade” Now on Nintendo Switch

It may be a bit early for Attack Helicopter Week, but indie game publisher Tendokore is already getting into the festive spirit by officially releasing 2D shoot ‘em up GyroBlade for the Nintendo Switch.

Developed by H.T. Project Games, GyroBlade is a vertical scrolling shooter inspired by the classic games of the 8-bit era (Tiger Heli comes to mind), complete with challenging gameplay and a pixel art visual aesthetic.

Here’s the official breakdown of GyroBlade from Tendokore, followed by the latest trailer:

GyroBlade is a thrilling 2D shooter that brings the classic arcade action of 8-bit games to the modern era. The player controls a powerful helicopter, flying over various terrain and engaging in intense dogfights with other aircraft.

With its retro pixel art graphics, smooth controls, and intense gameplay, GyroBlade is a must-play for fans of the shmup genre and anyone looking for a challenging and satisfying old-school shooter experience.
