NES AtoZ 48: Firehawk

Firehawk - 1/1

What a sweet game! The controls take a second to get used to but once you got it it feels just like flying a real helicopter … probably. In this game you need to go various cities in your badass helicopter equipped with bombs and machine guns. Your job is to rescue a green dude, maybe in later levels you need to get multiple dudes. When you find the dude the game changes modes from a top-down shooter to a sort of early-era quicktime event. You need to press A or B at correct times to shoot down enemies before they take you down. I need to give it props for pioneering quicktime events right? Little details like the typewriter keys moving when the letter is typed really sell this game. Resounding 1/1 check this one out.
