Fans of the good ol' Choplifter will love this side-scrolling helicopter shoot-em-up.

In classic action side-scrolling game fashion, Chopper puts you in control of a military helicopter which you need to fly through different levels and landscapes, destroying as many enemies along the way as you can and avoiding enemy fire. You'll have with you a complete arsenal of machine gun, missiles and bombs to take care of the soldiers, tanks, jets and other enemies getting in your path.

The graphics are nothing short of impressive, even though Chopper is a rather simple gaming concept. You'll travel through every sort of landscape, from snowy valleys to jungles or hostile urban territory. We liked how the weather changes, with helicopter having to go through missions under pouring rain or heavy snow fall sometimes. The game features 60 different levels, and it will constantly generate random elements, so you never really know how many enemies will pop out or from where they'll be coming.

On the whole Chopper is good fun and brings back fond memories of classic side scrolling shoot-em-ups. The game can get a little repetitive after a while but luckily the graphics are really nice and Chopper doesn't require any advanced controls.

Chopper is an action packed side-scrolling helicopter game. Complete your mission, and return to base, while avoiding enemy fire from tanks, bazooka wielding mad men, and jets.

Chopper 1.1 adds major graphical enhancements. All graphics have now been optimized for display on monitors with a resolution of 1920x1200. Depth of field has been added, and the quality of particle effects and animations has been increased.

Four new levels have also been added, bringing the total number of levels up to sixty across the three difficulty settings. These levels range from 'Suburbia' where the player must fly over miles of hostile territory to rescue families in the suburbs, to 'No Room To Move' where the player is flying in a cramped space above tall skyscrapers where enemy bazookas are firing from the roof tops.

Features:

  • Universal Binary
  • 60 total levels across 3 difficulty levels
  • Addictive, adrenalin pumping game-play
  • Realistic particle effects and explosions
  • Random elements each time you play
  • Machine Gun, Bombs, Rockets, Tanks, Jets

    "boring and expensive"

    this is fun although getting boring very fast. definitely doesn't worth spending more than $2. and surely not $10!. More.
