GAME TRIVIA

Originally released for Apple II home computers, Choplifter! began as a 3D game in early development, but was later converted into a 2D side-scroller when creator Dan Gorlin realized the limitations of contemporary hardware.

Game creator Dan Gorlin cites both the Iranian hostage crisis and the arcade game Defender as major influences on Choplifter!'s design.

In 1985, Sega released a coin-operated arcade game remake, which in turn was ported to the Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Master System in 1986.

Choplifter! is one of the few games that first appeared on a home system and was ported to the arcade.

GAME DESCRIPTION

PILOT ALERT!

The following orders have been classified confidential--Top Secret. A crisis situation has developed in the cold war between the United States and the Bungeling Empire. The 64 delegates to the United Nations Peace Conference have been kidnapped by the militaristic Bungelings near their territorial border. Escalation must be avoided! The U.S. has launched a mission to rescue these hostages, and the call has gone out for a heroic but level-headed pilot to command the rescue helicopter--you!

Your mission begins at the U.S Command Post just east of the Bungeling border. After your chopper lifts off and heads into the hostile territory, you'll see barracks where the prisoners are being held. Your goal--release and rescue! It won't be easy!
The Bungelings are not going to give up the hostages without a fight and will use all the weapons at their disposal to thwart the rescue mission. Success depends on your valiant effort.
There can be no rest as long as lives are in peril and a threat to world peace exists!
