Choplifter is a very old game. Released on the Apple II and the Sega Master System a few years later, this game marked its time as a fun and intense helicopter game. Choplifter HD is this game’s remastered version. It’s exactly the same game but with improved visuals. The concept is pretty straightforward. You control a chopper in side-scrolling stages. You must evade the enemies’ projectiles and must destroy everything in sight. Don’t expect a deep storyline or a huge variety in missions. It’s an arcade type game to the core. The game is pretty long (30 levels). It’s a great title if you like this type of old school video games
