Choplifter HD vs Old School Choplifter

Back in the good old 1980′s you may recall both an arcade machine as well as a Commodore 64 and Atari version of a frustratingly fun game called Choplifter where you sour a 2 dimensional plane with your Huey (or Sortie depending on the flavor you were playing) and attempt rescue survivors on the ground without being shot down. If you remember any of the above, you might enjoy the latest Choplifter HD. (Arcade, Casual games, Choplifter HD, Mobile, PC, PS3, Retro, Wii, Xbox 360)

I like that they included the option of killing chickens.

I remember the original choplifter. It was pretty fun, the new one looks pretty good too! I might just grab that for old times sake.

This may be one of those titles I pick up on a PSN or XBLA sale. Tried the game, and it definitely felt like choplifter just all jazzed up with a new coat of paint. Not sure its a $15 game...but $10 and under and I might take a flyer on it.

Agree. While the game brings back old memories and the demo stayed true to the past, it should be under $10.

i would get a kick if this game kept the sega easter egg of having "superman" in the game. *wishful thinking*

Loved this on my Apple ][ with analog joystick....

Might just have to revisit ..... Not for $15 more likely more on the Oz store...

Edit: Unpack the Apple ][ methinks...

PS: Bring back Load Runner !!

I will hardly pay 15 bucks, unless the game lasts 10 hours or more, like a Lara croft guardian of light, dead nation,etc.

If this choplifter is finished in 2-3 hours(I don't know how many hours it lasts), well, i'll be waiting for a big and nice 50% reduction, on psn+

Anyway, I love these types of arcade action games, I'm 100% sure I will pick it, later,but for now, its a bit expensive... Last week,I bought mass effect 2 new,at a local store, for less than 20 bucks. So, 15$ for choplifter... It will have to wait :)
