I bought Choplifter a few Years ago. At the Time, I was playing for hours. It's a Helicopter Simulator and it Plays in the Krieg.Perfekt.Außerdem There are still successes and Challengens.I liked it.

Another Retro Candidate in a new Guise that is suitable for more than just a Glance and is worth every Penny. Fly, baller, dodge and save Lives and always take good care that the Passengers do not make a "Departure."

The Expectations are not justified. I Wanted to play in a very unusual, that reminds me of the shogi Jungle Strike. However, this game is too monotonous and silly for that. For 3 hours I was bored. Created to sometimes sit down and pass an hour in the evening "without loading Mosk".

Is a fun Game for between through, but the Text dialogues in German are barely readable and if you like me can't do well or hardly speak English it makes it a bit less Fun. Otherwise the battle or, the Rescue Missioas play very close and the Mouse and Keyboard Steurung Is easy to use after short-winding.

Well-old school arcade Digest, Choplifter is enjoyed over time thanks to direct accessibility, a long margin of progression, and a consequent content for the fierce. Interesting to see how much this trip of the last century continues to have a formidable efficiency so much time after its time: simple concept, direct fun, gradual difficulty and margin of progression spreading over many hours are the qualities essential gameplay. Parts of a few minutes but more and more intense, in a spirit atmosphere of the 90 's, melant irony and bravery, if "arcade-style". In short, fun in the bar in an unusual style. Not a game that will make you dream or travel, but at all good anyway.

An arcade game of the years 80 that has been restored to the taste of the day. If you like helicopters, funs games, simple at first but having some difficulty during some challenges, you will not be I think disappointed. Several types of helicopters are to be unlocked and to evolve in performance, speed, fuel, more powerful armament, rescue capacity etc... This is a game I had on PS3 and I can tell you that it is still a little better on PC. There is a zombie mode that is rather nice, whereas, personally I do not like at all the tricks with the zombies in general but there I well gets off XD. I got it for €2.49 (-75%) Thanks to the sale of steam during the summer 2014, for this price you will be really pleased with this kind of "small" arcade game unpretentious but that will offer you a pleasure I think undeniable if you are a true amateur of the genre. http://store.steampowered.com/app/202070/Choplifter_HD/
