Chopper Command - Cartridge

DescriptionSubmit Description
This side scrolling shooter in the vein of Atariís Defender poses a challenge for even the best classic gamers. You control a chopper, your mission: defend the caravans of trucks from the enemy's bomber jets and helicopters. The caravans come in groups of three trucks, with three enemies patrolling the skies over each caravan. Once you shoot down a patrol, that caravan is safe...until the next level, when the enemy patrols come after your caravans again, this time faster and with more accuracy.

Several of Activisionís shooters boast a really cool laser effect for the player's shots. Chopper Command uses this effect, with shots that start out a dark blue, then intensify to white as they fly further from your chopper.

A score of 10,000 points or more at the cadet level earned you a prestigious Activision patch, a special Chopper Commandos emblem! (Contributed by Lord Helmet)
