A decent translation of the original. I'm especially fond of the multi-plane background (Black Belt has the same thing going on).

Comments: One of the best looking SMS games when compared to its arcade progenitor, that is for sure. Once you learn to fly the caves backwards it is manageable, but the ending doesn't amount to a suitable award for your efforts.

Comments: This game always gave my uncle 'Nam flashbacks. That's why we could never play it when my Vietnamese friend Vo was over, we figured my uncle would freak out and kill the poor kid with his bare hands. My uncle finally shot up a 7-Eleven and the state then gave him the help he needed. Good game, anyway.

Comments: It always bothered me that the helicopter you actually pilot during the game is some Huey variant while Sega, for some reason, decided to put what appears to be a Sea Cobra as the box art. Do they think we won't notice? Poor quality control? Fuck.

Comments: As you would get so lazy, in this game, to clear a stage, you must retrieve 40 hostages. If 25 hostages or more are dead or you have no more helicopters, the game ends so you must restart at Stage 1. You have at the start 3 helicopters.

Comments: Further to my last entry, i remember once i got so stressed out on level 3 that the conroller went out of the window swiftly followed by the SMS console itself. It was recovered and worked fine into the next decade (probably due to the luck of there being a ledge directly outside my old bedroom window). The point...if anyone wishes to exchange memories or info about the golden age of video games please get in touch, my peers at the time never saw me thanks to SMS so they're long out of touch and my friend/colleagues these days are either of the PSone generation or before the console revolution so get emailing to nickc_74@yahoo.co.uk . it would be great to hear from you.

Comments: You bunch of pussies, in visiting this site i just decided to revisit my ALL TIME favourite game on the SMS and have just got to level six with 5 lives left. Albeit those lives did not last long on the cave mission the second time round. A bitch of a game but THE classic SMS game, i got this bundled with the SMS i got in 1986 and i lost months worth of my early teen years to it. All my peers were learning about the ins and outs of women sex and all that and there i was in my room playing choplifter, quartet, alex kidd etc till 2am every nite. Glad I,ve cought up a bit now being in my thirties with a wife and kids. Funny thing is i never got to level six before until tonite.......strange!

Comments: Ah, those sweet words of victory: this Sega version of Choplifter was created by the following... What the fuck is that for an ending? It doesn't even say "The End"! What did I rescue those hostages for? I come home from a dangerous mission and that is the thanks I get? Where's my parade? Don't spit on me you worthless hippies!! Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!

Comments: This is overall a good game with great graphics for it's day, but far too difficult to rate that highly. I learned too late that the secret to the caves was flying through them backwards. By the time I found out my desire to play Choplifter had long since faded away.

Comments: You know how Superman will appear out of those clamshell things? I forget exactly what had to be done to do it, but anyway, if Superman's there, why the fuck doesn't he help the hostages? The game is pretty good, but it loses marks for that shit.

Comments: Shooting the hostages was fun, but in some ways it was more satisfying to crush them under my landing skids. They were so close to freedom. I could almost see their faces grimacing in a horrible admixture of surprise and terror.

Comments: i liked that the shark from Jaws would poke his head out of the water if you shot the side of one of the battle ships. apart from that, this game was a pain in the ass and it didn't end so it was a pain in the ass with no resolution. how many f--- hostages were there?!? deep down, a good, primitive game that could have used more variety.

Comments: I finally beat this thing today, man! I was like 'WOW CREDITS!'. Seriously, though, soooo hard to beat. Spend HOURS trying to get past level 3. But if you can do that the rest is a cinch up to level 6, which is like 3 with the caves and stuff, just MORE stuff to kill you. I think I wet myself.

Comments: I just found this game at a junk store the other day, in the box with instructions and everything! Too bad it was programmed by Satan. This is one of those games where the designers were like "Hmmm, don't want people to just finish this in a day and be done with it, maybe we should add lots of levels and interesting challenges.....nah, let's just make it impossible." Nice multiple scrolling backgrounds though, never saw anything like that on Nintenduh. I give this game a 10 for graphics and a 1 for playability, which I guess averages out to 5.

Comments: A true classic. I wish I owned this one. At least I can be greatful I had the chance to play (and beat) this game. That last level in the cave was insanely hard. Does anyone remember a superman figure flying out of one of something in the ground if you did something special?? Thinking back 15 years makes my head hurt but I remember that happening. Never did finish it, someday perhaps.

Comments: Choplifter was one of the first Master System game to hit the system. The object of the game is to fly in enemy grounds and rescue hostages. Sounds easy, right? But there's tons of danger that awaits you. Tanks, jets, missile are gunning for you! Save hostages and bring them back to your base before you get shot down. Gameplay is intense! Graphic and sound are good. Overall, Choplifter is a quality title for the Master System.

Comments: Good game, one of the better action games out there for SMS. can't get past level 2 with the ships, and the cheap moments where you get shot down with like 18 hostages in your hold. it makes it impossible to pass. Who the Hell are wefighting anyway, are they Communists? or are they Iranians (iran contra deal was in the 80s and this game was from the 80s) pity about Choplifter on the Atari (yesss it does exist)
