Well, have you played enough already in Pac-Man, and other children's toys? Do you want something serious? Then jump at the controls of a rescue helicopter and don't say later that you forgot to buckle up! The task in the game is quite difficult. Fast forward to the non-existent empire of Bungeling, which seems to have occupied some islands in the Middle East. 64 delegates were kidnapped straight from the World Peace Conference by the soldiers of this empire and imprisoned in barracks converted into prisons. On a rescue helicopter, you will fly into enemy territory and take out 16 hostages at each level. Rest assured, the tanks and planes won't leave you alone until you save everyone. By the way, planes are not as dangerous as ground opponents.
Choplifter first appeared on the Apple II platform thanks to the efforts of Dan Gorlin. Then it was ported to arcade machines, and then, scattered across almost all platforms from the early 80s to the present day!
The 5200 version is the twin sister of the Atari 8-bit version, but there are some changes. The picture is pale, the helicopter and the hostages are drawn better, but monotonous, the game is a bit unoptimized, which slows down in places.
