Choplifter is a 1982 Apple II game developed by Dan Gorlin and published by Brøderbund. It was ported to other home computers and, in 1985, Segareleased a coin-operated arcade gameremake, which in turn received several home ports of its own. While many arcade games have been ported tohome computers and consumer consoles, Choplifter was one of the few games (Lode Runner is another) to take the reverse route: first appearing on a home system and being ported to the arcade.

This is one tough game, it's not fair that you get attacked in the "safe zone." :mad:

Been super busy and sorry to have missed like every game but the first, but here's an 'unofficial' score I guess you'd say. I scored it back almost 2 years ago, Dec 2010.

517,600

Choplifter - 600

I guess 600 is better than no score at all...haven't had time to put much effort into games this week.

Score = 947,500 (I know I can hit 1 million)

 

I also found a "super-secret-technique" for the cave levels. You can see it on the HS run... Not sure if anyone else ever did this, but I figured it out on my own (have that vid also - it was a game changing moment! :)
