Thing it has in common with Chopper Command: popularity around the same time? They were both video games for the Atari 2600. Not sure who the pilot was -- there were lots over the 11-year run.

This week I'm going to go for the bonus first then get to the main game later today. :)

Bonus +3

The helicopter above is from the movie Predator and the pilot was played by actor Kevin Peter Hall, who also played the Predator in both the original movie and the sequel Predator 2. The helicopter in Chopper Command is similar to the helicopter in Predator in that they are both on a mission of mercy. In Chopper Command the helicopter is tasked with protecting a convoy and in Predator the helicopter is on a mission to rescue hostages from a group of guerrillas, but in both cases the goal is saving people. :)

Oh no.

 

 

I know the feeling, I almost decided not to play this week because of how much I hate this game. :lol: Which is funny because I usually love anything that involves flying around shooting things, but there's just something about this game that never fails to give me a full tilt case of gamer rage every time I play it. Anyway, enough of my complaining...

A very good score if you ask me! My all time high score for Chopper Command is 32,500. I'd like to beat it for this round if I can, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

2 - Chopper in film is a Huey 204. One in the game is vaguely Huey shaped. :-D  Both the movie and game came out in the 1980's.

Black Hawk Down (1993)

Like the movie, the choppers keep getting shot down.

The pilot is Michael Durant(right), played by Ron Eldard (left, actor). I don't think he has flown a chopper in any other movie.

Bonus:

 

The helicopter from Magnum P.I.

Flown by Roger E. Mosley (who is actually a licensed helicopter pilot) as T.C.

Similarities - color scheme? Kind of a stretch, but it's primarily brown, yellow and orange and Chopper Command uses a lot of brown, yellow and orange. If that doesn't work, both were products of the 80's.

After watching a video of oyamafamily playing Chopper Command to figure out what people who are good at this game do that I wasn't doing I managed to improve my score a whole lot and smashed my previous all time high score in the process. Nevertheless, this @!#?@!ing game can still go @!#?@! a whole @!#?@!ing @!#?@! of @!#?@!.

Does Rambo ever actually fly a helicopter or does he just ride in one? (i.e. not the pilot)

Yeah, he flies it.

 

 

And I said that it shoots down another helicopter "in a way" is that Rambo is sitting in the helicopter when he shoots the other one with a bazooka or something... iirc, it's not in this clip.

17,100 Var 3. What happens when you can actually get a higher score in a harder variant (in this case the "Commander" variant) than you can in the easier one?
