Videopac Helicopter Rescue = Choplifter?

Recommended Posts

Helicopter Rescue Videopac #59 is fun, rare and expensive.

The prototype of this game was labeled MASH but Philips didn't buy the license.

Ha ha ha, seriously. I wonder why they chose the same name?

 

Pro: it's familiar

 

Con: it has a stink halo around it many miles in diameter

This game use the full capabilities of the Videopac+ mode, which is roughly equivalent to what you could do in BASIC on a CPC 464 computer. It's not compatible with standard O2/Videopac machines.

Why do you need that when you already have this?

Hahahaha! This game was so simple I was able to port it over to the TI-99/4 in BASIC, at the age of sixteen. My first port!

 

Of course I misspelled the title screen to read “Helecopter Rescue.” Found it in the TI-99/4 Gamebase 36 years later! How fun!
