Originally released for the Apple II in 1982, 'Choplifter!' is an early scrolling shooter game created by Dan Gorlin. It gained popularity due its novel gameplay, which tasked players with flying a rescue helicopter to save hostages (POWs) from conflict zones. The game stood out for its rescue-focused missions, unlike most shoot-'em-up games of the era that were solely about destruction. 'Choplifter!' was later adapted and released on the Colecovision home video game console, among others, allowing players to enjoy the intense rescue action on their television screens. The player must skillfully navigate and dodge enemy fire while keeping an eye on the fuel and damage levels of the helicopter.
