About the Game

The first version of Chopper for the iPhone reached the #1 paid game on the US charts, and has had well over one million downloads.

Chopper 2 is the sequel. It features a completely re-written 3D game engine, all new enemies, weapons, graphics, and missions, while still retaining the classic side scrolling game-play.

Chopper 2 offers 36 missions in 12 different beautiful and graphically unique locations. Fight against advancing tanks and infantry firing anything from machine guns to homing missiles. Watch out for bird-strike, and fly closer to the ground to gain a speed boost.

Chopper 2 Universal for iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad will be released mid 2010.
