OverviewIncluding “HD” to the title makes sense relatively – yes, it appears better than the original that came out thirty years ago, but its visuals are rudimentary by modern standards. There’s something attractive about tiny vehicles and people that defies our brains’ demands for hi-tech visual gimmickry, but there could have been much more effort put into the game’s look nonetheless. Environments are quite drab and repetitive, and lacking in that extra bit of detail that makes games of this sort occasionally so wonderful to look at .
In Choplifter HD™ for Android smartphones and tablets, players overcome the role of an up and coming rescue pilot asked to join the elite, international helicopter rescue team. Pilots are skilled to command a number of helicopters deployed on more than 30 various missions.
