The world needs your help! The militaristic Bungeling Empire has kidnapped 64 United Nations delegates and is holding them hostage unless their demands are met.
As a U.S. helicopter pilot, it is your job to fly into hostile territory and rescue the hostages, in Coleco's Choplifter, the side-scrolling helicopter rescue game.
The hostages are being held in four barracks which you must blast open with your helicopter's cannon. Land carefully and wait as the hostages run into the helicopter, which can hold 16 hostages at a time.
Of course the Bungelings aren't going to let you get away with this so easy. They have sent out tanks to fire on both you and the escaping hostages. They have also launched their fighter jets which are equipped with air-to-air missiles as well as conventional surface bombs.
Grab as many hostages as you can and fly back to the U.S. military base. See how many hostages you can successfully rescue.
The game ends when all three of your Sorties have been destroyed, or when all hostages are accounted for, either rescued or killed. ~ Michael Schwartz/Joan Dykman, All Game Guide
