The helicopter above is from the movie Predator and the pilot was played by actor Kevin Peter Hall, who also played the Predator in both the original movie and the sequel Predator 2. The helicopter in Chopper Command is similar to the helicopter in Predator in that they are both on a mission of mercy. In Chopper Command the helicopter is tasked with protecting a convoy and in Predator the helicopter is on a mission to rescue hostages from a group of guerrillas, but in both cases the goal is saving people. :)

Oh no.

 

 

I know the feeling, I almost decided not to play this week because of how much I hate this game. :lol: Which is funny because I usually love anything that involves flying around shooting things, but there's just something about this game that never fails to give me a full tilt case of gamer rage every time I play it. Anyway, enough of my complaining...

 

 

Chopper Command (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 27,600

This game is frustrating to me too. I think my high score is 29,000.

2 - Chopper in film is a Huey 204. One in the game is vaguely Huey shaped. :-D Both the movie and game came out in the 1980's.

Bonus:

 

The helicopter from Magnum P.I.

Flown by Roger E. Mosley (who is actually a licensed helicopter pilot) as T.C.

Similarities - color scheme? Kind of a stretch, but it's primarily brown, yellow and orange and Chopper Command uses a lot of brown, yellow and orange. If that doesn't work, both were products of the 80's.

After watching a video of oyamafamily playing Chopper Command to figure out what people who are good at this game do that I wasn't doing I managed to improve my score a whole lot and smashed my previous all time high score in the process. Nevertheless, this @!#?@!ing game can still go @!#?@! a whole @!#?@!ing @!#?@! of @!#?@!.

 

 

Chopper Command (Game 1, Difficulty B/B): 47,700
