- Genre: Shooter
Choplifter is one of the few games that got ported from home systems to the arcade instead of the other way around. The goal of the game is to pilot an attack chopper to rescue 64 hostages from the clutches of the evil Bungeling Empire.

Besides being fun to play in real-time, it's also well-suited for TASing. It has fast-paced and lag-free gameplay, nice graphics, and simple mechanics. Both moving up and down and rotating the helicopter don't decrease your horizontal speed, which is great for both optimization and entertainment.

In this run, CoolKirby uses tool-assisted precision and tricks like blasting open enemy camps as soon as possible to beat the game in under three minutes.

We also have a movie of the Commodore 64 version.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
