That’s almost all there is to say about it, really. If you don’t know Choplifter, it’s very easy. 64 people are being held hostage by someone non-USA. You have to rescue them with your helicopter. You shoot tanks, planes and, err, alienthings trying to kill you, you pick up the hostages and you drop them at the embassy. No score is being awarded for shooting enemies, only for rescuing the hostages. (more…)

Ack-Ack Attack!

09/08/2009

Ack-Ack Attack! is a now freeware game by Kurt W. Dekker. This game takes the classic “Paratrooper” (or Sabotage) game and takes it to quite the extreme. For those that don’t know those games, gameplay is rather easy. You control an anti-air gun. Helicopters fly in, dropping paratroopers. If 4 paratroopers land on one side of you, they work together to blow up your gun emplacement and it’s game over. The objective is thus to shoot down both the helicopters and the paratroopers as fast as possible.
