IneXile’s Choplifter HD was supposed to have turned up in the Autumn of last year, but rather dropped off the radar. Now though they send word that the game will appear on 10th of January for digital download. They explain: “In Choplifter HD, players take control of a variety of helicopters armed with a number of offensive capabilities so they can swoop in and make daring rescues in hot zones. The game features more than 30 missions ranging from straight prisoner extraction to dropping off saboteurs that blow buildings sky high to saving survivors from viral outbreaks. Pilots must bank, hover, touchdown, and sometimes even shake loose pesky zombies hanging from their choppers.” You can also attempt to rescue characters like Duke Nukem and Steve from Minecraft, as you can see in the two bizarre “cameo” videos which I’ve posted below.
