There's no parachuting hostages if you get hit (like the arcade version), but you can eject someone! It's not mentioned in the manual, but if you keep pressing FIRE (Button 1), any hostages you're carrying (up to 2) are ejected in what looks like jetpacks as you're crashing (and they'll fly to the base and be saved!).  This was mentioned on another site (http://www.ign.com/w......fter!_Cheats) but the description of how to do it is wrong.

Is this strictly for the SMS version of the game I'm assuming?

I finally got a copy of SMS Choplifter, and I have to say, it's the BEST version of that game that I've tried.  But, it's also really really hard.  I love the level set at sea.
