Chopper Command is an all-time Activision classic, created by Bob Whitehead who also designed Boxing, Skiing, and Stampede while at Activision. In the back of the Chopper Command instruction manual, Bob Whitehead offered a few tips on "How To Become A 'Commando' at Chopper Command": As you'll soon discover, Chopper Command takes quick reflexes and keen coordination. However, there is a strategic side to the game as well. For example, your truck convoys will always travel from the right to the left. And so will the enemy formations. Knowing this, you can position yourself at the left side of the screen and start firing as soon as the enemy aircraft appear. This is important because your helicopter's chances of being hit by a multi-warhead missile increase the closer the enemy aircraft get. The enemy pilots are real kamikazes, too, and they'll collide with you if they can't shoot you down. I hope all of you have a good time, and remember this is for "nerd cred" and meant to be fun for all! I encourage you to share your strategies and experiences with all of us! You have until 11:59 pm PST March 31st, 2016 to complete this challenge and successfully submit your score. The ROM is readily available online, and the Instruction Book is provided for you below.
