6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Chopper 1.1 was recently released by developer Majic Jungle Software. The game is an action packed side-scrolling helicopter game in which players complete missions, and return to base, while avoiding enemy fire from tanks, bazooka wielding mad men, and jets. Chopper 1.1 adds new levels and boasts a complete overhaul of graphics and sound, amongst many other improvements.

The graphics have received the largest improvement in this update. All graphics have now been optimized for display on monitors with a resolution of 1920x1200. Depth of field has been added, and the quality of particle effects and animations has been increased.

Four new levels have been added, bringing the total number of levels up to sixty across the three difficulty settings. These levels range from 'Suburbia' where the player must fly over miles of hostile territory to rescue families in the suburbs, to 'No Room To Move' where the player is flying in a cramped space above tall skyscrapers where enemy bazookas are firing from the roof tops.

List Of Changes in Chopper 1.1:
* Major graphical improvements, most textures have been replaced with
new higher resolution images, with many other graphical enhancements.
* New sounds added and many others replaced with better quality
* Four new levels added to each difficulty level bringing the total
number of levels up to sixty.
* Optimizations made to reduce toll on system resources.
* Stability improvements and Leopard compatibility improved.
With version 1.1 Chopper becomes shareware, selling for a price of $15. There is a 30 day, no limitation trial period after which the game must be registered.

Chopper is a Universal Binary, and has been tested on a range of machines from a PPC eMac running 10.4.9 to an Intel 24 inch iMac running 10.5.1. The minimum requirements to play are a 16MB graphics card and OS X 10.3.9.
