Chopper 2, a game by Majic Jungle Software, is the sequel to the very popular side scrolling game “Chopper”. Tons of improvements were made and the game now features stunning 3D graphics as well as new enemies, weapons and obstacles. Chopper 2 also offers a unique experience to people who own both an iPad and an iPhone as you are able to use the iPhone as a remote control for the game on the iPad.
The object of the game, like in Chopper 1, is to fly your helicopter over various landscapes, shooting down enemies and saving civilians as well as completing various other assigned missions. For weapons, your chopper is equipped with 8 bombs, 8 missiles and a machine gun with unlimited ammo. You are able to pick up ammunition and repair you ride in-mission at repair pads scattered over the landscape. Your enemies include soldiers, tanks, turrets, choppers that fire endless streams of bullets and missiles at you. But that isn’t all, a new obstacle was added to the game, birds. Large flocks of birds fly around during battle and cause massive damage to your copter if the the two collide.
This game has 36 different missions that take place over 12 different landscapes. There are 4 different main locations: Desert, Forest, Snow and City, and for each location there are 3 landscapes. Now at first this may not seem like very many levels but the truth is that this game is so insanely difficult that it takes a very long time to complete all those missions. Based on personal experience, some of the levels can take dozens and dozens of tries to successfully complete and sometimes that can add up to a couple hours, just for 1 level! Oh and did I mention that that is on the easiest game setting, “Normal mode”. I didn’t even bother trying on expert.
The remote control feature in this game is very unique and amazing although unfortunately only people with both and iPhone and an iPad can experience it. The way it works is you connect the two devices over bluetooth and then use the iPhone to control the action on the iPad. This is great not only because the game looks amazing on the iPad but also because playing the game directly on the iPad can be a little awkward. But this feature doesn’t stop there, if you own a special cable you can hook your iPad up to your TV and play Chopper 2 on the big screen.
Overall, Chopper 2 is a really fun game with good graphics, sound and gameplay. The only real downside is the level of difficulty. For the price of 2.99 this game is a must buy for people who own both and iPad and an iPhone or anyone else who think they would like this type of game.
