About The Game

Battle Chopper is a horizontally scrolling shoot-em-up arcade video game. Your mission is to rescue the planet. Clear 6 zones in all, including floating green islands, moving rock beds, underground clock towers, etc. The incidents which occur one after another are all caused by the psychic power of the muddy. The enemies you encounter on your way are pretty tough. Keep sharp watch for them though they look cute. This is an exciting airfight game with the charm of a cartoon.


Released in December 1987.

This game is known in Japan as "Mr. Heli no Daibouken".

Mr. Heli appears as an unlockable ship in the Sony PlayStation 2 game "R-Type Final".

Alfa Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (R-Type : Irem Game Music - 28XA-199) on 25/01/1988.
