This game is allright. For me, “Chopper” is a bit too similar to the "Helicopter" game going around on the internet, but the graphics were good for what it was - a simple tunnel game on a calculator.

Something that could make the game better is to make the tunnel a little wider and have vertical obstacles. Then it would be a little more of a precision game. But as the other reviewers said, it does get a bit tedious and repetitive. I've gotten to the point where I just don't die.

In the whole scheme of things, it is a good game, worth a 7 out of 10.

I would like to congratulate the creator of “Chopper” for making an okay game. I think that he could have done a better job considering how old the playing gets so quickly. I played it for about an hour and a half before I just decided to delete it from sheer bordem. But if you have a boring bus ride to school and your “Gameboy” just happens to have no battery power left, I would recommend downloading this for a quick spin. But if you want straight answers, this is how I would score this out of a 10.
--------
Graphics: 7/10
--------
I like how the chopper blades spin as you move, but the flying obstacles could have been made a little bit more realistic.
--------
Enjoyment:7/10
--------
This game is good for trash talking to your friends about how you can beat their high score, but after a while you might realize that it's just impossible to get any better.
--------
Originality:9/10
--------
I admit that I would have never come up with the idea for a helicopter with actual spinning blades and realistic weight physics, but I feel that the whole "flying through a tunnel" scheme has been used way too much.
--------
Memory: 10/10
--------
You get the whole package without an astronomical amount of memory space being used up.
--------
Overall rating:9/10
--------

“Chopper” is a good game, but not one that you'll probably keep in your memory bank for too long.

Well, what is there to say about this game? It's a side-scrolling tunnel-like game. Although the are an overabundance of these tunnel games, this one still manages to be enjoyable. Here's the breakdown:

Graphics: 6/10

It's a tunnel game, how good of graphics can it have? The title screen is nicely drawn and the in-game graphics like the chopper itself has some descent animation, but that's about all there is to look at. Bottom line: As good as a tunnel game could be.

Controls: 8/10

Very responsive. When you press a button, the game does some right away. Nothing more to say, because there is basically no menu (besides the speed and difficulty prompt). Bottom line: Very responsive controls.

Attention Span: 4/10

Although it is very good for a tunnel game, it is still a tunnel game. I had fun with it for an hour or two, but it became boring fast. Time-Til-Boredom: 2+ hours

Overall: 6/10

Descent game, good graphics where there needs to be, fast paced and slow paced (whatever you want), small attention span. If you are a fan of tunnel games, get this. If not, don't.
