Description

Over 2 million downloads! You are Rick Guiver, a reckless coast guard rescue helicopter pilot. A terrible oil rig catastrophe has happened in the coast! Against your superiors' orders and better judgement you jump in your helicopter and fly to the danger zone! There's no time to lose, save as many people as you can! Choppa is a physics based arcade and action game with touch controls, procedurally generated stages and 1980's style rock music. The main draw of the game is progressing through randomly generated levels and saving as many people as possible at the risk of exploding or falling to the sea. Players will be able to purchase new helicopters, upgrade armor, engines and rescue gear and complete challenging missions while aiming for the top score. Game Center and Google Play Games leaderboards are supported.

History

After Go! Go! Meatball Antti and Ville decided it was time to make a type of free-to-play game with some proper new ideas. They wanted a physics-based game and a setting that gives players the opportunity to save lives rather than take them inspired them both. From a very early prototype they knew Choppa was going to be a fun game whatever they did, so Antti and Ville tried their best to make it as fun as possible. The game has been in development since November 2015 and is rapidly nearing launch. It has already been soft launched in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Finland.
