Hello again, guys. Any fans of arcade, helicopters and side scrolling shooter games? C.H.O.P.S. is now live on the App Store. It's a very solid arcade game with nice progression and upgrades for the choppers and weapons. Some great retro graphics as well!

Let me know what you think! Any feedback is welcome as always!

This is a really fun, challenging game! I'm really glad I got it and liked it so much, I paid to remove the ads. It's got awesome retro-style graphics and great, repeated playabilty. I love the backgrounds and I hope you keep adding to the already nice variety of choppers, weapons and bad guys (even more variety in bad guys would be great.) Great game!

EDIT: Ok, I'm really digging this game so far. I started it up and next thing I know, I killed an hour. Definitely worth a download if your into shmups like this.

Great to know you're digging it!

@Echoen Since we develop for a variety of platforms, adding leader boards is not very straight forward. But I'll add it to our backlog, this game could really do with Game Center.

Yea, this was/is a REALLY good game. I played the hell outta this for quite awhile. I'll have to check, but if I'm not mistaken, there's another helicopter game really similar to this that released like a month or 2 ago. . I know I have it on my phone somewhere. I just have to find out what week it released. (I have all my folders categorized by release weeks. It's a mess.) But, yea. This game is pretty legit.

EDIT: Ok, I finally found it. It's by the same developer/publisher called Birds of Glory. VERY similar gameplay. It has more of a cartoon drawing art style, rather than the pixel art and this one is mission based. I'm not sure if it's got an endless mode yet. F2P, so it's worth checking out. So far, it's pretty decent.
