Chopper 2 (universal)

Update - Chopper 2 has now been approved, and will be available on the App Store from Tuesday 27th July.

Chopper 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the best selling App Store classic Chopper.



Chopper 2 features 36 action packed missions over 12 unique and beautiful locations. It features a completely re-written 3D game engine, all new enemies, weapons, graphics, and missions, while still retaining the classic side scrolling game-play.



Escort a convoy of vehicles across the desert, or defend a train from enemies emerging from underground mines. Use your laser sight to line up enemies emerging from stairwells in the city. Chase down lines of enemy tanks and choppers while avoiding heat seeking missiles, gunfire and bird strike. Help your allies defend against advancing armies, and rescue stranded civilians, all while trying to complete your mission as fast as possible for the highest score.

Chopper 2 features OpenFeint leaderboards and achievements. It is universal for iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch, with HD graphics on both the iPad and iPhone 4. It uses the gyroscope where it can for increased control, OpenAL for spatial sound effects and even features an amazing 17 minute long original soundtrack.



If you have both an iPad and an iPhone, you can use the fantastic remote control feature to wirelessly control the iPad with an iPhone over bluetooth. Then plug the iPad into a TV or display through the component cable or VGA adapter and play Chopper 2 on your TV from your couch! (Note: TV output is only supported from an iPad, and only when using the bluetooth remote control feature.)

Chopper 2 Universal for iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad has been submitted to Apple for review, and should be in the App Store before the end of July.

Thanks Aside from the tilt and bluetooth control methods, Chopper 2 does also have an analog stick control method which puts a virtual joystick on the left and the weapon buttons on the right.

Whoops, I should probably have mentioned that. Chopper 2 will be priced at $4.99, but you can expect a launch sale.
