[From the box:]
Conceived and designed by Bob Whitehead for one or two players.
You're piloting a helicopter gunship, flying cover for a truck convoy of medical supplies through enemy territory. Suddenly, your long-range scanner shows squadrons of enemy aircraft closing in your position.
You throw the control stick forward and your chopper shoots skyward, barely avoiding a cluster of multi-warhead missiles. Your response is swift, as you pivot your gunship 180 degrees, unleashing a lightning barrage of laser rockets.
The action: furious. The concentration: intense. You are engaged in one of the most demanding video battles ever conceived. You must rely on your long-range scanner, your wits, and your reflexes. Because it's your responsibility to see that those supplies get through.
So, take charge -- you're at the controls, with Chopper Command by ACTIVISION.
[From the instruction manual:]
The object of the game is to accumulate as many points as possible by knocking out enemy aircraft, while protecting yourself and your truck convoys at the same time.
