  • Since we played with an iPhone clone, we also played with a clone of a classic game. It’s called Choppa and copies Choplifter a bit, if you remember the classic from many years ago. We played the game on the Blackview Ultra Plus and it’s a free game in the Play Store.

    It debuted on iOS in April 2016 and it’s an arcade, blocky and retro title, that has an unusual control. It requires you to place two fingers at the top of the screen to lift you vertically and two fingers at the bottom to descend, also vertically. You’ll have to control a chopper and rescue people, after a big oil spill, dodging volcanoes, explosions and more.

    The graphics are pixel art material, hand drawn and the music is great, a throwback to the 80s with synths and heavy guitars. At its core Choppa is an arcade physics based game, with procedurally generated stages, but don’t let that name scare you. Levels may be generated randomly, but sometimes the pattern repeats and you can figure out a way through the maze of obstacles.

    The thing that’s annoying here is that the chopper flies in a diagonal rather than straight line, so that may pose some problems. You can buy new choppers, upgrade armor, engines, rescue gear and more and I generally enjoyed the experience of playing Choppa. I loved the concept and even though it was hard, the game is worth a download.

    You can get the game here and we give it an 8.4 out of 10.
