Selecting 'options' and then checking the 'skip cave levels' box and then clicking the 'ok' button causes everything to hang. Clicking anywhere on the 'preferences' background causes the 'ok' button to turn blue again. Reclicking the 'ok' button causes chopper to terminate.

Really cool game, well done, easy to control and use, and now it's free. Every Mac user should give it a try. Clooney would say : Chopper, what else ?

Chopper is a nice little game. I beat the freeware version, then bought the shareware version and beat it, too. The game is addictive, because you always want to see the next level. However, after you beat it, the thrill is over. Before you beat the game, you always have a desire to see how much farther you can get. Still, I'm not upset I paid $10 for the shareware version of Chopper. I figured it was only fair to the programmers since I'd beaten the freeware version. I might as well buy the shareware version with extra levels, right? All in all, it's a nice little and a cheap thrill ride. Hooray for Chopper!

I bought this game several months ago and it's still bloody addictive. At the 'hard' level I'm still trying to get past the mad scientist's bunker (okay, I'm not a good gamer), and I would love to see a cheat-- well, maybe not precisely a cheat-- that lets me "save game" at the level I'm on. This would make it less arcade-like, of course, but when I get a phone call or a colleague walks in and I have to shut down the game (and can't simply pause it) I hate to start all over again. Okay, just whining. But it's a lot of fun and well worth $10.

Oh, not that I use them, but some of the "cheats" don't work anymore. They include: - Slow motion - Skip a level The only one that work is the "FPS", but I don't think I need that. What is it anyway? All I know of FPS is "feet per second", "frames per second", etc. Why would I need to know how fast I'm going, and how is that cheating?

Why is it suddenly shareware? 1.0.4 was nearly as good and it was freeware! I wish it was still free, because now after I updated, it's giving me a limit of the numbers of more days I can play it. Great game, but soon I won't be able to play it. Oh, by the way, it's graphics are good, but the "crashes", people dying, and buildings falling down aren't realistic.

A rather simple game but very, very well made. Gameplay and graphic has always been outstanding and Chopper was the only app I truly missed after switching to Intel. In v1.1 though, graphics is almost too good and too detailed. I find it difficult to see enemies and civilians - actually the missions in where visibility is best are the night missions. Also, the four new levels does not really pop up among my favourite ones. I'd wish for a little differences in the design of the enemies - the more detailed they get, the more they look like clones of each other instead of individuals. Still, Chopper is a fabulous game. If Chopper had been shareware before, I'd have paid already a long time ago.

Armor Alley it's not, but none the less equally as good! No problems with 10.4.9 and a MacIntel. Keep up the great work at Majic Jungle Software!

Great game but could you not use cmd-e for end game but esc. And for fullscreen use the same key for both leaving and entering fullscreen. Sometimes I pause the game and go out off full screen then when I come back to the game I have to press a different key. Once I tried to leave the game using cmd-f and it fired a rocket into a building.

Graphics, Music, sounds and gameplay: everything is polished and nice to look at. For a freeware, it kicks ass. It reminds me Silkworm or even older, Defender. It has a lot of fun, and the difficulty level increases in a smart way, adding new challenges without making it too hard. Excellent !

This game is great and lots of fun. However it always crashes since I updated to 10.3.6. I reinstalled and it still won't launch. It gets to the Windowed screen for startup and then crashes. Any ideas from anyone? Hopefully an updated will come soon.
