Stunt Copter is an old Mac game made by Duane Blehm, in 1987. Duane passed away a few years ago. But we've converted Stunt Copter to Mac OS X, so this generation of Mac gamers can have the chance to try out this old classic, and veteran gamers can have a nostalgia trip back to the days ;)

on a similar topic - StuntCopter is available for the iPhone/ipod touch on the app store. Looks great - they really stayed true to the original design!
Highly recommend you check it out.

I emailed the developer who responded immediately and solved the 10.4.11 problem. So, re-download ...and enjoy. Well done.

It is a decent recreation of an old classic, and still fun to play. However, it freezes you entire system (at least on a 400 megahertz comp) if you have it behind the Dock or open a menu. I would expect better from a clone of an application that ran fine on my 8 megahertz Mac Plus!

This game needs to default to a 512x344 window to be truly faithful to the original. Having to hide the Dock, since this app is dumb with regards to sizing, hurts the convenience of having this game. (Allowing drops from the top of a 1024x768 screen distorts the scoring system of the game...)

I played this game on my dad's Mac SE when I was six years old (I'm 22). This really takes me back - thank you so much for porting it!

This gets 2 stars just for being stuntcopter, and 1 more for being 1.0. Slow gameplay (java to blame?), bad sound, a few glitches (window size/location and movement). If these are cleaned up (they seem like easy fixes to me, but I'm not the developer), this could push 4+ stars. Glad to see a great classic back! :D

I was SO THRILLED to see this app ...what memories. However, the app will not load for me! I'm running 10.4.11 on a PowerBook G4. Ant suggestions?

You should contact the developer, of course...

I can't open it either. 10.4.11 on a Power Mac G5. Check out console.log when you try to open Stunt Copter; for me it looks like some kind of a java error. I'm going to paste it into my e-mail to the developer. I couldn't find a specific crash.log for it.
