Yeah, did a doubletake as well. BZ1 and even 2 to a extent, were very cool games.

Wtf, a new version of Choplifter!? To the Googlemobile!

Choplifter HD, on Steam for 10 bucks. Dammit. My Steam library will continue to grow, it seems.

UGH. Like others, I saw this title and almost shit my pants.

But no, this is not a remake/continuation of Battlezone/Battlezone II, ie two of my favorite games, all time.

On the other hand, it does appear to be some sort of ripoff of that classic game, Airlift or whatever it was called, the side scrolling chopper game from the 80s where you rescued PoWs and could randomly shoot up everything else? I played the hell out of that in my Apple II days.

*Note to developers: never, NEVER, use the name Battlezone.

Think your talking about Choplifter? in which they just did make a new version of...

Anyhow, it seems they don't know their own audience, or perhaps side stepping it... Does it play with a flight stick? Or is it arcade?

Trolling? We are talking about the 1998 BattleZone.

I think it was a joke.

Yeah I was hoping it was a BattleZone reboot also.

Bad move, naming it Battlezone. I was disappointed as well seeing it wasn't releated to the seminal Battlezone series.

Good point, I was rather disappointed also, and just switched off!
