Choplifter HD: Classic Apple II Game Coming to PSN / PC

We’ve heard about quite a few video game reboots recently, but none can possibly be as unusual as a 21st century remake of the ancient but classic Apple II game Choplifter. The new game — which is titled Choplifter HD — is coming to the PSN and PC sometime in the autumn.

According to a recent article by Fred Dutton over on the website, the upcoming Choplifter HD game is being developed by inXile Entertainment, who also happens to be the developer behind the much-awaited third-person action game Hunted: The Demon’s Forge.

For those that don’t know what Choplifter is, it’s a Broderbund-published game originally launched on the Apple II back in 1982. The original, which became a huge hit and was later ported to other platforms, had players ferrying hostages between the enemy bases and their own headquarters.

The new Choplifter HD versions will feature a total of 20 missions, which will range from saving survivors or viral outbreaks to extracting captured POWs. InXile boss Brian Fargo says that the feedback they’ve received on creating a new take on the Choplifter game has been really positive.

You can view a trailer of the upcoming game via the website. Have you ever heard of the Choplifter game before now?
