Chopper I is a scrolling shooter for the arcade developed and published by SNK in 1988.


I played this game randomly in MAME. I found it to be pretty awful and haven't considered it since.


I do not own this game, nor have I beaten it.


  • Overall: 1/10

— This section contains spoilers! —


  • The bosses are large and interesting.
  • The graphics are pretty attractive.


  • This graphics are pretty low-quality for a 1988 arcade release.
  • The game is obscenely difficult, too hard for the average gamer to enjoy.
  • There is only one upgradable gun. Kind of dull compare to other shooters of the time which usually have three or more.
  • There is little variety in the game, you'll see most of what the game has to offer by the end of the first stage.
  • The idea of having walls and towers block bullets is a good idea, but it gets over-used in the later areas and becomes annoying.
  • When you die, you are sent back to a previous check point, which is annoying.


  • The game forces you to play the entire game twice to beat it. This is a shameless way to make a game longer than it is. There's nothing wrong with letting a player play a harder second run, but they actually made this part of the game's story!
