LHX Attack Chopper (LHXアタックチョッパー) is a 1990 helicopter combat simulator for IBM PCs by Electronic Arts ported to the Sega Mega Drive in 1992.

Gameplay

LHX Attack Chopper is a 3D helicopter combat simulator in which players pilot US army helicopters from the Light Helicopter Experimental programme of the 1980s. The game is presented in 3D with flat-shaded polygon models.

Versions

The Mega Drive version of LHX Attack Chopper contains the majority of features of the original IBM PC game, however as a very low frame rate, typical of 3D games of this time. Slowdown is particularly apparent when objects are close to the camera, though the experience (in terms of speed) is likely not too far removed from the IBM version running with the minimum requirements.
