It's whirlybird time again as you get in a spin rescuing clones - though why you should want to I don't know. Seen one, seen 'em all.

Twenty three budget screens of chopper action in all, in a very standard (I mean, just how standard can you get?) dodge and bomb sprite based arcade game. Land screen right where the Xerox Man will board; take off; dodge what look like jelly beans, the projectiles from the ship and the deadly homing ducks. Drop unlimited bombs though be careful as some of your opponents actually breed by having twenty tons of TNT dropped on them. Land on a ledge, screen left, when the ledge above it flashes white and the man disembarks, Next man; beat the clock; try to stay awake.

It may hold the attention for thirty minutes but I can't see any critical player coming back for more.
