Choplifter III is a helicopter shoot 'em up originally released on the Super Nintendo. It is the second sequel to the 1982 Apple-II game Choplifter, and follows a similar structure. The player must use their helicopter to collect POWs from horizontally looping stages, emancipating them from their prisons by destroying the walls, evading or eliminating their captors and returning them back to the allied helipad.
Choplifter III was released on the SNES in early 1994. It was soon followed by a Game Boy port. A Game Gear game was released with the name Choplifter III, but this is actually an adaptation of Choplifter II.
