Platform: Nintendo (NES)

A rather rare type of gameplay, atypical for platform-based shooting games. The player controls a combat helicopter (top view), while having complete freedom of choice in the direction of flight! The helicopter can take off and land on an aircraft carrier, accelerate forward or backward, turn to any angle, shoot and throw bombs. You will have to fly both over water (where you need to shoot at boats and ships) and over land (where guns are installed in enemy cities, tanks drive). The graphics are modest, but tasteful, especially considering that the game was released in 1985. Perhaps the most interesting helicopter flying game on the NES.
