Choplifter has a rather unusual story in that it began as a computer game before it became an arcade game. The game first appeared on the Apple ][ platform and was then ported to other home computer & home gaming platforms. The game has echos of the 1979 hostage crises in that the player flies a helicopter over the desert while attempting to pick up people and bring them to safety.

The museum's copy of Choplifter has a damaged case and will not stick together without an elastic or something like this.
