Airwolf is a side-scrolling shooter based on the 1980s TV series of the same name. A division of the CIA builds itself a hi-tech helicopter in secrecy and codenames it "AirWolf". Armed with advanced weaponry, it is able to stand up to most types of enemy resistance. Given missions by intelligence agent Archangel, Airwolf is sent around to world on top-secret missions to quell trouble.
Before each mission, the player is briefed and allowed to choose a primary and secondary weapon for Airwolf's firing buttons. From this, Airwolf then fires at enemies that appear on the screen and approaches a boss weapon. The game then switches to first-person, where the boss must be targeted in different locations.

Just like TV show! (with the loop-de-loops)
Watch the old show on youtube then fire up this fine game in Firefox or Chrome. Press 1 to start / insert coin and plug in a USB game controller for Defender / Choplifter like side scrolling fun without wasting time rescuing hostages.
Not sure why the enemy helicopters and jets don't shoot back but watch out for the tanks. You are outnumbered but not outgunned.
Avoid getting killed for high score. Press both buttons 1 & 2 to loop-de-loop!
