Strike Force Foxx Is What You Get When You Mix Choplifter With The A-Team

Big John Games is putting the finishing touches to its next 3DS eShop game

Big John Games has revealed some details about its next 3DS eShop venture, entitled Strike Force Foxx.

Described by company president Ken Patterson as an "over the top" action title which "harkens back to '80s action style television shows" like Airwolf and The A-Team, Strike Force Foxx is a side-scrolling helicopter attack-and rescue game which is clearly inspired by the 1982 classic Choplifter.

The developer is putting the finishing touches to the game, but so far it has only released concept artwork and no actual screenshots. There's also no word on the release date.

Is this the kind of game you'd lay down some cash for on your 3DS? Let us know by leaving a comment below.

Well, I know I liked Glory Days, Desert Strike, and more recently Liberation Maiden. If it's a combination of these three, maybe with some Metal Slug charm, I'm at the very least interested. But when they're already putting the finishing touches to it, they'd need to have shown something more by now... Curious.

I remember playing Choplifter III on the SNES. I know there was a new title in the series recently but I always tend to wait for PSN sales unless desperate. If this looks good, may put down cash once more details are released. Licensed helos would be nice but based on that screenshot I doubt it, looks like an angular BK117.

Sounds cool. Now they need to back it up with some in-game and I'll get it on my radar.

Desert Strike, Jungle Strike... Man, I miss those games...
I want those on the 3DS VC!

I'm a big fan of choplifter back in the day. I will keep my eyes on this one and see how it works out. I love most of the 2d games on 3ds with those cool 3d multiscrolling effects. Its funny 20 years ago we went nuts if a sega Genny or SNES game had multi scrolling backgrounds. Back then I played mostly my TurboGrafx 16 and had been Importing games for it like crazy just for that reason. Omg 20 years went by in a flash!

@Windy It is funny that effect though. I think it works better with something like Astal even though it is a pure 2D game.

i hope its more of a helicopter sim and uses the 3d to move in all directions. i think the best one ever was forsaken64, i wish we would get that in 3d. that would be so awesome! it wasnt a heli sim but it let u move in any direction.

Be nice to see a choplifter game better than my favorite version on the colecovision. Hopefully this fits the bill better than the Game Boy titles.
