This is the game of the incredibly popular TV show, about an incredibly fast and dangerous helicopter, taking on all kinds of bad guys and despot governments.
The helicopter had the usual rotors, but also jet engines (though if a helicopter had real jets it would rip the rotors off) and was incredibly well armed, with sophistcated weaponry and computers, far beyond the 1980s.
The game has you flying the helicopter largely in underground caves, with almost no room to move, and precision movement needed to avoid the traps, all while trying to hold the copter in the air.
Not a terribly easy game, and a bit of a let down for fans of the series.
