David Frampton of Majic Jungle Software has released to us the first gameplay video from his upcoming game Chopper 2. Chopper was one of the original launch titles for the App Store and has been a huge success over the past year. The original Chopper [$2.99 / Free] has sold over 300,000 copies and continues to do well.
Chopper 2 adopts a new 3D look while keeping the basic 2D gameplay. Frampton's goals for the sequel included "realistic and beautiful graphics" alongside approachable gameplay.
Chopper 2 is still in development and will expand on the basic gameplay of the original with many different enemies and mission types, including defending towers from attacking enemies and destroying moving caravans of enemy troops. Here's an early look at the new 3D effects:
Chopper 2 is expected to be available by the end of the year.
