Paratrooper - 1.1.2

A remake of the classic paratrooper game

Bart Spaans

A loose remake of the classic Paratrooper game (found here) with enhanced graphics and gameplay.

Paratrooper is a game in which you control a cannon at the ground. Helicopters and eventually airplanes fly by and drop respectively paratroopers and bombs, which try to blow up your base. It's your job to stop them and to shoot everything that moves.


Left and Right arrows: change the cannon's angle.
Spacebar/up arrow: shoot, stop auto-shoot
a: enable auto shoot
q: back to menu


Balanced the game. Both helicopters and paratroopers will be generated less frequently. The game has become pretty playable by now; apart from some glitches.

Helicopters now start with a randomised speed. From tediously show to super fast, to keep you on your toes.

Also fixed the highscores. When your game is over, the game will update the highscores and show them to you instead of quit.

Coming in feature releases

In other words: known bugs.
* A fully working options menu.
* Easy, Medium and Hardcode modes.
* Airplanes with bombs
* Other weapons (rocket launchers, guns)
* Enhanced graphics
