Okay, I have been trying to figure this out for a couple years and I know that someone here will know this ;)
There was a helicopter game in the arcades maybe around 1986.... it had a trigger-grip joystick and IIRC there was some other odd feature to the "real" cabinet-
Anyways, it had boards that alternated between top-view and 3-rd person (from behind) 3-d
I think it was called "thunderblade" or "-cade" or some such thing... I want to at least DL an emulation of it if possible.....

Anyone????

I know this will be zero help, but I can see the game you're talking about in my head. If you hadn't asked the name, I probably could tell you. :)

Hmmmmm...
Chux- uhhh thanks :beard:
KH- definitely not tiger-heli, but Thunderhawk could be correct, I will keep trying...
I'm pretty sure it was a Williams game, if that helps.....

There was an arcade game called Thunder Blade (http://www.klov.com/game_detail.php?letter=T&game_id=10094). It just happens to be a helicopter game and came out around 1987 by Sega. It has a trigger-grip joystick and just happens to have the odd features that it vibrates and has a throttle.
