''[=StuntCopter=]'' was a {{shareware}} game for the AppleMacintosh developed by Duane Blehm from 1986-1988. It was the most popular among a handful of games he designed before his untimely death, after which his parents made it [[FreewareGames freeware]].

In the game, you control a helicopter that must drop a stuntman into a horse-drawn haywagon. [[ScoringPoints Points are awarded]] based on the height of a successful jump.

[[VideoGameRemake Remakes]] for [[http://antell.com/software/games.html OS X]], [[http://www.nerdgames.ca/stuntcopter/ iPhone]], and [[https://itunes.apple.com/app/id492175302 iPad]] now exist. [[http://macintoshgarden.org/games/stuntcopter The original]] is playable on modern computers via emulation.

!!This game contains examples of:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation -- [[invoked]]From the iPhone port's homepage: "Does he fall or is he pushed? That's not for us to decide."
* {{Automaton Horse|s}} -- It never misses a step.
* EasyLevelTrick -- There's nothing forcing you to challenge yourself. You can get the copter into perfect sync with the wagon from just pixels above it, click five times to beat the level, and continue racking up points in this way indefinitely.
* GravityScrew -- A helpful readout informs you of the Earth's current mass, eg. NORMAL, HEAVY, or OH BOY.
* NotTheFallThatKillsYou -- Later versions expand the gameworld to fit any size of monitor--and even from miles in the air, the haywagon is enough to ensure a safe landing.
* VictoryPose -- A backflip.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential -- Despite it resulting in an instant GameOver, many players prefer to drop the stuntman onto the horse or driver.
