I am looking for a Helicopter game of my childhood.....I am unfortunately not remembering the name...but I remember the game in which
1) User have a control of Helicopter with options of ordinary fire and some limited explosion options under the was a 2D game with screen as top view of heli and enemy's tanks firing on heli.......the screen moves from top to bottom with a defined constant speed and heli has to either destroy all the enemies tanks etc. or to save himself from their fires untill they vanish out of screen ......
2) there were stages of game and heli takes off and land in start and end of stage......
3) there were also an option of small heli coming from top to bottom while user's heli moves from bottom to top.....and if user succeed to touch this small heli it joins with original big heli and fires range exceed .....
4) if any enemy's fire strike this small heli...the original heli stays there still to fight....
can any body help me in finding this game

I loved those text based adventure games, I had a lot, I can't remember their names, The hobbit stands out amongst them.
Zaxxon was a defender style game but played not from the side perspective, but rather from the side and rear so your ship was at a 45 degree angle.
Other games I liked were:
Tetris, elite, SimCity, Pole position, Luna Lander, paper boy, Gunship (apache helicopter game) F-18 Interceptor, F117a-Stealth.
