The player commands a helicopter gunship in three different environments - Middle East, Central America and Indonesia - and must pursue objective targets across a large map. Different targets require differently weaponry and a different approach, and the player can change their craft mid-mission to suit the mission. The game adapts the SNES's Mode 7 technology when traversing across each region. The helicopters include: the OH-6D Defender, the Boeing AH-64 Apache and the AH-94A Valkyrie.
The game features two modes that include a second player: competitive and co-op. Even in the competitive mode, where the only mission objective is to destroy the other player, both players still need to be wary of enemy ground units.
