Game Details

The animation was purely Japanese in style. Gameplay was more complicated than Dragon's Lair, utilizing a combination of a 4 way joystick and hands and feet buttons. More difficult patterns had to be mastered in order to complete Cliff Hanger. This machine utilized a Pioneer 8210 laserplayer and double boardset. Member Ratings / Comments

I never could conquer Dragon's Lair or Space Ace, but I managed to beat Cliff Hanger...I just HAD to see how it ended! Years later, I discovered the Lupin III movie "Castle of Cagliostro" on video, which was the main source for the animated sequences :)" 2003-08-28 07:22:29Z
