Game Details

Pretty graphics, loads of enemies to take out, two player (alternating) gameplay makes this game one of the best shoot'em-ups ever. Differences to Twin Cobra (US/World version of the same game) are that when you die, you start a little bit behind whereas in Twin Cobra you just continue where you died. Ultimate Tiger also do not allow two player simultaneous play which made Twin Cobra the hit it became. The game was created by Toaplan for Taito as the sequel of Tiger Heli.
