> TIGER ROAD by Go!


• Completed & reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

I was never too sure about this game. Whether it was the game play or the dodgy sprites, I just couldn't seem to get on with it. I know that the main problem is that I don't persist with a game if I instantly take a disliking to it. I had another go recently, but it just didn't capture my imagination.

Anyway, it's a hack and slash kind of game with platforms thrown in. It kind of looks a little like Bionic Commando on the Commodore 64, but it plays much worst. Here's the game ending...


The final level is complete.


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I'm not sure how I completed this one, but it was probably with a level skip and infinite lives trainer :)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: The final level is completed, and the ending kicks in with a screen that reads: "CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE TRIUMPHED OVER EVIL AND SET THE CHILDREN FREE. HOWEVER YOUR JOURNEY DOWN TIGER ROAD IS NOT COMPLETE. LOOKOUT FOR THE SEQUEL IN YOUR LOCAL COMPUTER STORE." This is accompanied by an ending tune.

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: Not much to say about this. It could have been so much better if it included a longer ending tune, some sprite animation and also some images. Someone's probably going to say that it mirrors the arcade version :)

  • Andy Vaisey: Never did a graphician manage to make some sprites look so pig ugly!

    And the boring text ending mentions a sequel. I can ...yawn...... hardly contain ...yawn... my excite...yawn...ment.

  • Brendan Phoenix: Wasn't Black Tiger the sequel to Tiger Road? Not too sure but rings a bell or is it just because it has the word Tiger in it.

    Actually for once, this does not mirror the arcade ending. The arcade had a pretty different epilogue and pics of lots of children gathered round your waist with their head down ( I kid you not ) it looks rather disgusting or do I have a sick mind.

    You then walk off hand in hand into the sunset with the children (shouldn't this have been the end to Moonwalker?)

    Any home version of a game that ends with those lame words about a sequel being in the shops soon should be met with the upmost contempt - I hate it! Grrrrr.

    From what I remember, I think this was a pretty poor conversion with several levels missing from the arcade original - seeing that they were missing, would make sense the end would be as well.

  • Andrew Fisher: Never liked the arcade game OR the conversion of this, terrible ending.

FINAL SAY: It's lacking in sustenance.

G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
