Black Tiger


Black Tiger is one of those games I have loved since it was first released. Well, today I played it once again, after what feels like a lifetime away, and it's still a good arcade conversion. Sadly, my old joystick doesn't work well moving diagonally so you'll see lots of silly mistakes in my video. Honestly, it's the joystick this time (and not me!).

  
Weee!! Leap your way through the labyrinth, clinging to anything that may help ya...

However, I must say that the controls are responsive and the gameplay is so much fun. Also, this game looks great and I think the graphics are gorgeous. Sure, the screen size is slightly reduced but the scrolling keeps up with the action and looks quite nice compared to the ace arcade original. Yeah, I really love this game.

Overall, this is pretty faithful to the original and I feel US Gold did good, considering they ignored the STe hardware which would have been a huge deal. Still, this is one of my fave Atari ST games because it's just so much fun to play. Download either the floppy disk via Old Games Finder or the hard disk version by Klaz!

  
Oh no, skeleton monsters!!! KILL THEM. In fact, why not blast everything? It's fun!
