Tiger Road

( my first attempt... Ohh I'm so goooooood at this game! )

Tiger Road was released in 1989 by US Gold but I've always felt it didn't really do justice to the awesome arcade original. From the very beginning, you're thrown into an instant hack & slash action scenes battling a constant hoard of stupid bad guys so pick up your axe and thrash your way to victory! Well, that's easier said than done because the enemies don't ever give you a moments peace and the larger baddies are a pain in the rear end - it's so difficult to kill these guys and is made worse by little visual feedback to help show if you're doing it right.

It looks pretty nice but didn't really come across very well and sometimes felt like a different game. I know the Atari ST is capable of far better. Having said all this, Tiger Road does have its moments and is a pretty fun beat 'em up. It's good but I feel that far more could have been done with this conversion. There are better on the Atari ST.

( my second attempt.. okay, a slightly better performance? )
