Game Information

SNES - Cliffhanger Box Art FrontSNES - Cliffhanger Box Art Back

Standard side-scrolling fighter based off of the Stallone film of the same name. Sly must fight thugs and the elements as he tracks down suitcases of stolen cash dropped around the peaks of the Rockies. Combat follows the Final Fight standard, broken up by some mountain climbing and running (or 3-D snowboarding on the Sega CD) from avalanches. Enemies are the standard brawler crooks, occasionally carrying guns and knives the player can pick up. The game tends to follow a pattern of having you deal with a natural hazard (scaling a cliff, leaping over gaps), then locking the screen down for a fighting segment, nature again, fighting again, etc. The available fighting moves is limited, compared to other games of this type, and the ability to hit an enemy character is noticeably less accurate. The plot is identical to the film, with levels based off of, or inspired by, scenes in the movie. Animated cutscenes move the story along on the cartridge systems, while brief clips from the film play between levels on the Sega CD.

Additional Information

Based on the 1993 movie starring Sylvester Stallone, Cliffhanger has you stepping into the boots of Gabe Walker, a mountain rescue specialist who must use his skills to battle villains in the Rocky Mountains. Cliffhanger is a side-scrolling action game consisting of seven levels that involves a man named Eric Qualen forcing you and your friend Hal to locate three missing cases lost in a plane crash. The catch? These metal cases aren't filled with clothes and personal belongings -- they hold $100 million in cash! As Walker you'll be able to climb or descend steep cliffs, rope-climb over chasms, and use your hands and feet to pummel any thugs or creatures standing in your way. Walker can also use knives or guns taken from the enemy as well as replenish lost energy by finding campfires. After each level, Walker will have to confront a boss character until he reaches the final showdown with Qualen himself.
