Greg is back to tell us all about a classic arcade side-scroller!


Greg takes a look back at Black Tiger, the 1987 game, and it's brutal difficultly that made it stand out on this week's Arcade Corner. Please take a look.

      Black Tiger was an awesome game, rad vid man as always.

      Capcom was ahead of its time pretty much through out the whole Arcade era.

      This is one of my all time favorite arcade games. It is still legit: a good, deep, skill based, exploring, platforming brawler. Even a little randomness to the levels as far as enemy spawn timings and amount of Zenny they drop.
      Heh. I saw the Roadblasters spot and was like "WHERE IS THE BLACK TIGER I WAS PROMISED!?!" Oh. I missed it.
