There’s a lot of video games where you discover shops hundreds of miles below the Earth’s surface, and you’d figure that the proprietor would be a bit more eager to haggle considering there isn’t much foot traffic down there.

I liked this game! You had this cool weapon where you threw knives all over the place, and there were lots of secrets to find, which is enough of a winning combination when you’re 14. The C64 version was pretty well done although the music wore out its welcome by the time you finished the first level.

One thing I thought was neat was that the currency in Black Tiger was the Zenny, which was the same currency in Forgotten Worlds. More games need to use the Zenny, it’s a valid form of video game currency and the coins are about six feet tall.

Oh and I never found a tiger in it, I hope someone at Capcom got fired for that blunder.
