Cliff Hanger

Company: Stern
Release Date: 1983
Genre: Action

This was a Dragon's Lair clone that used footage from The Castle of Cagliostro and The Mystery of Mamo; only 550 machines (claim in doubt at this point) were made making the laserdisc from the game a rare collectible. Using the joystick and two action buttons, one for your hands and one for your feet, you made various choices of what Cliff (Lupin) should do as the action unfolds before you. Jumper settings inside the machine allowed on-screen hints to appear.

The best site for more information is at The Dragon's Lair Project. In one episode of Macross, someone in the background is playing the car chase scene from the game.
