If you’re looking for even more Amiga goodness, then you’ve come to the right place. As thanks to our good friend Amiga Bill who streams top quality Amiga games through Twitch, we’ve been told that AcidBottle is working on an Amiga port of the classic Arcade game of ‘Tiger-Heli’. A game that was originally released back in 1985 in the Arcades and then ported over to the NES and Playstation. To coincide with this cool news story, we have some early footage of the game which is being created using Earok’s Scorpion Engine.
Here is what the Wikipedia says about the game from back in the day “Tiger-Heli is a vertically scrolling shooter game developed by Toaplan and released for arcades in 1985. It was published in Japan by Taito and in North America by Romstar. Controlling the titular attack helicopter, the player must fight endless waves of military vehicles while avoiding collision with their projectiles and other obstacles. The Tiger-Heli has a powerful bomb at its disposal that can clear the screen of enemies when fired. It was the first shoot ’em up game from Toaplan, and their third video game overall”.
