Cliffhanger was developed by Psygnosis and published by Spidersoft Limited in 1993
It is based on the homonymous film by Sylvester Stallone.
The main character, Gabe Walker, is an expert in high mountain search and rescue and receives a distress signal from a plane that crashed nearby. However, the plane is actually full of terrorists who have hijacked a large shipment of money.
The game action is lateral scrolling.
The hero can walk, run, jump, punch and kick while jumping. In addition, it can perform special feats based on the situation, such as crossing a rope suspended between two cliffs.
One of the most important threats in this game is nature. In fact, Gabe must defend himself against wolves and birds, from falling snow, from structures and falling rocks.
