Better late than never! I finally picked up the boxed Amiga version of Tiger Claw and it arrived this week. 2nd place. It was later built out as a 64KB cartridge version in a Kickstarter.The story behind Tiger Claw goes all the way back to 2014, as it was originally an impressive homage and recreation of the classic C64 Bruce Lee. In 2014 Matthias Bock & Saul Cross submitted it to he 16KB RGCD competition and it earned
By 2016 the carts were all sold out and the game became available for download on itch.io.
Fast forward to 2018 and the game was ported to several platforms including Amiga. Pop your champagne, boys and girls, because they developed it for both NTSC and PAL, and aimed not at AGA machine but the most popular of all: a 1MB equipped A500 running OS 1.3 (which any Amiga should be able to play). What a gigantic breath of fresh air!
And I must say, the packaging is awe inspiring. It's easily some of the finest packaging ever made for any Amiga game. And the feelies are simply sensational.
Mine came on CD as well as floppy. And I was able to simply copy the files on the floppy to my hard drive and everything worked flawlessly.
This right here is how new games for the Amiga should be made (and they should probably ask for more money than they do, as I don't think any of the devs have really made any $ out of this from what I've read).
I feel bad I waited this long to support this incredible effort. But better late than never! I'll give this a solid play through and review in the coming months. It's hard! And it's fun.
