[Game]

Cliff Hanger is a laserdisc video game that was released by Stern Electronics in 1983. It uses animation from two Lupin III films, most prominently The Castle of Cagliostro, as well as The Mystery of Mamo. Like many laserdisc games, it is a reactive game which requires the player to press a button or move the joystick in a particular direction when prompted by the game to progress the storyline. The segments from The Mystery of Mamo use the original English dub commissioned by Toho, while the segments from The Castle of Cagliostro use a dub created for the game.

The game’s plot is based very loosely on that of The Castle of Cagliostro, and follows Cliff (Arsène Lupin III) as he attempts to rescue Clarissa (Lady Clarisse d’Cagliostro) from the evil Count Draco (in some materials called “Dreyco”[1] and in the instruction manual “Dragoe”), who wants to marry her. Cliff is aided in his quest by Jeff (Daisuke Jigen) and Samurai (Goemon Ishikawa XIII).

The original version of Cliff Hanger features an animated sequence of Cliff being hanged at the gallows immediately following the “miss” animation sequence. The sequence was taken from the opening sequence of The Mystery of Mamo (where Lupin was supposedly hanged in Transylvania), plus a later scene in the same film. According to the instruction manual, a setting on the game cabinet’s logic board would allow the individual owners/operators the option of not playing the sequence if they so chose.

Cliff Hanger was released as the novelty of laserdisc games waned, thus many cabinets were destroyed or converted over time. Unlike other laserdisc arcade games, Cliff Hanger can work perfectly on MAME as well as DAPHNE, a laserdisc-game emulator.

The game was considered for inclusion on the American Blu-ray release of The Castle of Cagliostro by Discotek Media, however, due to an inability to find the original contracts for the game, it was left off the release.[

    Il miglior laser game in assoluto. Ricordi incredibili in salagiochi a guardare qualcuno più bravo andare più avanti. Era veramente difficile. Ma a rivederlo ora grandi soddisfazioni. Chissà se avessero fatto il gioco di Conan! Chissà magari esiste!

    As I was watching this just now, I was waving my hand like I was playing the game. Right, Right, Right, Right, Hand to kill that first Ninja. I still remember the hours playing it. I was shocked when I finally beat it! Played again the next night with my girlfriend watching. Call it showing off, but I beat the game that night too!

    Could you imagine if they used these voices for the actual dub of the movies.

    If I remember correctly, you don't actually control anything in the game but try to match YOUR moves to the CHARACTER'S moves. It removed the need to have the laserdisc pause to skip to the relevant part, but it also made for an uninteresting game (to play). The Don Bluth laserdisc games (Dragon's Lair 1 & 2 and Space Ace) were a huge cut above the rest. The lack of good content is one of the reasons that laserdisc games died out.

    It should be noted that the Helicopter scene from the Mystery of Mamo clip in the game uses some audio from the Frontier Enterprises dub, which is why the sound quality sounds different from the rest of the game.

    A samurai who just happened to be inside the sewer system jumped in the air and cut the blades off a helicopter…. think about that for a moment

    6:51 That is not "Samurai". That is Guemon. Guemon was a real man in Japan; he was caught thieving and in the village there was a huge cauldron that all the food for the village was cooked in, and the cauldron had no name. Guemon was boiled to death in the cauldron, and from that time on, they called it a Guemon.

    This game used to be at the Karcher Mall in Napa, Id; I was from Baker, so I only got to play this game once.
