It’s Rolling Thunder meets Indiana Jones! Released in 1990 by Data East, this multi-stage action platformer unfortunately never saw the light of day in the United States due to the regional release suddenly being canceled. Each level is highly action-packed as one or two players will find themselves whipping bad guys while driving a boat or a car, only to later finding themselves fighting for their lives on top of an airplane. I briefly played this game on MAME, and while it was fun to check out, MAME could not correctly display the moving backgrounds that the game contained. Thankfully, the iiRcade version functions just like the Japanese arcade original. It’s great to see that this game will finally get looked at by a bigger audience as it truly is a hidden gem. One of the deeper cuts of games available on the iiRcade library, The Cliffhanger: Edward Randy, is a must-have for action fans.
Edward Randy can be purchased for the iiRcade Cabinet by visiting the iiRcade store here: https://store.iircade.com/games/92
