The Video Game Critic (B+)

For some odd reason your bomb count isn't displayed on the screen, and that's irritating because it's hard to remember if you have any left. Since you can't fire backwards, bombs are critical for destroying enemies that approach from behind. One cool feature is how you can augment your firepower by hooking up with smaller helicopters that latch onto you and fire forward or sideways. Once you hook up two of these, you're nearly unstoppable. Tiger-Heli's animation is a little rough, which is probably the reason why no two-player simultaneous mode was included.

The graphics in Tiger-Heli are decent. You could call them three-dimensional because the ground enemies are on a different plane than you. You cannot move three-dimensionally though, but that really isn't necessary for this kind of game. The use of color and many different textures make Tiger-Heli look ahead of its time. The scenery and backgrounds are organic and lifelike, not metallic or mechanical.

Finalement, tout cela est fort classique, et l'historique de la situation n'a que peu d'importance en regard de l'action qui nécessite une certaine pratique si l'on veut profiter pleinement d'une cartouche qui comblera les fanas de la destruction systématique. Mais aprÚs tout, on se défoule comme on peut et ça ne fait de mal à personne.

Auf Grund von einigen technischen MĂ€ngeln (flackernde Sprites, mieser Sound etc) kann und darf ich der NES-Version leider keinen ASM-HITSTERN verpassen. Was bleibt, ist gute Durchschnittsballerware fĂŒr alle NES-Fans.

Tiger Heli ist mal wieder ein gelungenes Shoot-'em-Up Spiel fĂŒr das NES. Die Grafiken sind gut gemacht, und auch der Sound konnte mich ĂŒberzeugen. Es gehört zwar nicht unbedingt zu den schwersten Shoot 'em-Ups, die ich bisher gespielt habe, aber es hat auch seine Reize, die einen immer wieder an die Konsole bringen. Vielleicht sollte man noch etwas an der Story feilen, da diese nicht unbedingt fĂŒr den deutschen Markt geeignet ist. Sie ist zwar nicht das, was man als jugendfrei bezeichnen kann, aber darum hat sich bis jetzt bei keinem Spiel jemand gekĂŒmmert.

Tiger-Heli is not a visually stunning game and the game play is a bit choppy, but it is a lot of fun. We love shooters, so the appeal is there from the start by nature of the genre. We suggest you give this game a try ad see if it's overall game play doesn't win you over. We had a lot of fun with this one!

Tilt (12 out of 20)

Les paysages sont mis en valeur par un graphisme coloré qui soigne le détail jusqu'à ouvrir des plaies béantes dans les toits des maisons et dans l'asphalte des routes pilonnées par vos obus. L'avance de l'hélicoptÚre, accompagnée d'une musique répétitive, est moins laborieuse que dans Chopper X.

Mit dem actiongeladenen Spielhallen-Automaten und der PC-Engine-Version hat diese Schlaftablette nicht mehr viel gemein.

Laziness, in games and in war, usually results in death, unless lucky; so it is for Tiger-Heli. Shall I tell of the tokens you collect on the battlefield? Collecting ten nabs you an extra life. Try it. Sure as you’re born. What about the imploded pepperoni craters that appear whenever you destroy anything? They make me yearn for pizza, but tell me little about the game itself. Or perhaps, upon realizing that Tiger-Heli might be the most nondescript shooter on the NES, the mention of the pepperoni craters in my review says it all.

There’s nothing too horribly wrong with the game but the choppy scrolling and sluggish pace don’t do it any favors.

1UP! (45 out of 100)

TrĂšs vieux, trop vieux, Tiger-Heli est aussi une vilaine conversion du jeu d'arcade de Toaplan. En 1986, les dĂ©veloppeurs sont loin d'avoir exploitĂ© la NES et ils n'arrivent pas Ă  prĂ©venir une floppĂ©e de clignotements d'envahir l'Ă©cran. Mais l'Ăąge n'excuse pas la pauvretĂ© des dĂ©cors et moins encore tous les problĂšmes de gameplay comme la lenteur des dĂ©placements et l'action en boucle. MalgrĂ© quelques bonnes idĂ©es dans le maniement de l'hĂ©licoptĂšre et du plaisir en dĂ©but de partie, Tiger-Heli donne l'impression d'un jeu Ă  moitiĂ© fini, et peut-ĂȘtre mĂȘme moins.

Honestly even if Tiger Heli did not have technical problems it still would not be worth buying. There are other shooters that do everything better, buy those instead.

Um helicĂłptero de combate percorre um campo inimigo, devendo destruir tanques e bases inimigas e invadir a cidade guardada.

There are only two problems with the game. First, even with good graphics, it is almost impossible to determine the jetcopter's altitude. Second, it is too easy to accidentally discharge an impact bomb while firing missiles. Thankfully, neither of these weaknesses create serious problems for Tiger-Hell. Therefore, it is one of the most exciting arcade shoot- 'em-ups to turn up on the NES.
