If you accept the blocky graphics and at times messy use of colour there's some vestige of a good axe romp within, although it may not look it.
The Amstrad version is colourful, if slightly chunky, and quite comfortable in use. However, the strategic aspect is severly underplayed, and it's quite often a question of pressing the fire like crazy, or simply jumping out of the way. It's fun for a while, but not likely to cause much of a stir among devotees of the genre.
For all its faults, Tiger Road does have a certain charm, but the limited gameplay and sloppy bugs (such as the floating corpse) become more and more irritating. The sleeve claims that Tiger Road is "practically four games rolled into one". It looks more like one game stretched into four. The package includes a voucher for entry into a competition to win a trip to Silicon Valley, but even this isn't enough to revive a poor game with every limited lasting appeal.
