    Short summary describing this game.

    Cliffhanger is a brawler based on the 1993 Sylvester Stallone movie, and the player assumes the role of Sly's character Gabe. As in the movie, Gabe and fellow rescue worker Hal are forced at gunpoint to work with some terrorists to recover deposit boxes filled with cash from the US Treasury that were scattered across the Rocky Mountains.

    The 16-bit versions of the game (SNES, Genesis and Sega CD) are brawlers much like Double Dragon or Final Fight. The Sega CD version also includes a fast-paced stage where Gabe tries to outrun an avalanche sledding down a hill, as well as cutscenes taken from the movie. The 8-bit versions (Game Boy, Game Gear, NES) are platformer action games.

    Cliffhanger won the award for Worst Movie-To-Game of 1994 by EGM magazine.
