Taking inspiration from how Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing simulates high-speed truck battles, this game simulates the life of a black tiger who thanks to its color, has no choice but to slaughter every non-tiger it sees. This genocidal quest is made fairly easy as one and all, enemies (all non-tigers) will slowly make their way over to the black tiger in a straight line thanks to no object collision detection to speak of and slowly jab at him with claws or jaws or spears (in the case of humans). This is fine, as the black tiger is quickly demonstrated to have by far the highest armor and DPS of any life form it encounters. The black tiger is gifted with an unexplained and highly limited teleportation ability that lets him face any of eight directions without any perceivable transition time, making his movement animation very disconcerting to his enemies as well as the player. The only non-enemy the black tiger encounters is compassionately and exclusively referred to as "The Female Tiger", who the Black Tiger with his unexplained glowing scars, must court in order to propagate his edgelord species.
Originally a free game on mobile devices, Life of Black Tiger was released for download on the PS4 in January of 2017 with a price point of $9.99. After Sony published a trailer for it at the same time as, and presumably to compete with the announcement for the Nintendo Switch, it quickly incited a controversy over whether the whole thing was a huge joke on Sony's part. It has since become widely regarded as the worst game on the PS4 platform.
