About The Game
Tiger-Heli is a vertically scrolling arcade video game shoot-em-up.
Developed by Toaplan.
This is the first shooter to use a 'Megabomb'.
Pony Canyon released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Kyukyoku Tiger : G.S.M. Taito 2 - D28B0008) on 21/11/1988.
Bootlegs don't uses the M68705 @ 2 Mhz :-)
Tips and tricks
Blast everything. Civilian cars and houses, etc, all give 50 points each.
10,000 Points Bonus
At the start of the game, count your shots until arriving at the first railroad. If you've counted every 16 shots (16, 32, 48, 64 ...), a little car should enter the screen on the right side. Destroy it with next shot to get a 10,000 points bonus. There are similar cars throughout the game, but making them appear is a mystery.
Second 10,000 Points Bonus
Near the beginning there is a 'school house' with a red drum on the top. If you hit the red drum enough times, you'll get a 10,000 points bonus.
If you get shot soon after starting a new game, the game will often let you off and just fire a super bomb instead.
Lose your first player without scoring any points (make sure the second chance super bomb doesn't hit anything). The game puts you forward to a railway where a car will appear that can be shot for 10,000 points.
