Cliff Hanger, the game that keeps you on the edge of your toes.

By controlling the joystick and the action button, you determine the fate of Cliff, a lovable outcast and his quest to rescue one beautiful breathtaking lady. But one mistake, and you've blown it.

— The first few lines in the game's attract mode, explaining the game.

One of the earliest attempts to localize Lupin III to North America, Cliff Hanger is a Laserdisc interactive film that uses footage from two Lupin III films, amalgamating the two into a game. This game is infamous among Lupin III fans for its rather... interesting English dub.

Unused Cinematic

To do:
Many of the death clips for level 3 on the disc I have never seen in-game, most notably the one at 10:33. Verify if any of these are actually unused.

At the end of most of the sets of wrong move clips on the Laserdisc, there is a unused clip of Cliff sourced from The Mystery of Mamo holding a rose.

It's unknown where this could have possibly been used, especially when the promotional video makes special mention of it, stating how "the game talks to the player". There is no instance of this in the game.
