Cliffhanger for the Sega Game Gear is a side-scrolling video game released in 1994. It was developed by Sony Imagesoft as a tie-in to the 1993 Sylvester Stallone film Cliffhanger. This version was only released in North America.


Though the premise of the game is the same, the Game Gear version of Cliffhanger differs from the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Mega-CD versions by being a traditional sidescroller as opposed to a beat'-em-up. 1 jumps and 2 punches.
