Crystal Software and Electronics were an ambitious software house trying to save the C64 gaming market back in 1997 with a large range of planned releases. Sadly it wasn’t to be, and as with other companies – it was found not to be a financially viable proposition to try and make money out of the C64.
Out of the newly planned titles was Shian "Tiger Style" a C64 game which was described in adverts as follows:
"The first of many episodes of this Kung-Fu arcade adventure. The game design is still in the drawingboard state but we feel confident that it will be ready for release within a year if we can find the right programming crew to do it."
"Do you have what it takes to play the role of a young kung-fu fighting royalist and restore your former king to glory? Your mission to get the sacred "Tiger Style" scrolls to the king of the neighbouring country will be hard, to say the least."
This is all we currently know about the game, so its early days (Though a sequel called Shian "Wu Dang" was planned even at this early stage) and we hope to find out more soon about this one!
Do you know anything more?
