In Black Tiger a barbarian hero jumps and fights his way through a variety of colorful, enemy-packed levels. The sprawling, eight-way scrolling levels are packed with hidden bonuses to encourage and reward exploration. Though a percentage of these bonuses consist of dubious and often self-evident "advice", most come in the form of "Zenny coins", currency that allows the player to buy such items as an upgrade to their weapons and armor, keys for treasure chests, and anti-poisoning potions. Special items that reveal coins, upgraded armor, full vitality, extra lives, extra time, or simply bonus points may be found by attacking certain walls. The player's vitality bar will also increase up to three times as a reward for reaching score benchmarks.
