Prehistoric platform game more in the Mario mould than Chuck Rock (but apparently with it's roots in a game called 'Bonk!'). It features a cute caveboy saving the princess by completing levels and killing end of level guardians. Ho hum, eh?
But the characters were lovable and the baddies dastardly. The background music suited and the game had responsive controls. Climbing walls by biting them soon seemed an everyday occurence. Even the game's sub-cartoon graphics seems to bode well. A well-polished game.
(I always imagined the main character as Charlie Brown.)
