It’s basically like a puzzle-platformer, reminds me a bit of the original Pac-Man with the grid and stuff to pick up. You have to collect all the eggs then exit where the HOME platform appears. There’s a lot of objects to pick up or avoid on the way, like:
- Flowers that speed you up
- Mushrooms which slow you down
- Books that freeze the enemies
- Fire to shoot fireballs
- Fire that makes you burn
- Tar pits that you sink into and die
- Pineapples which turn you into a giant T-REX!
(Awesome!!) and you can eat all the cavemen ^_^
The gameplay is smooth and can be quite fast if you take enough flowers and avoid mushrooms. You can hit the cavemen to avoid them eating you, but you have to make sure to hit first, cause if they do then you are dead.. Also you can fall of the edges of the platform which you are running around on, so you have to make sure to turn quickly!
AAAHHH! FALLING OFF EDGE!!!! >_<
The game was easy to grasp and easy to progress through in the beginning but the difficulty increased with each new stage. The cavemen got smarter, started using new ways of reaching you, and more enemies were introduced, like wheels that were faster than you etc.
This was all in all a very enjoyable game, lots of stages and different difficulty modes, which seemed to actually just start you off further into the game instead of increasing difficulty, but that’s OK since the game didn’t have a save feature or passwords.
Here’s a movie I put together of the gameplay. I’m sorry for the sound quality but my NES insisted on growling in the background >_<
