Daves Risky Rescue is a cool platformer

Much in the style of the first Duke Nukem game (which was actually a platformer) and also reminiscent of Xargon, the third installment of Dangerous Dave is a sturdy platformer that is a staple of DOS platformers, much in the way Super Mario was for the NES console. Instead of making his way through steel and glass environments, Dave is for the time being traveling through a maze of trees and vegetation, but the later stages will change the environment quite a bit. The controls are simple and intuitive, set a button for jumps and another one to shoot and try to get the enemies before they get to you. Also, you have to dodge projectiles, negotiate your way from platform to platform and make sure you don't miss any of the weapon upgrades. You can also replenish your life with the appropriate potions but, be careful, they are in short numbers and need to be spared as much as possible. All in all, Dangerous Dave 3 is a very playable and enjoyable platformer that will remind you why the 90s DOS platformers were so special. Whether you're going to play it in one sitting or in 5 minute chunks the game will still remain in your mind for days to come, if not more!
