Caveman Ugh-lympics

Sport 1988 Dos Dosbox Dynamix Humorous

Collection of Olympic games but set in the stone age

Here's a nice premise: What types of sports would cavemen from our prehistory tackle, if they had such sports. Well, if you want to find out, you have got to try this game. You get a humorous take on classic games that are regularly played out at the Olympics. For instance, a regular running game will also sport a tiger chasing you while other sports have such cheeky versions of these sports as well. However, humorous or not, the game is simply not that fun to play, both because of the graphics, abut also because of the controls. Most games are too sketchy and ask of you to bash buttons without too much thinking about it. This takes the fun out of them and depletes them of any actual challenge. Other games, like the caveman fencing are simply too fiddly, and you never get to enjoy them either, as there is no overarching strategy behind them, just luck and button mashing. Thus, the game, as fun as it could have been is brought down by its rather poor implementation, graphics, controls, depth of each minigame. I cannot recommend it wholeheartedly, though its worth a visit just because it will make you smile for a few minutes.
