A Flintstone man adventure of cartoonish proportions!
Prehistorik is a sidescroller game, a pretty fun and simple one, but definitely worth playing, for those that love sidescrollers, those that loved the Flintstones or any other cartoonish series with prehistoric men with bats for weapons! Now, the gameplay is simple and really engaging; you have to traverse the sidescrolling lanes of each level; you get to beat the heck out of the enemies, but at times it is best to dodge or jump over them as well, rather than just go full on at them! Diversity wise, while there are a few puzzles here and there, sprinkled to keep the game fresh, you shouldn't expect anything out of the ordinary. It's got no elements that would take you away from the game, the basic running and batting things (and prehistoric people!) over their heads. Graphically, it is well in the style of the early 90s, sort of NES looking, but with distinct DOS characteristics. The backgrounds are made out of tiles, but occasionally you'll see areas that seem to be drawn and then digitized, the enemies are not too diverse in terms of looks, and for the most part, Prehistorik just keeps playing well and looking just great. So, it's definitely worth looking into, as this is a game that really known what's up. So, have it in your collection, it will definitely not disappoint!
