Danger and Rick get along
Rick Dangerous 2 is the sequel to the platform game with the same name (Rick Dangerous) from 1989 developed by Core Design for Amiga, Atari ST, Amstrad CPS, Commodore 64 and 2 other PC platforms. The game is greatly inspired by Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark. In the first game, set in 1945, the Indiana Jones like main character Rick is trapped in the Amazon Jungle and fights his way around with pistols and dynamites, evading traps, trying to find his way back to London, only to find it evaded by aliens. In the sequel, Rick deals with the alien invasion much in the same way, only our buddy Rick is now much improved and empowered Ã¢â‚¬â€œ he has a laser gun, a punch attacks and bombs that can not only be placed, but also slid. Unlike the last game, the first four levels can be played in any order and to unlock the last level with the boss you have to finish them all. Both games were highly praised and there is very good reason why Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the game is very fun and very dynamic, Rick has great abilities and weapons and the storyline of London under UFO attack is unusual but very interesting. The graphics are quite simple with small sprites but there is quite some variation in the levels. The difficulty level will assure the game will last you quite a while and the game's well worth the effort so give it a go.
