OK, so here we have yet another budget platformer… there are a ton of them. What does Prehistoric Dude do in order to draw your eyes to it instead of the competition? Well, not all that much that truly excites. Sure, if you’re down with the overall cave man thing it could sound cool but your enemies aren’t hulking dinos or even modestly-sized ones. Instead you’ll mostly be dealing with (much) smaller scourges like bees and snails! OH MY GOD! Worse, you’re not able to even jump on them, you’ll need to waste thrown weapons on them, and since they’ll show up pretty randomly in brush it can be aggravating when your goal is to clear a room of enemies and stocking up is working against you. Throw in a pretty large map that you’ll spend a lot of time backtracking around to figure out where you can go next and it’s not a very exciting affair.
