There Was A Caveman reviews and comments

For me, another KULT platformer from the Indy area! Again, I wish the Title had already existed to my NES childhood. ' There Was A Caveman ' captivates with great Movement, quite a high Tempo and Fairness: Compared to many other Jump And Run disasters from the 80s and 90s a real Bliss. Here I recommend ' The Angry Video Game Nerd '-really bad what used to be fabricated there. TWAC is refreshing; The Levels and Opponent Types offer Variety. The Motivation never breaks off due to the pleasant Degree of difficulty. Individuals expecting a Ninja Gaiden or Castlevania may be too easy. Beginners will fail. Since I am right in the Middle: Very pleasant! The Soundtrack has a few Flaws, not all Songs can convince-but in everything Ok. Verdict: A highly polished platformer, with a highly sympathetic Atmosphere. For me, the little Caveman with his greasy mane is pure Cult. Too bad the Game doesn't attract more Attention. Total Insider tip for Old School Hoschis and all The greens who want to get a taste Of Retroair!

The Game is a basically phenomenal retro game and is very reminiscent of the Amiga times. Visually and playfully resembling the Classic "Prehistorik" one clings through the Pseudo-Stone Age. Pseudo-Stone Age, because Dinosaurs and Stone Age are swirled on each other. The Dinosaurs and the Surroundings are graphically very lovingly designed. However, the monotonous Music unnerves after some Time. In addition, this is more similar to the C64s Time and contrasts with the Amiga retro graphics look. I would have expected more, as both don't really fit together. The Controls are often hairy. In Level 2 "Woods," the function of flitting almost often does not go flawlessly. This becomes the Fruit for casual jump players like my One. Already stuck in Level 2, which is a little too early for my Taste. In other Words, The Degree of Difficulty is a little too high. All in All, "There was a Caveman" is a great Game. The Price is justified. It's solid and visually appealing and not overpriced. What Would be Desirable, however, would be a lighter Level of Difficulty for Beginners and a slightly better Control system. Otherwise it's a Game reminiscent of good old Amiga times and bringing Fun. I can certainly recommend it, with certain and stated Limitations. Pro: + Amiga-Retro Feeling + Great and lovingly designed Graphics + Nette Pseudo Stone Age Story with Stone Age people and dinosaurs + Joypad and Keyboard individually Adjustable + level are saved + Infinite Life (At Death you have to stop from the Beginning of the Level memory point section start) Contra: + Often Hakige Control + High Difficulty level for Beginners of the Genre with Fruit-factor starting At Level 2 at the latest
