prehistoric setting, and one that was up for consideration was Frak. That was until I realised it's not actually very prehistoric-ish at all. Besides starring a caveman called Trogg, there isn't much else that fits the necessary criteria. Trogg's job, you see, is to collect three keys on each of the three stages that make up the game. These consist of a few large and many smaller platforms which might look as though they've been arranged in a bit of a jumble, but they've actually been very deliberately placed to make it as tricky as possible to finish each stage by taking full advantage of Trogg's somewhat limited movement. He ambles around the screen slowly, jumps awkwardly, and can't fall more than about a nanometre without losing a life.
|Stage one and many Scrubblies look on menacingly...|
|The third and easily the hardest stage...|
|Trogg hasn't fallen far but he's still bitten the big one...|
RKS Score: 6/10
Gameplay Video: I've lost my ability to record these clips (hopefully temporarily) so here is someone else's fine effort at this tricky platformer...
