Rick Dangerous is a Amiga game made by Core Design
in the early 90's.
It is a action platform
er with "inspiration" from the Indiana Jones
type plots that was very popular on that time.
The player controls an Indy-like character
through flip-screen 2D mazes
filled with traps
and nasty inhabitants. The well-designed levels require not only dexterity with the joystick
but also provide lots of work for the "old grey matter" as the player needs to think his way around the puzzle
s, villains and traps of the level.
Rick Dangerous combines a well known game formula
with excellent level design
and slick game controls. It has oodles of detail and humour
and a charismatic
. Its gameplay
is simple to learn yet difficult to master. A true Amiga classic
in its purest form.
