When you talk to anyone about Rick Dangerous they always mention the bit at the start where you’re chased by a boulder, Indiana Jones-style. And that’s because a) It’s a neat little bit to get you moving and b) there really isn’t much else in this game to talk about. Look don’t get me wrong it was a cute little platformer and I liked the H.E.R.O.-esque “blowing stuff up with dynamite” mechanic but there really wasn’t that much gameplay in there when you play it for more than ten minutes. And man was it hard!
Funny to think the guys that made this went on to make Tomb Raider. Wait a minute, does this mean that Rick Dangerous is Lara Croft’s father? MIND BLOWN.
