There Was A Caveman is a prehistoric themed, retro styled, action platformer. Get ready to die and die a lot. The world has been overrun by dinosaurs. The last living caveman, is left alone in his cave, with every other living thing he knew dead. But he does not want to give up the world to these ferocious beasts. So with what little hope he has left, he will venture out of his caves, to find the only thing, that could save the world as he knows it - A female specimen to rebuild the cavemen civilization. But doing that wont be easy as the world is full of these dangerous creatures and other deadly hazards!
For me another cult platformer from the Indy area! Here, too, I wish that the title had already been given to my NES childhood. 'There Was A Caveman' captivates with great movement, a quite high speed and fairness: Compared to many other jump...
and run catastrophes from the 80s and 90s a real delight. Here I recommend 'The Angry Video Game Nerd' - really bad what was made there earlier. TWAC is refreshing; the levels and opponent types offer variety. The motivation never stops due to the pleasant level of difficulty. Individuals expecting a Ninja Gaiden or Castlevania may find it too easy. Beginners will fail. Since I am right in the middle: Very pleasant! The soundtrack has a few flaws, not all songs are convincing - but okay in everything.
Conclusion: A highly polished platformer, with a highly sympathetic atmosphere. To me, the little caveman with his racy mane is a pure cult. It's a pity the game doesn't attract more attention. A complete insider tip for old school hoschis and all greenlings who want to get a taste of retro air!
