Rick Dangerous is a action platform game developed by Core Design for the Amiga, Atari ST, Amstrad CPC, Spectrum ZX, Commodore 64 and DOS based PCs. It's been one of the most anticipated games of its time offering great puzzle along with platform fun. The game is largely based on the Indiana Jones movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark".
 
Review
Rick DangerousThe game is largelyA based on the Indiana Jones movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. Set in 1945, British agent Rick Dangerous travels to the Amazon jungle to search for the lost Goolu tribe. His plane crashes in the jungle, and Rick must escape from the enraged Goolu. When the game starts Rick finds himself in a cave running from a rolling boulder, a famous scene from the Indiana Jones movie!
Rick can jump and climb, and carry a limited amount of bombs and ammunition for his gun. The gun is mostly used to shoot enemies, although most traps that can kill Rick can also kill his enemies if used correctly. The bombs are generally used for puzzle solving, such as blowing out certain blocks. A bit difficult game to play though, but with quite interesting gameplay.

The ST graphics are nice, similar to the Amiga while superior to the MS-DOS version (running on EGA graphics), mainly due to the higher color palette. Sprites are cute and move relatively smooth on screen and the overall action fast. Each level has its own nice style (through Amazon jungles in South America, inside a Pyramid in Egypt, into the Schwarzendumpf castle and London).
The sound is excellent too! It features a nice intro music, and a few memorable funny digitized sound effects like Ricks' (and his enemies) baby screams when killed, explosions, gun fire etc. There are some short of tunes at the very start of each level too.
