Prehistorik is an action platform game developed in 1991 by Titus, for the Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Amiga OCS and DOS home computers.
Prehistorik is a wonderful action platform that grants great fun! The game is a 2D platform with action elements where your main objective is to go through prehistoric jungles and caves in search for food, to save your self from starving to death! But this is not an easy task as deadly prehistoric creatures are out there seeking for food as well, and you must also be careful of some hungry humans that would do everything to take you out of their way! You have to complete each level within a time limit while a boss awaits in each of the game's seven different levels. The gameplay is quite easy, very fun and very addictive at the same time. Prehistorik reminds us a lot the Chuck Rock, well at least in terms of gameplay and its main storyline. So, all you have to do is to jump over deadly pits or gaps or fire, hit the enemies (animals and humans) with your wooden pole (or rock axe), avoid object thrown at you and just gather food to fulfill your precious hunger bar.

Prehistorik features nice and cute graphics with quite smooth character animations though the game scrolls in flip-screen, in all 16bit computer versions. The backgrounds are nicely detailed and the sprites are colorful and look so funny! As with all versions, a total of 16 colors on screen is found here. Technically speaking, the ST version looks almost identical to the PC and Amiga counterparts in terms of graphics, with a small difference in which the sprites move a bit more "jerky", while framerate slows down when a high number of sprites occupy the screen. The game's sound on the ST is also good and includes a nice introductory tune plus some cool sound effects during the game, but unfortunately there is no in-game music on this version.

On our video below you may watch all 4 available versions of the game.
The Atari ST version is at 11:33.
