Someone has kidnapped Pebbles and Bam Bam, and their only hope is for Fred to save the day! Fred collects as many gems and stones as possible in order to raise the ransom and rescue Pebbles and Bam Bam from the cracked kidnapper, Cliff. Sounds easy, eh? Think again, my Cro-Magnon friend!
Poor old Fred is up to his prehistoric neck in Bedrock bedlam in this ridiculous game, based on the blockbuster movie of last summer. However, the only thing the two have in common is that neither one of them is very entertaining.
Fred's weapon of choice is a neolithic bowling ball to bowl down gnarly cave dudes, stone age toads and baby Dodo birds. Not your style? Well then, use volcanic lava rocks to throw at anything that moves. Or, as a last resort, break out with a fossilized club to bludgeon all the wretched nasties.
Unfortunately, this game seems to be no more than just a small part of a movie merchandising blitz. It's really too bad because the game looks and plays very well, but in their efforts to make this game challenging, they totally forgot to make it fun. There is absolutely no incentive for you to keep playing. It's so boring and repetitive, it had me saying, "Yabba Dabba Don't!"
