The Adventures of Dino Riki

The adventures of Dino-Riki began in pre-historic times when ancient dinosaurs ruled the earth. Dino-Riki is determined to establish mankind's future in this violent age by exploring and fighting his way through deserts filled with quicksand, sinking lotus swamps, dark caverns and deep canyons. In his quest, Dino-Riki is armed with a shooting weapon that will change and progress from rocks to axes, to boomerangs and to fiery torches. There are many hidden items that will help Dino-Riki to increase his strength, extend his life, fly like an eagle and one that will change Dino-Riki to "Macho-Riki", the ancient warrior, etc... Dino-Riki will need all the ancient knowledge and items he can find before facing the dinosaur bosses: Tyrannosaurus, Pteranodon, Monster Fly and Giant Cobra.

Game Reviews

In a land before recorded time - or at least just prior to the founding of Bedrock - there lived a young lad named Dino-Riki. In those days humans didn't rule the Earth, but were subjects of a race of powerful dinosaur-like creatures. In Adventures of Dino-Riki, your task is to liberate humanity from these malevolent monsters. If you fail, man will never progress beyond the Paleolithic Age, and the world will never come to know such wonders as skateboards, Nintendo, and pizza-eating mutant turtles.

You start the game armed with nothing but a few pitiful stones. But thanks to evolution, you quickly progress to more powerful weapons, such as axes, torches, and boomerangs. Additional items give you extraordinary powers. Soon you'll be able to run more quickly, fly through the air, or even transform yourself into the formidable ancient warrior, Macho-Riki.

All this comes in handy, because the dino bosses you go up against are not exactly pushovers. There are five of them, and each has its own unique way of dispatching anyone foolish enough to lay down a challenge.

Of course, you can't just waltz up to the big guys and start fighting. First you'll have to battle your way through a nightmare menagerie of lesser monsters, eventually earning the chance to get fatally beaked by an irate pteranodon.

There are also a number of "natural" disasters to contend with. In the swamps, you'll encounter lily pads that tend to disappear just as you step on them, and hidden pits of quicksand that suddenly appear with the same deadly timing.

And, of course, the stages get progressively tougher - not that there isn't enough action to keep you busy from the very beginning. In this game, there's definitely no rest for the weary.

Adventures of Dino-Riki won't be mistaken for an educational program on prehistory- But it does provide nonstop action and excitement, spiced with a touch of humor.
