Description of Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja

A great conversion from the hit arcade game of the same name, Joe and Mac: Caveman Ninja is a fun platform game starring to bumbling cavemen, Joe and Mac.

After their “cave-babes” were kidnapped by rival gangs of Neanderthals, the cavemen ninja decide to strike back. Armed with a variety of Stone Age projectile weapons, the two will fight their way,with your help, through six levels of jungle adventures, facing threats from nasty cavemen, angry bees, giant plants and more dinosaurs than you can shake a petrified stick at.

Joe and Mac begin the game armed with stone axes, but by cracking open eggs left by defeated pterodactyls along the way, the two could upgrade their arsenal. The caveman ninjas have mastered the art of combat, with fireballs, wheels, boomerangs and even powerful doppelgangers of themselves. For a more powerful blow, you could hold down the attack button to make Joe and Mac swing their arms around wildly, building up energy (at least until they got tired).

Regardless of the threats against them, Joe and Mac never lose their sense of fun. The game is peppered with funny little touches—from the goofy cartoon graphics to the comic sound effects. The combination of traditional platform gaming and silly antics made Caveman Ninja a favorite of many in the arcades, leading to a successful follow-up, Joe & Mac Return, in 1994, which unfortunately was never translated to the PC.

Highly recommended!

I played this on MAME and then DOS. All I can say is there is no difference in the graphics, very impressive for a 1991 PC game.
Arcade perfect. Also agree below the Amiga version is very bad.

Sorry, which password must be entered?

The DOS version is arcade perfect, easily the best of all the ports. If you have a Roland MT-32 it even sounds better than the Arcade's Music. Amazing port for late 1991.
The Amiga version is total cr@p, it took another 1.5 years later to come out and even though by Amiga standards it normal, compared to even the Mega Drive port it is awful.
