Description of Rick Dangerous
Classic puzzling platform game and one of the first bigger hits by Core Design. Obviously a bit inspired by Indiana Jones, Rick Dangerous is a very addicting game with many nice twists and touches. It's difficult, you will most likely die a thousand deaths and have to go through the same screens again and again. But after all that's what makes it what it is. You know what I mean! :)
In addition to hazards that Rick must watch out for, various switches and levers dotted around each level must be discovered and used. These activate lifts, guns, and various other widgets which can be made to work to your advantage. The Amiga and Atari ST versions are much nicer, though - music and graphics-wise. In case you wonder, the keyboard controls are ZXOK and SPACE.
Overall, Rick Dangerous is an outstanding platform/puzzle hybrid that follows in the footsteps of the likes of Parker Brothers' classic Montezuma's Revenge. Also check out the superior follow-up Rick Dangerous 2 from the same design team.

I loved it as a kid... because I had no choice. And now I don't know why I loved it so much.
