Two of the better games on the Commodore Amiga were Rick Dangerous I and Rick Dangerous II. Designed, developed and coded by the then up and coming CORE Design (who later came to fame with the Lara Croft franchise), these simple yet very entertaining platform jump-and-runs were a delight to play – despite their relative difficulty.
Produced in 1989, the game was heavily based on the Indiana Jones films (as the developers themselves admit) and the Sunday Matinee adventure flicks of the 1940s and 50s – with an ironic twist. It was released for a variety of platforms, the Atari ST, Amiga, C64, MS-DOS, Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum – with the common differences in graphic quality back then.
