The greatest Neanderthal athletes of all time share their secrets.

Before corporate sponsors and fashion gear, there were Caveman. Competition was ugh-ly. Athletes won by bashing the other guy first. Pick your favorite Ugh-lympian. Club your way through six pre-hysterical events. Beat your friends to the Caves Of Fame.

Zzap64! Overall Rating: 80%
A worthy investment if you want entertaining for a couple of weeks.

When the opening ceremonies and credits are over, you'll see NUMBER OF PLAYERS and the value 1. Push the joystick up to increase the number of players, pull it back to decrease the number. You can have up to six players. Press the joystick button to move on.

To choose your athlete, odd numbered players -- 1, 3, 5 -- will use joystick 1 (in port 2) and even numbered players -- 2, 4, 6 -- use joystick 2 (in port 1). To pick an athlete, click the button to get the club, move the club over the athlete's picture, and click the button to smash his or her head. You'll see the Neanderthal's biography and his or her strength in various events.

After you select the contestants, you'll see your game options. Highlight the option you want and press the joystick button.

During the game, you'll need to swap disks. Here's what each disk contains: Disk 1 = Boot disk; Disk 2 = Events: Mate Toss, Dino Race; Disk 3 = Events: Fire Making, Clubbing, Saber Race; and Disk 4 = Event: Dino Vault.

NOTE: You'll make most of your selections in the game using joystick 1 (the one that's plugged in port 2).

PRACTICE
Any Ugh-lympian with a gold medal around his or her hairy neck knows that "practice makes perfect" (this, by the way, may have been the first recorded sports quote in history). You can practice any of the six events; just highlight the one you want and click the joystick button. You can practice the event as many times as you want. When you see the prompt RESTART EVENT?, push the joystick up to pick YES or pull it back to pick NO, and then press the joystick button.
Take a torch-lit stroll through these caves and you'll see the record holders in all of the events except Clubbing. With diligence and training, your Ugh-lympian's mug can grace these walls some day. Press the joystick button to move from cave wall to cave wall.
MATE TOSS
Many a Neanderthal has gotten misty-eyed recalling the first time he grabbed his "one and only" by the hair and tossed her against the wall. Women have no problems excelling in this sport; said one enthusiastic lady proponent, "Me like him go splat!"
SABER RACE
The old saying "The race goes not always to the swiftest, but to those who can avoid being eaten" was probably coined by a participant in this event. Your Neanderthal had better be quick on his feet, since losing the Saber Race can bring new meaning to the phrase "agony of defeat." Nice kitty.
FIRE MAKING
The first and most important step in man's evolution towards a civilized existence was marked by his mastery of the techniques for building fire. The second was when he burned himself. Come relive this evolutionary milestone, and see how it was in "the good ol' days," before cooked meat and forest fires.
CLUBBING
The goal of this event is either to force the other player off the clubbing platform or to beat him senseless. There are two parts to this event: the Intimidation Phase and the Clubbing Phase.
DINO RACE
Long considered one of the most gruelling and difficult of all the Ugh-lympian events, the Dino Race is sure to separate the men from the chimps. Will your heroic cave-dweller make it to prehistoric fame and glory by successfully navigating the treacherous course and crossing the finish line first? Or will he simply eat dirt and suffer a lifetime of humiliation and disgrace? You decide.
DINO VAULT
Perhaps one of the most expensive events when it comes to paying the price for failure, dino vaulters have proven themselves either as athletes of steel nerves or zero brains. Dino vaulters don't care if they're sailing over a dinosaur named "Bilious Breath," "Incisor Face" or "Bottomless Pit" - just as long as they sail.
