As with many arcade games of this age, the controls for it are presented.
The only thing added to this version are these pop up menus. Here, for instance, you select number of players, access the options menu, the help screen or exit the game.
In the intro cutscene, women are kidnapped from the protagonists village.
Starting a new game. Defeated cavemen often drop food, which can be used to replenish your health.
Things are quite busy around the sleeping dinosaur. The caveman behind the bush is carrying an egg. Inside those you'll find food and sometimes other weapons.
The first boss. If the player holds the attack button, the attack is charged and, when released, the weapon is a lot bigger and does more damage.
After beating a stage, a map shows where the player is heading next.
Stage two. Several obstacles are presented to the player. In this case, I was hit by an electric fish.
The second boss is a giant carnivorous plant. In this case I'm armed with a stone projectile. Each boss holds a kidnapped woman from your village.
Some stages are divided in two parts. After reaching the middle of them, the player is presented with a choice of two courses to follow. I'm taking course A here.
After selecting a course, a little preview is shown. I should expect bees in this next level.
This is a vertical scrolling stage. The player must climb these trees, while watching out for those bee hives.
At the top of the trees you'll find the third boss, a giant green pterodactyl.
Stage three is a short but busy one. The player progresses jumping from log to log in a running river.
The boss(es) in this stage are these sharp teeth dolphins. My weapon here are those wheels, which sweep the ground as they roll.
Stage 3, course A, is another vertical scrolling stage. This time the player is carried down a waterfall by a pterodactyl.
At the base of the waterfall the boss, a water dwelling sauropod, awaits.
Stage 4 takes place in a volcanic environment. It seems that Data East is around for quite some time now.
Stage 4, course A. If you take too long to move, Joe will wave at you.
The stage 4 boss is an euoplocephalus.
After beating the euoplocephalus, the ground will crumble and Joe will fall to a short vertical scrolling bonus stage where he can try to grab all the food he can.
At the bottom of the pit lies a cave where the next boss, a mastodon, awaits.
Stage 5 seems to be a dinosaur burial ground.
The boss here is a dinosaur skeleton.
Stage 5, course A. Walking under the ribcage of a dead dinosaur seems the safest path in this stage.
The next boss spits smaller dinosaurs, specially when hit.
After beating the huge dinosaur, the player enters its belly to find yet another boss.
