Back of Box - DOS (US):

    the HUMANS™

    "Just what the heck are HUMANS?... and what are they doing in a computer game anyhow?" We know, we've heard it before, they're strange, they're ugly, they're...stupid. But there's more to these HUMANS than meets the eye, for inside each and every one of them is a small but usable brain. Working as a team and discovering new tools (fire, weapons, the wheel, deodorant, etc.) is the key to survival in this cruel world of chaos and carnivores. It's a naive struggle against extinction, where you score points by finishing levels with as many of your tribesmen intact as HUMAN-ly possible. Love, death, food... it's all here. With GameTek's computer version of HUMANS, the only missing link is you.

    the HUMANS™

    KEEP THE TRIBE ALIVE!

    The Neanderthals are up to their ears in hot lava, and you're their only hope. Can you teach them to throw? Rocks, spears and torches are preferred. Smart ones can learn to pick up ropes and roll wheels. You can stack humans in your favor. Don't let them play with witch doctors, dinosaurs or lizards in love. Keep cool, and keep the tribe alive.

    the HUMANS™ 1 PLAYER

    "Just what the heck are HUMANS™?... and what are they doing in a video game anyhow?" We know... we've heard it before, they're strange... they're ugly... they're stupid. But there's more to these HUMANS than meets the eye, for inside each and everyone of them is a small but usable brain. Working as a team and discovering new tools is the key to survival in this cruel world of chaos and carnivores. It's an action-filled race against time, where you score points by finishing levels with as many of your tribesmen intact as HUMAN-ly possible, (which isn't that easy when it comes down to survival of the fittest). With Gametek's Sega Genesis version of HUMANS, the only missing link is you.
