At first sight A Prehistoric Tale looks distinctly dodgy, with poor graphics and sound, but you'll find the pleasure of the game lies in the playing. Those who remember the Chuckie Egg epics may have already noticed the similar task of collecting eggs and running up and down ladders. You wouldn't be far wrong in saying that both Henhouse Harry and Cronos Warchild have a lot in common. This is no bad thing, as this gem of a platform game has all the addictive qualities of Harry. If you love staying awake for hours playing away you should go and buy this. If there is any query it has to be the price, as these days you wouldn't pay £25 for Chuckie Egg.
Leider verlangsamt sich auch der gesamte Ablauf, sobald zu viele Sprites über den Schirm huschen (beispielsweise beim Flugsaurier-Angriff). Die Zeichnungen an sich sind recht nett gelungen. Allerdings muß man sagen, daß dieses Game sehr Dino Eggs ähnelt - oder besser: Die Spielidee wurde fast komplett übernommen. Trotzdem macht es doch Fun, die Saurierbabys zu retten. Wie heißt es so schön: "Jeden Tag 'ne gute Tat."
