Backlog Conquering - Prehistoric Dude - The Final Part

Welcome to Backlog Conquering.
This is part 3, the final part of playing Prehistoric Dude.

This is a very short video. i had two goals, get the missing weapon and beat the Enormousaurus boss that i was stuck on in video 2, the hope was that the new weapon would give me the boost i needed. but what actually happened was i found the weapon not really effective against Enormousaurus. it's such a big boss, getting close enough to use the club on it was just too dangerous. it was much safer to stick with throwing axes. so what i needed most was a little luck. thankfully i got it!

the way the game did credits was nice, there's a big thankyou and a short list of those who helped make the game. the next room takes us right back to the start of the game. this works because after you beat Enormousaurus, you get a special key that unlocks everything. so the game puts you back into the world to get what you missed. turns out i missed a powerup as i very quickly found the final powerup i was missing. 

Prehistoric Dude was a fun game to play. there are a couple of small issues, but the big one for me was how the game goes from controlling well when you jump to becoming a mess when you use vines or try to land on small moving platforms. missing out on powerups was a little frustrating but it didn't become a problem until right at the end. thankfully the game is small enough so backtracking didn't take too long. but the map only shows rooms instead of what's inside them, so it kinda felt like searching took longer than needed. but i do recommend giving it a go. it's not long and the Platinum Trophy is very achievable. there's not much story, but there's a nice twist at the end, but it is, mostly, a enjoyable gaming experience.
