Not every game that comes from the Codemasters stables is a classic, and some are even quite poor, but one thing I like about the Codies is the fact that they have their feet on the ground. They know their market, the games they like to play, and the price they can afford to pay, and they cater to this. Bigman the Caveman is familiar territory for platform fans.
The large conked one and his mates are looking forward to a slap-up Thanksgiving fest, but unfortunately they seem to be experiencing a few problems in the culinary quantity department, in that they have bugger all to eat.
Undeterred, Bignose picks up his trusty club and sets off in search of some grub in the form of a large and tasty looking pterodactyl which inhabits the other side of the island.
Needless to say it won't be a cakewalk - there are loads of creatures on several levels to bludgeon before you reach the goal. Bones and rocks can be collected as power ups, and there are one or two secret zones to discover as well.
Graphics are colourful and clear, sound isn't too bad, and although Bignose The Caveman is far from a gaming breakthrough, it's got enough to keep the younger players happy for a good while.
