Basic Idea: Use skateboards, dinosaurs, and tomahawks to save your girl.
Review: I was never a huge fan of this series. The first game has pretty counter-intuitive controls and level design required memorization of pits and enemies to be successful. And, to be blunt, the series is just not that interesting. There are few secrets, crisp but unmemorable graphics, and just not a whole lot going on. But the second game improves vastly upon the first, from the graphics to the level design to the addition of several dinosaurs you can control to your benefit, all with different abilities. And unlike Little Nemo: The Dream Master, the use of your monsters is intuitive.
Levels are perhaps a bit too short for my taste, but there is a nice variety. While the game doesn’t excite me, it is well made and worth a look.
