Rick Dangerous, Indy and Flash

Rick Dangerous -the original Indiana Jones themed platform game- was recently crammed into a rather impressive 32kb program and made available as Rick32 for free. You can still get it here.

More exciting though, even if technically less impressive, is what happened to Rick Dangerous II (MobyGames entry here) -the Flash Gordon version of Rick. Well, he didn't start going all flash aha. No, he simply got himself remade. Into an excellent, faithful, freeware, WinXP compatible and highly enjoyable game no less. Search fot it somewhere here...

  4. Damn! I'd love having my face paraded all over the Vatican... Even painted on a ceiling or something... Pah, cant have everything it seems. Anyway, thank you Mr. Elderly. Tried any other religions? Perhaps they might be interested...

    Mr. Incredible! Yes, you're quite right there J, even though the film was barely funny.... Stii, this is Flash!

    OH, poor little father.... All you need is patience... Now, I do remeber having some maps of the game, but haven't seen those since I was 17, and that was a frightening long time ago...

  6. A fatwah? But why, oh why? It's totally unfair, but still, I'll take it like a gnome and then I'll laugh my ass off in a rice/wine/virgin filled paradise, while them death-mongering pseudo-religious fakes roast in hell... Ah, lovely!

    So I guess ..er.. thanks Elderly...
