Big Nose the Caveman is a NES game released in 1991 by Camerica. It is a side scroller. In 1993-94, work was done on a port for the Sega Master System, but it was never released commercially, although a prototype version exists (with the title Dinobasher: Starring Bignose the Caveman).

Gameplay[edit]

The character is "Big Nose", who is runs through many islands to find his dinner, because he is very hungry. Along the way, Big Nose collects bones, that he can use to buy items from the various shops that include spells, upgrades to his abilities and items.

This game is also very difficult due to the inability to restart from the last checkpoint once all lives are gone. It is also very long with four islands (Paradise Island, Monster Island, Terror Island, and Chaos Island) each containing several levels. Big Nose the Caveman dies in a single hit unless he has stones. The stones can shoot out of his club, killing enemies. As many as three stones can come out of the club. There are also many pitfalls, traps and deadly lava/water since Big Nose can't swim.

It was followed by the sequel Big Nose Freaks Out in 1992.
