Description[edit]

Caveman Ughlympics is a stone age Olympics played using different combinations of keys on the player's keyboard or the NES controller. The game is made up of six events:

  • Saber Race, where the player races against an opponent avoiding both obstacles and the sabre tooth tiger running behind.
  • Matetoss, similar to the hammer throw, where the player has to spin their wife/husband and try and throw them as far as they can.
  • Firemaking, where the player races an opponent to create a full-burning fire.
  • Clubbing, where the player faces off against an opponent holding clubs on a cliff, trying to club the other off the cliff sides.
  • Dino Race, where the player sits on a dinosaur and races against an opponent, avoiding obstacles on the course.
  • Dino Vault, where the player has to pole vault over a Tyrannosaurus rex.
