Prehistorik is a platform game developed by Titus Interactive for the Amiga, Atari ST, Amstrad CPC and DOS. Titus Interactive also published it, and released the game in 1991.

The playable character is a neanderthal armed with a club. In a search for food, the neanderthal must hit dinosaurs and other animals that come in his way. Some hostile beings can't be beat, so the player must dodge them. A boss awaits in every even numbered level. There are seven levels.

Prehistorik received a rating of 85% from Amiga Action in August 1991, with the review stating "after playing Prehistorik for a few minutes I was not disappointed. Graphics, sound and gameplay are all outstanding. My only complaint is that the puzzle element could have been taking (sic) a little further. A must for any platform or arcade fan."

A sequel called Prehistorik 2 was released for DOS and Amstrad CPC. The sequel was also ported to numerous Nintendo systems and became a downloadable title for the Nintendo DSi in North America on February 15, 2010.

In 2013, Anuman Interactive launched a remake of the game, adapted for iPhone, iPad and Android.[1]
