Joe and Mac Cavemen Ninja

Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja is a side-scrolling platformer video game developed and released by Data East in 1991. Known as "Joe & Mac" in North America and "Caveman Ninja" in other regions, the game gained popularity for its humorous take on prehistoric themes, cooperative gameplay, and challenging levels.
The game is set in a colorful and cartoonish prehistoric world filled with dinosaurs, cavemen, and other primitive creatures. Players control one of two cavemen, Joe and Mac, on a quest to rescue a group of cave-women kidnapped by rival cavemen.

Retro gamer collector's corner:

The game was followed by various sequels. Joe also appeared in the 1993 Game Boy puzzle game Franky, Joe & Dirk: On the Tiles, along with Franky from Dr. Franken and Dirk the Daring from Dragon's Lair. The Japanese version of the SNES game Congo's Caper was presented as a sequel called Tatakae Genshijin 2: Rookie no Boken and featured a new protagonist. The title duo would later return in Joe & Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics, which added light role-playing aspects to the series. An arcade sequel titled Joe & Mac Returns eschewed the scrolling action of the original games in favor of gameplay similar to another Data East series, Tumblepop.
