Magazine reviews

"The puzzles are fiendishly devised and even when they are solved, a fair amount of arcade skill is needed to complete them. Superbly designed and executed, Rick Dangerous rates as one of the most enjoyable 16-bit arcade games for a long time. If only more game designers would concentrate more on creating a fun game than clever technical effects."
